Sandhya Menon

With 15 years of print journalism experience across national newspapers behind her, Sandhya is currently a freelance journalist and writer. She writes on causes closest to her heart, namely mental health and safe workplaces for women.

The first cause came from her diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder and Bipolar Disorder, while the second cause came from her own experience of facing sexual harassment at work.

More recently, she played a pivotal role in bringing about the second wave of #MeToo India with her posts on Twitter where she spoke of her own experience as well as help amplify voices of other women who wanted to publicly call out harassers at the workplace. Sandhya is a single mum who also enjoys watercolours and crochet.
