FEMINIST LAW FIRM
Tobaruela Abogadas was founded on July 1, 1992 as an independent feminist law firm in Seville. The office was founded as a response to the social and legal invisibility of the victims of gender-based violence (GBV) of that time, with the aim of defending the rights of women and their families. Our methodology promotes the importance of the victim’s rights, particularly of self-determination in taking any legal action.
This office bases its structure on two fundamental pillars: awareness and resilience. On the one hand, the education and active training of both legal professionals and the general public and ourselves through conferences, courses and university internships. On the other hand, the continuous and progressive fight for human rights through a critical, inclusive and intersectional gender perspective.
