She Matters was founded by Christina Moreno, an international lawyer who overcame poverty as a teenage mother in the United States. After seeing that female newcomers were not fully supported in their host countries, she quit her job as a lawyer and dedicated her life to supporting these extraordinary women with regaining control of their lives.
Prior to establishing She Matters, Christina worked as a legal associate and head of communications at an international legal partnership specialising in on-the-ground international humanitarian and human rights issues in conflict affected areas. She was also with HiiL Innovating Justice where she worked to improved access to justice across the globe.
Christina is a Thomson Reuter’s Foundation Trust Conference Scholar for her work on women’s empowerment, and was named among the Top 10 Persons to Watch for Justice Innovation in 2018 by HiiL’s Innovating Justice Accelerator.
