Gabrielle received a B.A. in Political Science and Peace and Justice Studies from Pace University and is currently pursuing a M.A. in International Affairs and Global Justice at Brooklyn College. She worked for various NGOs before joining Equality Now in 2019, including those that focused on international humanitarian disarmament, access to clean water and sanitation, and Haitian education initiatives.
Gabrielle’s parents taught her never to question her worth as a woman, but it became evident that this was a radical notion in a society inundated with deep embedded misogyny and sexist laws. Laws and norms set precedent for how society function and addressing systemic violence against women begins within our laws. We can't engage in any meaningful notion of equality until all women globally are recognized and protected under the law. She hopes our advocacy today allows future generations of women to know gender equality as an inherent right and not an ongoing struggle.
A favorite quote of hers reads, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest” and was written by Elie Wiesel. In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her family, trivia nights, and drinking too much coffee.
