Picture2. Priti (1)

Priti Prabhughate is a researcher with over 15 years of experience in conducting gender research. Her prior research focuses on how violence is perpetrated, sustained, and experienced by women not only in intimate relationships, but also through the various institutions that they interact with. Her research has focused on understanding the nature, experience, and impact of violence in schools, workplace and in multi-generational families. Priti has looked at the long-term consequences of violence from a life-course perspective. Her work has for example, focused on the long term impact of violence faced by non-binary and gender non-confirming people across their life course that sexual violence and discrimination in schools and within families has on their lives. Priti has a keen interest in unearthing how social and gender norms influence experiences of violence, the role these play in determining women’s agency and evaluating programs that are addressing intimate partner violence. Through her work primarily in South Asia, Priti has observed the interventions that address violence and challenge status quo, often experience ‘backlash’ from the community and family  – this is an area of work that she is personally interested in exploring further. Priti is passionate about how evidence in translated into programs and how policies can be influenced by evidence to improve outcomes. Priti is a Social Worker by training. She earned her Master’s in Social Work from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai and her PhD from Jane Addams College of Social Work, University of Illinois at Chicago. Before she joined the SVRI, Priti worked as the Global Lead for Impact and Evidence at the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
