Sarah Devereaux Hardimon
Prior to enrolling at Georgetown Law, Sarah worked at a non-profit dedicated to funding public health research, a domestic violence shelter in California, and the DC Coalition Against Domestic Violence. She continues to volunteer with local reproductive justice organizations and looks forward to returning to providing crisis support to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence.
Sarah is an alum of Pomona College, where she received a BA in Gender and Religious Studies. Her undergraduate thesis focused on the intersections of rape culture, theology, and white supremacy within contemporary white evangelicalism. While at Pomona, she responded to a sexual assault hotline, advocated for survivors in campus hearings, and worked with campus leadership to create trauma-informed policies relating to sexual and gender-based violence.
Sarah is excited to develop theoretical and technical skills to use in a career in civil-rights litigation. She is particularly interested in work that addresses gender-based civil rights violations in educational, workplace, and healthcare settings. Her goal is to use her Georgetown Law education to effectively advocate on behalf of individuals while also disincentivizing institutional misogyny and violence.
