About South Asian Women’s Space

Founded in 2015, the South Asian Women’s Space is a peer-led space that provides respectful discussion and solidarity for South Asian women within the Penn community in an effort to promote identity exploration and learning/unlearning about aspects of our identities in a safe space. We are open to all that identify with the community or are processing through these identities, and women from all religious backgrounds, caste communities, socioeconomic backgrounds, gender identities, skin tones, sexual orientations, ethnic origins across the diaspora are welcome. The space is facilitated by the students with additional support provided by advisors and funding from PAACH, PWC, CAPS and more.
