Raquel Rosario Sánchez is a writer, campaigner and researcher from the Dominican Republic. She specialises in ending male violence against girls and women. All areas of her work centre around this goal.
Raquel is a columnist at Dominican newspaper El Caribe and a writer for Spanish platform Tribuna Feminista. She was a contributor for Canadian platform Feminist Current and is the co-founder of the British society Women Talk Back! Her work has been translated into French, Portuguese, German, Spanish, Italian and Korean.
On an international level, and aside from her work as an anti-violence advocate, Raquel campaigns for the protection and/or strengthening of sex-based rights. In recent years, she has campaigned for these protections in legislation and public policy initiatives in the Dominican Republic, the United States, Spain and the United Kingdom.
As a researcher, she is currently pursuing a PhD with the Centre for Gender and Violence Research at the University of Bristol. Her MA and PhD work focuses on men who pay for sex.
In her spare time, Raquel likes to spend time with her family or out in nature, preferably with animals around. She enjoys reading historical fiction or paranormal suspense novels to disconnect from the pressures of her work.
