Programs and Research Intern

United States

Mónica Zumalacárregui Martínez joins Promundo-US as an intern in the Programs and Research department. Mónica arrives at the DC office with an interest in gender studies, and in particular, how to engage men in the fight for equality. Her previous work experience includes a nine-month internship at an immigration law firm tha dealt with family law and gender violence cases, as well as other criminal offenses. This experience helped her gain a broader understanding of the law and its enforcement. After finishing her Law Degree and her Master of Laws, she enrolled in the EMA Program, an interdisciplinary European Master in Human Rights and Democratization. She spent her first semester at the Global Campus in Venice and second semester at the University of Aristotle in Thessaloniki. During this time she wrote her thesis on involuntary soft sterilization for 'unfit mothers,' using a comparative approach between the American Eugenics of the 19th and 20th centuries and the Dutch proposal that was being discussed at the time. She found the topic of reproductive rights and the whole reproductive justice framework particularly interesting and is looking forward to engaging in further research on similar issues.
