Leah is a junior in the Elliott School of International Affairs concentrating in International Development and minoring in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. She is involved in several organizations at GW including the Model U.N. team and GW's chapter of She's the First. Leah will be researching how feminist movements in Cape Town have altered the South African Police Services' implementation of gender-based violence policy. While her question is still evolving, she is extremely passionate about women's rights and feminism. Leah is excited to study abroad in Cape Town, South Africa (spring 2020) where she will be conducting her research project.
