What’s my Story?
founder & chair of feminist Pen
Feminist Pen is an online non-profit community founded by Chicago-based entrepreneur Vasanthan “Vas” Ramakrishnan. Vas was born and raised in a small town in South India by parents who were both teachers. Vas moved to the United States in 2016 to pursue his graduate school at Purdue. Graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Master’s degree and 2 advanced graduate certificates, Vas’s entrepreneurial journey began with him creating his own research lab – VasX Labs (previous TheVR lab).
Raised by a strong and independent mother, Vas has always been a strong supporter and advocate for women and feminism. Vas also stands with the LGBTQQIP2SAA+ community, BLM movement and is a strong endorser of pro-choice for women.
Vas strongly believes that gender equality is part of basic human rights and all individuals not just men and women should fight for it. After having endless debates on the importance of feminism resulting in a failure to highlight its importance within the men community Vas lived around, he decided to be the change he wanted to see around him.
He founded the cause to educate and promote the importance of feminism not just on a global level but also on a household level.
He believed that there was an ever-growing need for the creation of media channels and safe spaces for women to speak and tell their stories. Young women especially need to be educated and empowered because their empowerment can not only uplift them and their families but has the potential to bring an entire generation up to equal standards.
