Profile of Trisha Shetty
Trisha was born and brought up in Mumbai in an affluent family. She was a bright student from her school days. Ever since her college days, she wanted to become a lawyer. She was determined to shine in the legal profession. For that, Trisha first did B. A. in Political Science and Psychology from Jai Hind College and later did Bachelors of Law.
The infamous Delhi Rape case of Nirbhaya in 2012 changed the heart of Trisha. She was no more looking forward to earn big bucks through proper legal channel. She wanted to do something for women who are being sexually abused and because of social pressure don’t disclose molestation. There was no proper platform available that can educate these women about legal rights and how to access them.
Trisha along with her sister Neha launched an online portal for the same purpose. She named the portal – SheSays (shesays.com) indicating a will to give voice to women who have been sexually exploited. This platform started to get lots of eyeballs and thousands of volunteers also come forward to help other women.
Obviously, Trisha’ novel attempt has been recognized and appreciated by every right minded people. She has, in fact, become a voice for women who have to face sexual molestation in one or other forms daily. The Bangalore mass molestation on 31st December 2016 only highlighted the needs of people like Trisha in our society.
