Marthe Scheepens

Marthe has bachelor's degrees in Health Sciences (University of Maastricht) and Interdisciplinary Social Sciences (University of Amsterdam). She is a second-year student in the Research Master Social Sciences programme of the University of Amsterdam. With a major in Sociology, she is interested in inequality and especially passionate about gender inequality. Currently, she is doing fieldwork for her thesis focusing on the gendered moral rationalities of South African mothers, using feminist theories with cultural sociology and intersectionality. At the GHJRU she is assisting with a project that examines the impact of community empowerment on access to sexual and reproductive health and rights services for sex workers and gender minorities in South Africa. Marthe also plans to help with the organisation and execution of focus groups that concentrate on the perspectives of children from Lavender Hill and their relationships with grown-up relatives and other adults.
