Please Help Keep Us Going in 2015!

For over two years, our two-woman Feminist Job Board team has been working hard to bring you new feminist job openings on a daily basis. We don't make a profit or receive any kind of payment....we put in the time and energy because we are devoted to the cause. We work day jobs and spend our evenings and off hours working for Feminist Job Board. But like so many feminists and activists, working a double day is burning us out. We are struggling to keep providing this service, and we need your help

What we ask is that if you use the site, and you are happy with our service, you show your appreciation for the work we do by tipping us a few dollars. We added a new donate button to make this possible, and we really hope you will use it! We tip our bartenders and our baristas for their service... and put together, your tips would allow us to keep this service running. 

Thanks so much in advance for your love, and we hope to continue bringing you the best feminist jobs on offer in 2015!

Family Planning 2020 (FP2020) is a global partnership that supports the right of women and girls to decide, freely, and for themselves, whether, when, and how many children they want to have. FP2020 works with governments, civil society, multi-lateral organizations, donors, the private sector, and the research and development community to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020. FP2020 is an outcome of the 2012 London Summit on Family Planning where more than 20 governments made commitments to address the policy, financing, delivery and socio-cultural barriers to women accessing contraceptive information, services and supplies.

Legal Assistant for Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, Global Legal Program, Center for Reproductive Rights, New York, NY

Legal Assistant for Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean, Global Legal Program

Posted on: December 17, 2014
Application deadline: January 15, 2015
Posted by: Center for Reproductive Rights

Founded in 1992, the Center for Reproductive Rights (the Center) is a non-profit organization that promotes women's equality worldwide by securing reproductive rights in constitutional and international human rights law. Its mission is straightforward and ambitious: to advance reproductive health and rights as fundamental rights that all governments are legally obligated to protect, respect and fulfill. The Center is unmatched as a reproductive rights organization in its expertise in U.S. constitutional law, comparative law, and international human rights law.
The Center works across the globe on issues including access to life-saving obstetrics care, contraception, abortion services, and comprehensive sexuality information. In the U.S. Legal Program, the Center's preeminent litigation team has helped millions of women and their families by securing government funding for abortions, striking down abortion bans and other access restrictions, and protecting teens' access to emergency contraception and confidential reproductive healthcare services and information. The Center's complementary legislative advocacy initiatives and strategies have helped local advocates fight restrictive abortion legislation in over 25 states as well as promote reproductive rights and access to health care for millions of women. Through our human rights advocacy, the Center has been able to promote the integration and adoption of human rights principles in the domestic sphere while systematically norm-building and elevating local reproductive health issues within international treaty monitoring bodies and partner organizations.
The Center's Global Legal Program has brought groundbreaking cases before national courts, U.N. committees, and regional human rights bodies, and has built the legal capacity of women's rights advocates in over 50 countries. Our US Policy and Advocacy Program, based in Washington, DC, focuses on both U.S. domestic and foreign policy, providing leadership within the community of reproductive rights allies. In recent years, the Center has been able to dramatically expand its pro bono support from U.S. and non-U.S. based law firms, supporting not only the work of our U.S. Legal Program, but also our U.S. Policy and Advocacy Program (engaged in state and federal advocacy) and our Global Legal Program (engaged in advocacy and litigation before the United Nations and various regional and national bodies throughout the world).
The Legal Assistant for Asia and Latin America and the Caribbean will be joining the Center at a critical time for reproductive rights globally. As opponents of women's rights are mounting a scorched-earth campaign to turn back decades of hard-won progress, the Center is fighting back with short-, medium-, and long-term strategies, to reverse the erosion of reproductive rights protections across the U.S. and establish the right to affordable reproductive healthcare in the U.S. A key component of our strategic plan is to restore heightened protections for abortion rights, as promised to American women in the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade (1973).
