Caroline Criado-Perez is a writer, broadcaster and award-winning feminist campaigner. She is published across the major national media, most regularly for the New Statesman and The Guardian, and appears in both print and broadcast as a commentator on a wide range of topics, from refugees, to employment rights, to climate change.
Her first book, Do it Like a Woman, was published by Portobello in 2015. It was described as “a must-read” by the Sunday Independent and “rousing and immensely readable” by Good Housekeeping who selected it as their “best non-fiction”. Eleanor Marx hailed it in the New Statesman as “an extended and immersive piece of investigative journalism,” while Bridget Christie chose it as one of her books of the year in the Guardian, declaring that “young girls and women everywhere should have a copy.” She is currently working on her second book, which will be about the gender data gap.
Caroline lives in London with her small excitable dog, Poppy, has a degree in English language and literature from the University of Oxford, and is completing an MSc in Gender at LSE, focusing on behavioural and feminist economics. She was the 2013 recipient of the Liberty Human Rights Campaigner of the Year award, and was named OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours 2015.
