About

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, 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 am dedicated to empowering young people to voice their own concerns about gender equality and work with Forward UK as a schools facilitator on Female Genital Mutilation.

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

I am also working as Senior Policy and Campaigns Officer for the Fawcett Society.
