I was a member of the Spare Rib collective from 1977 to 1984, and then had a long association with the USA feminist newspaper off our backs. I have founded/ co-founded a few publications, such as Trouble and Strife and Assets magazine. Activism: as well as radical feminism I was involved in the anti-nuclear movement in the early 1980s and Transition Towns this century - 90s were a bit of a lost decade for me politically. Climate change and peak oil got me moving again, and I co-founded Transition Sydney in 2008. Since returning to England I've been involved in bits and pieces with Transition and community activism, but feel ready for some serious work now.
