Angela Maria Escobar Vasquez
Angela is one of the national coordinators of the Network of Women Victims and Professionals in Colombia. She is a survivor of sexual violence by the paramilitaries, and now she is a defender of women's rights. She provides support to survivors of sexual violence and conducts workshops on sexual violence prevention. She was in the victim's delegation to the peace negotiation table, and her role was crucial to include sexual abuse in the peace agreement. Since 2018, she has been involved as a national coordinator in Global Network of Victims and Survivors to End Wartime Sexual Violence (SEMA), representing Colombia and the need for reparations at several international events. She also supported the organisation of a conference and study trip, inviting several SEMA members to Colombia, to collectively conduct advocacy and carry out various activities related to survivor rights.
