I have an essay in a new book, published this week.
Know Your Place: Essays on the Working Class has been in the works for a while. A collection of essays about working class culture and life, my contribution is concerned with the notion of invisible women, and a very specific group of such women.
The Housework Issue (The Other One) came from a short piece I wrote for the first issue of I Hope You Like Feminist Rants, published two years ago. In it, I wrote about ‘invisible women’, those who work as cleaners, and how they are treated both within the work environment, and outside of it.
I wanted to explore the subject further, as I got such a positive initial response, so when Dead Ink Books put the call out for pitches in summer 2016, I thought it would be an ideal fit.
Luckily, Dead Ink felt the same way.
I’m very happy to have my work published alongside so many wonderful writers, who are listed here.
