Full Biography

Jane Manning is a former prosecutor who now serves as Director of Advocacy of the New York City chapter of the National Organization for Women, focusing on their new initiative to combat drug-facilitated sexual assault.

She began her career as a prosecutor, specializing in cases of domestic violence, child abuse, and sex crimes. In private practice, she provided pro bono representation to a coalition of battered women’s organizations. She then joined the international human rights organization Equality Now, where she coordinated a successful campaign for a strong and comprehensive law against human trafficking in New York State, and helped write New York’s first anti-trafficking statute. She currently serves as Director of Advocacy of the National Organization for Women’s New York City chapter, where she has pursued successful campaigns to repeal the statute of limitations on rape cases and to criminalize strangulation attacks in New York State. Her commentary has appeared in the New York Times, on NPR, and in the Women’s Media Center Live broadcast with Robin Morgan.
