About Poppy Davey

Hi, my name is Poppy and I am a University of Leeds Law Student. This undergraduate study has developed my passion of how the law applies to different groups of invididuals with a particular focus on the inadequate treatment of women. This interest led me to propose a self-defined research project which I am completing this summer (yay!). This surrounds how women who have been domestically abused from various social groups are treated differently by the criminal justice system. I am focusing on England and Wales since this is my jurisdiction. The social groups that I am considering are BAME, LGBTQ+ and disabled women and effectively contrasting this to the experiences of the white heterosexual woman. I am so excited to start this research and be able to inspire positive societal change through hopefully flagging up areas for further governmental emphasis. 

Alongiside this, I am so excited for next summer and completing my LIA. I can’t wait to meet and connect (whether it is in-person or virtially) with all the other scholars and develop my leadership skills. 

Outside of the scholarship, my hobbies include working out, running and finding fun ways to exercise alongside reading and journaling.
