Daisy Kay

2021 Fellow

While studying Philosophy at Trinity College Dublin, Daisy focused on the systemic inequalities that women experience. Motivated by women’s injustices in two high-profile Irish rape trials and the 2018 Irish abortion referendum, she wrote her dissertation on the gendered biases that exist in criminal justice systems and how these are exacerbated in marginalised groups.

She went on to do a Master’s at King’s College London, where she focused on the social impact of sexual violence and how this plays out in the media and criminal justice system. Alongside her studies, she volunteered with UN Women, and since then, she has worked in the environmental sector.

During Year Here she is committed to creating sustainable solutions which rehabilitate those who have been negatively impacted by the criminal justice system. She also recognises the urgency of generating solutions which aid those who have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19.
