Ursula Amaranta Martinez Barrueta

Mexico

Ursula Amaranta Martínez Barrueta is from Iguala de la Independencia, Guerrero, Mexico. She is a litigation assistant and researcher at Organization Tojil, as well as a columnist for the Mexican magazine “Foro Jurídico”. In 2019 she was part of the Youth Parliament of Guerrero where she chaired the Gender Commission. Her greatest passion is that, through the law and as a feminist lawyer, she can be part of proposals and solutions for violence against women and their realities. Her “First Aid Kit” seeks to provide comprehensive guidance to women and their support networks when they face situations that put them at risk, not only from the legal side but also from the psychological side. From Tojil, she has the opportunity to be part of the design of litigation strategies and public policies against corruption and violence against women. During the health emergency in Mexico, she was part of the “Susana Vigilancia” team, which monitored the plans and programs implemented by Tojil and Transparencia Mexicana that aimed to address the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ursula was selected as a participant in the 2021 Voces Que Inspiran.
