This fellowship program trains women's human rights lawyers from Africa who are committed to returning to their home countries in order to advance the status of women and girls. This fellowship program is sponsored by the Women’s Law and Public Policy Fellowship Program at the Law Center.
Georgetown hosts a broad range of programs that engage issues of gender in a global context.
Leading efforts include the Institute for Women, Peace and Security (Walsh School of Foreign Service); the International Women’s Human Rights Clinic (Law Center); and the Women’s Leadership Institute (McDonough School of Business). In the classroom, programs such as the Certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies give students the opportunity to explore gender dynamics across disciplines. Outside the classroom, Georgetown Women in International Affairs (GWIA) provides networks of resources for leadership development. Georgetown’s Jesuit identity and commitment to the global common good shape this engagement around gender issues and human rights more broadly.
