Maura Reilly is a research fellow and frequent Medium contributor at RepresentWomen. Born and raised in DC, she decided to stay close to home and attend the University of St. Andrews in Scotland. After failing to find a European prince to marry, she is back in DC and hoping to put her passion for feminism and penchant for research to good use, focusing on the impact of gender parity internationally. Upon completing a successful research internship with RepresentWomen in the fall of 2019, Maura accepted a nine-month fellowship to continue her work in 2020. Stay tuned for more from Maura on indigenous women's representation, women in Brexit, and some very witty blog titles.
