Yoni Ki Baat

Yoni Ki Baat is a growing collection of authentic, bold, vivid, tender, powerful, and poignant stories told by South Asian women. Seattle’s Yoni Ki Baat has taken a creative life of its own in a unique space of sharing and community through sourcing and presenting true stories from local South Asian women. Each year our narratives shed light on the special challenges and opportunities experienced in the South Asian socio-cultural context, whether in native lands or in adopted homelands. Acknowledging female sexuality as an essential aspect of identity, experience and expression, this transformative space encourages South Asian women to express their challenges, hopes, dreams, breakdowns, breakthroughs, and aspirations for change on behalf of their bodies.

This year's Yoni Ki Baat is directed by Rituja Indapure.

Yoni Ki Baat was founded by South Asian Sisters in the Bay Area in 2003. 15% of the total revenue will be donated to API Chaya.
