It is with deep sadness we share the passing of Ranjit Kaur, women’s rights warrior, author, sector leader who committed herself to social justice and equity. 

Ranjit was the first director to lead Rights of Women more than 20 years ago, establishing its reputation and sustainability as the formidable organisation it is today.

Ranjit has also been a trustee of WRC and part of the work which saw the founding of ROSA, the UK fund for women and girls.

An accomplished public speaker, Ranjit was able to hold the room whilst delivering the necessary critique of the state on behalf of women and girls.

Her achievements were great and many. We are grateful to have captured a small part of her legacy.

Ranjit can be seen and heard in Sisters Doing It For Themselves, a collection of recorded interviews to mark the 50th anniversary of the Women's Liberation Movement (WLM)

Her book of short stories - The Dancing Maharani - is a testament to her memorable storytelling and wit; it will soon be available from the WRC website.

She was a dear friend and colleague to so very many and a rock for me personally through some most challenging times.

Her integrity is surpassed by none.

Her determination and will were phenomenal. 

Her legacy lives on in so many.

RIP sister warrior queen.
