Humphrey student Rincon interns at Global Rights for Women

Student in the Spotlight: Humphrey Student Completes Summer Internship Related to Women & Gender

Anna Rincon was one of the students awarded an internship grant from the Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy to complete a summer internship related to women and gender. Read more about her experience below:

This summer, Anna spent 11 weeks as a legal intern at Global Rights for Women, a Minneapolis-based NGO that collaborates with partners around the world to promote women’s human rights to equality and freedom from violence through legal reform and systems change. Anna attended a regional conference titled Making Laws Work to End Violence Against Women and Girls in Bucharest, Romania as part of her internship. The conference, organized primarily by Global Rights for Women, provided a platform for parliamentarians, NGOs, and government officials to share best practices in implementing violence against women laws in Eastern and Central Europe. As an intern, Anna’s main task was to prepare a post-conference report intended to provide useful information regarding the positive outcomes of the conference from her observations. Aside from her involvement in the regional conference, Anna conducted general research on domestic violence laws and laws addressing violence against women and girls through the rest of her summer with Global Rights for Women.
