Dr Charlotte Proudman was invited as a Visiting Scholar by Professor David Oppenheimer organiser of the Berkeley Comparative Equality & Anti-discrimination Law Study Group to spend time at Berkeley Law School, the University of California. Charlotte is currently a Junior Research Fellow at Queens’ College, Cambridge where she researches Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) law and policy in the UK. At Berkeley, Charlotte gave a lecture on “FGM: Can Criminalisation Eradicate the Cruel Cut?” on 16th April 2019. She had the opportunity to sit with several family law judges in California observing family law court hearings. In addition, Charlotte met with the Title XI co-ordinator to learn more about how sexual violence is tackled on campus. Charlotte is grateful to Berkeley Law School for hosting her and facilitating a multidisciplinary visit. Charlotte is looking forward to speaking at the Berkeley Comparative Equality & Anti-discrimination Law Conference in Sweden in June 2019. She will present her research on FGM law and policy and chair a panel of academics speaking about sexual harassment in the workplace.
