Caroline Criado-Perez Awarded OBE

18th June 2015

Caroline was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s 2015 birthday honours list for her campaigning for women’s rights and representation.

Caroline is a freelance journalist and feminist campaigner. She writes predominantly on feminism, and other social justice issues. She also runs her own popular blog, Week Woman, and has spoken at numerous events on the topic of feminism, women’s voices, and social media, including running a workshop on social media at the latest Women’s Aid conference.

Her debut book Do It Like A Woman sheds light on the unrecognised stories of amazing women, who have been hidden from view by a public culture dominated by men. Criado-Perez shows that women are achieving success in a wide range of fields, all while battling the odds and expectations that are stacked against them. The book draws attention to the sportswomen, activists, game-changers, leaders and even the beer-drinkers who are re-defining what woman can do in the 21st century. Do It Like A Woman reinvents what it means to ‘do it’ while being female.
