Somer Brodribb

Somer Brodribb taught feminist theory and politics at Canadian Universities in the 1990s. Her experience of backlash is outlined in 'The Equity Franchise', CCLOW, Women's Education, 1996, and discussed by Dorothy Smith in her chapter 'Texts and Repression' in Writing the Social.

She now lives in England, and her short fiction has appeared with the Welsh publisher, Cinnamon Press, in Momaya 2011, and in The French Literary Review.
