As November begins (how is it already November?) I’d like to welcome Jennifer Evans, our guest blogger this month. Here’s her introduction in her own words.
Jennifer is thirty years old and lives in the West Midlands with her wife, their two young labradors and a twenty-something tabby cat. Having moved around a little over the past few years Jennifer finally discovered her love for writing when living in rural Herefordshire in 2014. There she started writing a blog and for several online publications. Her writing focuses strongly, as do her ethics and values, on social inequalities and feminist issues alongside documenting her journey of recovery following her mother’s death in 2013.
A graduate of the University of Derby, Jennifer is an experienced youth and community worker, currently working with young people living in residential care settings. Her previous work includes working for many years in a young person’s drug and alcohol team and also working for an affiliated branch of Women’s Aid, supporting women and children in refuge environments. Contributing to ending violence against women is something that is particularly important to Jennifer.
A house move and a new job this summer have meant that Jennifer has had far less time for writing than usual. She is thrilled to have the opportunity to be a guest blogger for The F-Word and is itching to get started! Connect with Jennifer @todaysfeminist.
Thanks, Jennifer, we look forward to reading your posts this month!
