UltraViolet is hiring a Staff Accountant to help us create a real cost for sexism in the U.S.


Organizational Description

UltraViolet is a national organization that drives feminist cultural and political change. Through people power and strategic advocacy, we work to improve the lives of women and girls of all identities and backgrounds, and all people impacted by sexism, by dismantling the patriarchy and creating a cost for sexism. We work on a range of interconnected issues that impact the lives of women, including ending violence against women, economic security, reproductive rights, racial justice, and immigration.

Together with our 1.2 million members and movement partners, UltraViolet has helped shift our country’s culture around violence by creating public relations crises and financial consequences for high-profile perpetrators like Bill O'Reilly, R. Kelly, and Harvey Weinstein, and the corporations that enable and profit from them; organized nationwide to protect access to affordable reproductive healthcare for millions of people; advocated for justice for women and girls of color treated brutally and inhumanely by police and immigration enforcement; pressured major corporations like Netflix and Target to expand paid parental leave; and more.

UltraViolet is an organization run by women, immigrants, people of color, Indigenous women, and LGBTQ+ people. Sexism disparately impacts us and we strongly encourage people from these and other impacted communities to apply.
