Samidha Mathur

Samidha Mathur is currently a fifth-year law student at Gujarat National Law University, Gandhinagar in India. Her interest greatly lies in examining the intersection between culture, disability and sexuality, and how all of these intertwine in the world around us, and possibly in examining this intersection also paving way for more accessible and equitable policy making in India. It was her own experiences with inaccessibility as a woman suffering from numerous invisible illnesses which got her interested in how majoritarianism often silences several minorities. She is also one of the founders of the GNLU Gender & Sexuality Forum, as well as one of the lead coordinators for the GNLU Centre for Law & Economics, whilst also holding leadership positions in several other college committees. She has a keen interest in feminist theory, queer theory, justice and accessibility. She has also previously written for the Oxford Human Rights Hub, as well as the Columbia Transnational Law Bulletin. In her free time, she can be found feeding stray dogs, or reading strong feminist authors.
