Letchumanan Kamaleswary is a Project Manager at the Centre for Equality and Justice (CEJ), a women’s rights organization based in Colombo, Sri Lanka. CEJ’s mission is to achieve gender justice so that men, women, and persons with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) live in a society that is free, just, and equal.

Kamaleswary has conducted research studies on Malaiyaha Tamil women, a minority group in Sri Lanka. The findings have been presented at different forums to advocate for the rights of minority women. In 2015, the Office for the United Nations High Commissioners for Human Rights (OHCHR) selected her for a Minority Rights fellowship program.

“As a visionary leader, I aspire to mobilize relevant stakeholders to advocate for minority women’s rights in Sri Lanka.”
