Anasuya Sengupta is an Indian feminist activist, scholar, and co-founder of Whose Knowledge?, who lives and works across multiple continents and online as a Wikipedian. She joined the Wikimedia Foundation in 2012, became Chief Grantmaking Officer, and then began in earnest to edit and amplify marginalised knowledges on Wikipedia as a volunteer. She has led and supported social justice initiatives in India and the United States, particularly against caste- and sexuality- based discriminations, religious fundamentalisms, and gender-based violence. She acknowledges the multiple positions of power and disempowerment she holds, especially as an “upper caste” savarna brown woman from the Global South.
