I'm Anne, adoptive Londoner, originally from Belgium
I came to London over 20 years ago, spent years travelling the world -
but landed back here, every time.
I love London more than any other place - well, most of the time!
It fascinated me as a kid when I started learning English and now, I call it home.
I’m a feminist activist & I’ve worked on women's rights issues for many years.
I'm anti-racist, acutely aware of my white privilege and always challenging injustice.
I'm passionate about equality and fighting for change.
I've spent much of my professional life as a reproductive justice campaigner,
with stints in the media - TV and radio, including Woman's Hour.
I studied a Gender MSc. My dissertation research,
'speaking up! speaking out!' - exploring women's voices and pro-choice activism in Ireland - was published in The Abortion Papers Ireland, vol. 2.
Now, I work as a women's rights advocate and I also write blogs.
In 2019, I started writing for Paris based La Guide de Voyage.
As I explored and researched feminist London, I thought
- hang on, with all this going on, why is there no actual space to connect it -
so, I founded London Feminista.
Let's do this!
