About Jeeti Pooni

Jeeti Pooni broke her silence about being sexually abused as a young child when she realized that her cousin, who had raped her, was potentially abusing others in her extended family. Her outing of the veil of silence about sexual abuse has been a spark for much needed conversations, not only for the Indo-Canadian community but all communities.

Jeeti is a Motivational Speaker, a social changemaker and the author of The Silent Stoning. As the driving force behind The National Film Board of Canada documentary Because We Are Girls, Jeeti courageously shares her story.

Persevering through one of the longest-running sexual assault court cases in Canadian history has made Jeeti an even more determined advocate for change to the criminal justice system and passed-down cultural beliefs that shame and oppress women in her culture. She is a voice for others that have suffered abuse.

Jeeti lives in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada with her husband and two daughters.
