Biography

I am a feminist lawyer and philosophy graduate from Bogotá, Colombia. I completed my LLB, as well as a Bachelor in Philosophy from Universidad de Los Andes in Bogotá. I then pursued an LLM in Legal Theory (Distinction) from the London School of Economics and Political Science, supported by the LSE Graduate Support Scheme and Colfuturo. My DPhil research analyses the interaction between reproductive autonomy in human rights law and neoliberalism supervised by Professors Imogene Goold and Barbara Havlekova.  

After finishing my master’s degree, I spent more than three years working at Women’s Link Worldwide where I had the honour to represent brave victims of human rights violations. I co-litigated the first case on reproductive violence, a case regarding forced abortion and contraception within the FARC- ranks, upon the Special Jurisdiction of Peace in Colombia (JEP) and presented the same case upon the Commission for the Clarification of the Truth, Coexistence, and Non-Recurrence (CEV). I also co-drafted the most recent lawsuit to decriminalize abortion in Colombia as part of the "Causa Justa Movement" upon the Constitutional Court. Finally, I represented migrant women fleeing Venezuela due to the humanitarian crisis, which faced barriers accessing abortion upon the Inter-American System of Human Rights.  

I lectured a course in Feminist Legal Theory in Universidad de los Andes, and have been invited by other lecturers to teach classes on abortion and feminist philosophy in other universities in Colombia including Universidad del Externado, Universidad Sergio Arboleda, Universidad del Rosario in Bogotá, and Universidad del Norte in Barranquilla. I have also published opinion and academic articles regarding abortion, reproductive violence in armed conflicts, harassment in universities, and feminist mobilizations in international human rights law.
