Recently I was lucky enough to have two pieces of my writing published. The first was for a popular Australian lifestyle website, Mamamia, entitled, “Seven things you probably don’t know about chronic fatigue syndrome.” I was very grateful for the opportunity to share my experience of ME/CFS with a wider audience, and it was well-received within the Aussie ME/CFS community.
The second was another political piece for Independent Australia, “What the ‘female’ traffic light response reveals about how society views women.” The city of Melbourne recently decided to replace a few traffic light symbols with figures wearing dresses, and
chaos outrage vitriol ensued. This article is my take on how we view the “feminine” in public spaces.
