Mirella first realised she was a feminist at school and went on to study International Relations at University, reading about feminist theory and the abuses women face all over the world.

After University she worked with one of the UK’s largest domestic violence providers for just under 3 years in bid development. Currently she works for an international development consultancy developing proposals and bids to provide health programs for women and girls in developing countries.

Mirella is our Grants Manager at FiLiA and is always looking for new opportunities for funding. If you have any information you think would be useful you can contact her at grants@filia.org.uk
