Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2018
Fundación Niñas Valientes
This description of Nerea De Ugarte's work was prepared when Nerea De Ugarte was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2018.
Nerea is fighting mental health complications that persist from outdated gender norms and stereotypes by changing the culture that creates them instead of simply addressing the symptoms that appear in individual people. She is challenging these pressures on various fronts: educating girls from a young age, influencing public policy, and demanding higher standards for advertisements portraying women.
