My work provides a feminist angle on mental, physical and sexual health – covering everything from abortion rights to work-life balance.

Gender inequality and sexism have huge health implications – from the staggering rate of male suicide, to the ongoing attacks on women’s sexual and reproductive rights. As a feminist health journalist, I’m particularly interested in those areas where feminism and wellbeing collide. I explore this in more detail on my women’s health blog, Hysterical Women.

This blog is a place to curate my recent work, profile the small business clients I love working with, and reflect in a more personal way on freelancing, mental health, and feminism. Expect ups, downs, recommendations, and occasional vulnerability. See my blog policy for more details.
