Mónica Ramírez, who helped ignite the #TimesUp movement, discusses strategies for fighting gender-based sexual harassment and achieving gender equity across industries.
Mónica Ramírez is a co-founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, or the National Farmworker Women's Alliance, and she created the first legal project in the U.S. focused on representing farmworker women in legal cases involving sexual harassment and other forms of gender discrimination. She has dedicated her life to ending gender-based violence and unjust treatment in the workplace, along with achieving gender justice, especially for the most marginalized women, including farmworkers, Latinas, and immigrants.
Mónica also has a long history of promoting women’s leadership and political power. She is the former director of Latinas Represent, the only national, non-partisan initiative to help Latinas secure public leadership positions. She is the founder of several major initiatives, organizations and projects, including Esperanza: The Immigrant Women’s Legal Initiative of the Southern Poverty Law Center, The Bandana Project, and led 2017's Latina Equal Pay campaign which raised awareness about the gender pay gap among Latina workers and successfully reached over 274 million people. In November 2017, she authored a letter on behalf of Alianza members that was published in TIME magazine, which went viral and helped spark the TIME’S UP movement.
Mónica rallies people from all walks of life to promote gender equity in the workplace and in politics – while inspiring audiences to find their own voice, forge their own leadership journey, and use their power to make change.Gender Equity Activist, Civil Rights Attorney & Co-Founder of Alianza Nacional de Campesinas
