Heather Webb

Heather Webb (Women’s Reproductive Rights Program - WRRP): Heather earned her BA in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, in 2004, and then studied law at the New York Law School in 2008. After Law School, Heather practiced law for nearly three years in the corporate department of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. At the time of her fellowship, Heather was studying for a Master’s degree in international law at the New York University School of Law with a focus on international human rights law. While at NYU, Heather also worked as an Advocacy Volunteer for MADRE, and an Intern for the Legal Advocacy Program of CONNECT, a domestic violence organization. During the Fall semester, Heather served as a Legal Intern for Human Rights Watch, where she worked for the Disability Rights Researcher/Advocate. After her fellowship she wrote: “Through my fellowship with WRRP, I have learned so much about life from a very different perspective. I have found it amazing how the layers of understanding keep peeling away the longer I stay here and the more I experience in rural Nepal. This experience has been a life-changing one and has reaffirmed my commitment to a career advancing human rights.”



THE HEART OF A GIRL, THE WOMB OF A WOMAN, BOTH QUIETLY FALLING: AN OPINION-EDITORIAL IN THE KATHMANDU POST

04 Oct

One very thrilling part of my fellowship with WRRP for me was recently when an op-ed that I wrote was printed in The Kathmandu Post, a daily newspaper in the Kathmandu area.  The piece explores the connection between child marriage and uterine prolapse, which has been the focus of my work here in Nepal over the past few months.

Please click here to access the online version of my op-ed!  And of course feel free to leave your thoughts.
