Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2002
This description of Krishna Roy's work was prepared when Krishna Roy was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2002.
A leader in the women's movement in eastern India, Krishna Roy is creating a broad network of citizen "watchdogs" equipped to respond quickly to reports of violence against women and children. Her approach is especially important to victims who live in rural areas and lack access to other reporting and rescue programs.
