Thanks for visiting Genders, Bodies, Politics

This site contains links to my academic writing, my journalism, my activism, and various bits of work-in-progress. It also houses my Feminism 101 lecture series and a suite of research resources for students and colleagues. Click here for my latest posts.

I’m currently Professor of Gender Studies at the University of Sussex, and have been at Sussex since 2005. I have been a scholar-activist in the movement against sexual violence at universities since almost the beginning of that time, and I co-wrote (with Isabel Young) the 2013 National Union of Students report That’s What She Said, on students’ experiences of ‘lad culture’ in higher education.

I have also written three books on the contemporary feminist movement, the first focused on efforts to get women into scientific and technical professions, the second focused on a range of issues including reproduction, sex work and sexual violence, and the third focused on sexual violence in particular. This latest book is called Me, Not You: the trouble with mainstream feminism and it came out in April 2020 from Manchester University Press.

I hope you enjoy your visit – if so, then do leave me a ‘like’ or a comment. You can also follow me on Twitter @alisonphipps.

Best wishes, Alison 💜
