Netra Thirumuruhan

Secretary, Board Director

Hello! My name is Netra Thirumuruhan and I am a board director and secretary at FEMchess. I am a sophomore at Mission San Jose High School. I used to play competitive chess during my elementary school years and in those years I noticed the gender inequality that plagues the chess field. It always confused me why there were so few girls in chess tournaments compared to boys, despite the game being so entertaining. Later I understood that many fields show this gender disproportion as well. I joined this like minded team to make a difference in the chess field and address this gender disproportionality. My goal is to help push an important narrative of women in chess and share my love for chess with other young girls.
