Legal Fellow, Legal Equality and Access to Justice
As the Legal fellow working with the Legal Equality and Access to Justice team, Anastasia’s role is to contribute legal research and writing to advocate for the rights of women and girls and hold governments accountable to their legal obligations.
Anastasia holds a BA in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania and a JD from New York University School of Law, where she focused her studies on international human rights law. Prior to joining Equality Now, she interned at the Universal Rights Group, where she focused on advocating for women’s and girls’ rights at the Human Rights Council.
Her earliest feminist inspiration came from watching a speech by Malala Yousafzai when she was in high school. In that speech, she said, “I raise up my voice – not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard.” This quote continues to inspire her, along with the many women in her life who constantly impress her with their courage and perseverance.
Her home town is London, England, and she is currently based in New York City.
Outside work, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family, hosting game nights, and visiting new places.
