Rights Now! Policy Fellow
Ane Mathieson

Ane Mathieson is Legal Momentum’s Rights Now! Policy Fellow. In collaboration with Peer Educators, Ane is developing curricula and materials on educational equity, students’ legal rights, and the impact that domestic violence, sexual assault, and dating violence have on young women’s educational trajectories. The curricula seek to empower young women of color to be their own advocates and to assert their rights to equity.

Ane has researched gender hierarchy and male violence for over a decade. Her research and activism inspired her to co-found We Fight Back, a boxing empowerment program for women who have survived sexual violence. She is dedicated to improving parental leave policies, closing the gender wage gap, and ending violence against women and girls. Prior to the Fellowship, Ane worked on commercial sexual exploitation policy at The Organization for Prostitution Survivors. As a 2012 Fulbright Fellow, she researched global prostitution policy in Sweden. In 2014, she published “Prostitution Policy: Legalization, Decriminalization and the Nordic Model” in the Journal for Social Justice. In 2015, Ane completed a research internship at the Coalition against Trafficking in Women & Children-Asia Pacific (CATW-AP) in Manila, Philippines.

Ane holds a Master of Social Work with a concentration in Public Policy Practice and Administration from the University of Washington.
