Bio

“It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.” - Audre Lorde

I want to bring taboo topics out into the open, connect people across their differences and work for equal rights and opportunities regardless of peoples’ backgrounds. I do so through storytelling, writing, and by opening up discussion about difficult and sensitive topics. My experience is based in multicultural, international settings doing qualitative research and translating results into action. My main interests meet at the crossroads of gender, sexuality, multiculturalism, feminism and the relation between majority and minority groups. Grateful for the life-changing theories and critical lenses I obtained while studying feminist philosophy, anthropology and sociology in the US, Australia, and the Netherlands, I continue to address issues by writing for Dutch online magazines. As project manager for The Female Health Company I am helping to make available the FC2 Female Condom a dual-protection method that provides women full control over their own protection.
