SUSTAINABLE SOIREES – EMPOWERING WOMEN
FROM SALT LAKE TO SOMALIA: THE STRUGGLE TO END PATRIARCHY AROUND THE GLOBE – WITH KATE KELLY
For July, we are very excited to welcome Kate Kelly as she leads a provocative discussion on women’s rights.
Kelly is a zealous advocate and passionate activist. She has a JD from American University Washington College of Law, the only law school in the world founded by, and for, women. Her career includes Ella Baker Fellow at the Center for Constitutional Rights; a law clerk at the Inter-American Court of Human Rights; a research assistant to the Chair of the United Nations Committee Against Torture in Geneva, Switzerland; a post-grad fellow at the Women’s Refugee Commission and an attorney at the RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights, Legal Advisor for Legal Action Worldwide working on sexual violence legislation in Somalia, and litigating before the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights; and she is currently the Strategic Advocacy & Policy Counsel at the Planned Parenthood Association of Utah.
In 2013 she founded a group called Ordain Women to advocate for gender equality in the Mormon Church. She was excommunicated from the church in June 2014 for speaking out against the fundamental exclusion of women, but her work for parity in religion continues unabated.
Sustainable Soirees is a monthly meetup to develop community and authenticity while encouraging more representation of women across all industries and in positions of leadership.
