Introducing myself and my journal: Petticoat Politics

About Me:

I'm a ranting third-wave feminist who grew up German in south New Zealand. I love hearing peoples' stories and I am an amateur photographer. I have a travel blog, but I wanted a place where I could focus more specifically on issues of gender and what kinds of offensive nonsense I see around me on a daily basis.

My Passions:
political philosophy, gender studies, photography, scuba, reading, train trips

My Challenges:
developing a better work ethic!

My Vision for the Future:
where gender is a fun identity game which is up to the individual

My Areas of Expertise:
conflict reconciliation, new media, political philosophy
