Female, Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, birthday 18th March
Joined August 2016

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.

How bad it can seem in the early hours - and yet, there is much good in my life. I am an optimist by nature who doesn't see much hope for the future. How to reconcile this? I appreciate your thoughts on this, as I appreciate all the actions of CC.

Spiral Dynamics is a useful way to think about values, and development. How might we apply it to changing the world?

Collaborating with others requires that we get the differences as well as what we share. And that means understanding ourselves....
