Jesusa Ricoy

I’m a Spanish woman living in London for 25 years, an antenatal teacher, lecturer and what I term a matriactivist.

I’m also a mother to two boys and a girl.
My main focus politically within feminism is birth in general and obstetric violence in particular.
I have created an international movement to fight obstetric violence and I’m doing a documentary about birth.

I’m a feminist because (rephrasing another feminist) "I will not be compliant to my own dehumanisation".
I’m an activist because I cannot ignore injustice.

Therefore I'm volunteering for FiLiA because I believe in the power of our sisterhood.
