Legal Fellow


Founded in 2005, the Global Justice Center is a team of creative feminists who use international law to achieve gender equality. We work towards a world where every person has full bodily and decisional autonomy and the power to access justice.

GJC’s legal team develops progressive international legal analyses to achieve feminist goals. We also conduct strategic advocacy in various venues, including, but not limited to, the UN, the US administration, national, and international courts. And because change must be driven by those most affected, we work in partnership with organizations around the world. 

GJC’s work ensures:

  • Abortion access is respected, protected, and fulfilled as a fundamental human right.

  • Gender shapes the prevention of and response to violence, including conflict and mass atrocities.

  • Multilateral systems integrate principles of feminism, inclusivity, and non-discrimination.
