We are delighted to announce that Ilaria Michelis, doctoral candidate in Sociology, has won the Journal of Gender Studies Janet Blackman Prize for her paper, Contesting gender: young women and feminist generations in gender-based violence services.

The Prize celebrates scholarship on international feminist movements and trade unions/women in work.

Ilaria’s research focuses on intersectionality in feminist movements and organizations who work with survivors of violence against women and girls. Ilaria is also a gender-based violence practitioner with over ten years of experience, working primarily with refugee and migrant women and girls in East and Central Africa and the Middle East.
