I am campaigner on gender, economics and education.

I have worked in women’s rights and gender equality since 2005 and currently hold several different roles.

I am a freelance campaigner on gender equality working with schools, universities, local government and charities. I have worked on a variety of projects including providing a gender-lens to A-level English Literature core texts to supporting feminist groups within schools to run their own campaigns on sexual harassment.

 I have undertaken freelance projects for the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, University College London (UCL), London School of Economics and Political Science, the New Economy Organisers Network, the Fawcett Society and the Women’s Budget Group among others.

I appear regularly in the media discussing women’s rights and gender equality.

I am on the  Management Committee and Co Chair for Communications of the Women’s Budget Group, and have a particular interest in engaging feminist and community groups in local government spending.

Until 2017 I worked as Senior Policy and Campaigns Officer for the Fawcett Society. I am now a member of Fawcett Suffolk supporting Fawcett’s activities locally.
