This was the first article we did with Darla’s name on it.
If you’ve been following our other coverage, you’ll know that Darla has been an incredibly inspiring writer and a passionate advocate for women’s rights, including the right to access birth control.
But in the months since she announced her first book, Darla had some big changes to her writing style, which we wanted to share with you in this article.
First of all, we want to thank Darla for the time she’s taken to talk to us.
Darla, thank you for reading and being a part of the #DarlaLeighPittmanRodgers movement!
Darla (@darla_leigh) September 21, 2020 Darla was born in the US, but she moved to New Zealand when she was four years old.
She has always been passionate about her work and has always felt the need to push herself to do her best work.
She’s a proud feminist and has been a member of several feminist and anti-racist organisations, including ANU and the Australian National University.
She graduated from university in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature, with a minor in English composition.
After working in film and television for years, she moved on to writing about gender, sexuality and race for her personal blog, and has since become a prolific writer of nonfiction.
We hope you enjoy reading Darla as much as we do, and we hope to see you in person soon!
