About Virginia López Calvo

Virginia is based in Madrid and travels across the different regions of the Spanish state to ensure the various priorities and sensitivities are factored into WeMove.EU's campaigns. She is a campaigner at her peak performance when weaving trans-European and intercontinental networks, particularly those working in the intersection of gender, economic and environmental justice. A feminist advocate for more than a decade, Virginia has worked on decriminalisation of abortion, women’s participation in macroeconomic policy-making and trade justice. When not doing politics she plays baglama and dances forró.
