As a journalist, I want to make standout, original stories about women, children and gender. I feel that these topics are often relegated to the bottom of TV bulletins, or not covered at all.
Domestic violence, female genital mutilation, trafficking, prostitution, adoption and the care system – these are just some of the topics that I covered while in the UK.
In Thailand, I spent many years investigating the surrogacy industry in Asia. We revealed that some Australians rejected their surrogate babies because the child was disabled, or the ‘wrong’ sex.
My work in South East Asia focused on women making a difference, from Cambodian women fighting mass eviction, to Vietnamese bloggers criticising their political regime.
