Claudia Lopes

Claudia Lopes is a feminist (proudly so) and women’s rights activist with a particular passion for advocating on issues related to violence against women. She works as a programme manager at the Southern Africa office of the Heinrich Böll Stiftung where she coordinates a project that seeks to enhance a deeper understanding of the drivers of gender based violence and aims to use this apperception to encourage a re-thinking of strategies to address it.
