Eva Pintado

Eva joined FiLiA at the beginning of 2017, focusing on the relationship between women and the environment. She grew up in southern Spain where she gained her strong passion for the environment and became aware of the great gender inequality and confined gender roles that rule society. After living in Mexico and Italy, Eva moved to the UK in 2011 where she works on tropical forest conservation and climate change projects. She is particularly interested in the empowerment of women, especially those at risk of social exclusion and poverty; the role of women in the management of environmental resources, conservation and climate change; prostitution; and gender roles and stereotypes.
