Conversation With Harnaaz SandhuVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Reigning Miss Universe and women's rights advocate
As part of an enhanced focus by Asia Society on India this year and in the spirit of this week’s International Women’s Day, we are pleased to host a conversation with Harnaaz Sandhu, a women’s right advocate and reigning Miss Universe, in a joint event with ImpactWayv.
She will be interviewed by Asia Society France’s Chairman, Serge Dumont, on Tuesday, March 15th. Please use the following link to dial in.
As a spokeswoman, Ms. Sandhu is leveraging her position as Miss Universe to call for women’s constitutional rights to education, careers, and freedom of choice. She is also passionate in her advocacy for Women’s Health issues with a focus on Menstrual Equity.
Harnaaz Sandhu was crowned Miss Universe at the 70th Miss Universe Competition live from Eilat, Israel in December 2021 at the age of 21, bringing the crown back to India for the first time in 20 years.
She draws her inspiration from her mother, who broke generations of patriarchy to become a successful gynecologist and led her family. Driven to support other women the same way, Harnaaz grew up working with her mother at health camps addressing women's health and menstrual hygiene.
Deeply conscious of the privilege her mother's struggles have gifted her, Harnaaz today is a strong advocate for women's empowerment, particularly their constitutional rights to education, careers, and their freedom of choice. Professionally, Harnaaz is an actor with two Punjabi films slated for release in 2022, and hopes to break stereotypes that the world has for women.
