I am a feminist and an aspiring academic in London, UK. This is my (infrequently updated) blog, featuring posts related to my Ph.D. research. Topics I am interested in include: the women’s movement in Kenya, especially the YWCA; histories of colonisation and missionary movements in East Africa; African Christianities and theologies; and women’s sexual and reproductive health and rights, particularly in relation to Christian ethics.

I am an Anthropologist by training, a housewife by choice, a voracious reader, a lover of fantasy fiction and Sci-Fi, a new mommy, an observer of human nature, a closet optimist and a cupcake enthusiast. I write about all of the above and anything that might strike my fancy :)

My blog is a mélange of personal narrative and creative non-fiction, and sometimes I use it to mull over issues I encounter as a female graduate student and instructor. But whatever topic has struck my fancy, I do tend to engage issues related to feminist concerns or to consider the impact of my position as a woman–as well as my privilege–on a particular experience or memory. I started a blog with the hope of engaging others in conversation about a variety of topics–sex, gender, feminism, doctoral studies, etc–so I would love responses. I update roughly every other week.

This blog collates stuff about Mary Wollstonecraft, best known as England’s first feminist. It’s a collection of resources, and pointers to other people’s work: video art in New York, a library talk in middle England, a philosophers’ conclave in Sweden, a book by a Turkish-French academic, an opera in New Zealand, an alleyway in Australia, an of course the statue campaign in London. I’ve written brief essays on the links between Wollstonecraft and those who drew on A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792) and her other books, often without naming her. I call these 'lost daughters (and sons)' and include Jane Austen and Prime Minister Gladstone. The blog describes the various places Wollstonecraft lived, particularly in London, and what those places have become now. Did you know she has four plaques in the metropolis, but not one building in which she lived or worked still stands? The blog is a one-stop Wollstonecraft shop
