Introducing Jane Chelliah, our guest blogger for March, who blogs on politics and feminist parenting
During February, our first guest blogger of 2016, Helen Reid, has been writing for us – a huge thank you to her!
Now as we move into March, we have a new guest blogger, Jane Chelliah. This is Jane in her own words:
Jane Chelliah is a 52-year-old Asian blogger who blogs on politics and feminist parenting. She became a feminist when her daughter was born because she did not want her little girl to grow up accepting cultural practices and the patriarchy as the norm. Jane works in the public sector, is chair of a charity for women with learning disabilities called Powerhouse, represents UN UK Women on the Gender Action for Peace & Security and practices intensive mothering even though her daughter is 16 years old.
This month, The F-Word will be featuring posts from different bloggers on feminist parenting, which some of Jane’s posts will be touching on.
Although we’ve selected all the monthly bloggers for the year, there are still lots of ways to contribute, with blog posts, features or reviews. Get in touch if you’re interested!
