I’m a journalist, editor and women’s rights campaigner and have lived in London - the greatest city in the world - for all my adult life. I’ve written for everyone from Glamour, Grazia and The Stylist to the Independent, the i Paper, the BBC and the New Statesman. I specialise in telling the broad and varied stories of women, as well as covering human rights, social justice, politics, health and culture.
I became an anti-violence against women campaigner after I was raped in 2013. After my court case was scrapped days before I was due to take the stand, I waived my right to anonymity to act as an ambassador for Solace Women’s Aid in north London, later sitting on their policy steering group.
In 2015 I founded and ran a female empowerment and awareness campaign in India called #HerVoice, which saw 10 NGOs focused on protecting women and girls join forces. The campaign made international headlines and raised tens of thousands for the organisations that took part. Since 2016, I’ve overseen the media campaign for IC Change UK, the award-winning volunteer group that successfully passed a law to timetable the government to ratify the Istanbul Convention.
