Vanessa Olorenshaw

Vanessa Olorenshaw is a writer and blogger on issues relating to women and mothers. She is a feminist, a lawyer (once) and law reporter until she had her children. Not that you would know it: she’s busy at home raising her two children doing the hardest job she has ever done for no reward, no recognition and against all societal and political pressure to liberate herself from the ‘burdens’ of motherhood. And happy for it. Having been dragged on marches as a child and raised by trade union lefties, she suspects that activism is in her blood.

She blogs on Huffington Post and Politics of Mothering.

She is the author of The Politics of Mothering, a political Pamphlet.

She probably has snot on her sleeve.
