Media Engagement

My research largely focuses on women in politics, the mainstream media, sexism, gendered double standards, intersectionality in electoral politics and queer theory.

I am also a feminist activist and have organised protests and vigils against all forms of violence towards women.

From May 2019, I am the regular federal political correspondent for Radio Adelaide.
