My PhD research is titled ‘A Qualitative Exploration of Women’s Sexual Expression’. The study is underpinned by intersectional feminist debates on re-claiming sexuality and gender expression within patriarchal Western socio-political climates. Utilising feminist research principles and storytelling methods, the project aims to listen to and empower self-identifying women’s stories, experiences and perceptions. I currently work within the Sociology department at Sheffield Hallam University as a graduate teaching assistant. I am also a casual research assistant on a project which focuses on young people’s sexual health/well-being and access to sex education. I studied MRes Social Science, undertaking commissioned research for the Sheffield Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) Task Group as part of a research team. We designed and implemented a research framework to gather insight into local teacher’s readiness to implement the new RSE guidance, producing a report of findings in 2019. I also completed a dissertation titled ‘Advocating for a Comprehensive, Rights-Based Approach - A Mixed-Method Study of Teacher’s Readiness to Implement the New Statutory Relationships & Sex Education’.
