Biography

Pamela Zambrano holds a Bachelor of Laws (with honors) from the Universidad Iberoamericana Puebla, Mexico. As a law student, she won the Human Rights Competition Sergio Garcia Ramirez organized by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (2013). During her career, Pamela has collaborated with government agencies, civil society organizations and international institutions. As a law student, she was intern at the Gender and Social Violence Observatory of Puebla where she supported the implementation of public policies to prevent femicide in Puebla. Besides, she assisted victims of human rights violations in the Inter-American System of Human Rights on subjects related with due criminal process (first, while conducting a fellowship in the Inter-American Commission in Washington D.C. in 2015 and second, as a volunteer in the Inter-American Court in Costa Rica in 2016). Also, from 2017 to 2019 she coordinated projects at the Institute of Criminal Procedural Justice aiming to monitor the implementation of the Juvenile Criminal Justice System in Mexico and reduce youth incarceration. Currently, she is working on the women’s rights situation in Mexico at her own organization, the Feminist Circle of Legal Analysis, an organization focused on women empowerment through legal tools in order to address gender-based discrimination. There, she represents (pro bono) women who have been victims of based-gender discrimination in the Mexican courts and international human rights organizations.
