Fenella is a teacher and researcher in development, gender, NGOs and trade unions, currently working at Ruskin College (Oxford). A life-long feminist and activist, Fenella’s background is in women's movements, working internationally. She worked with women’s organisations first in Canada and then in Uganda (with Isis-WICCE) in the 1990s. Since then, she has worked extensively with NGOs and women’s organisations both in the UK and internationally. Fenella’s work has always spanned both academic and practitioner spaces, and she continues to pursue opportunities to bridge the gap between these two worlds through her research, teaching and activism. Fenella holds a PhD in Gender and Development, and has 20 years’ experience working on and with development NGOs and women’s organisations and movements at national and international levels. She has published widely, and is the co-editor (with Tina Wallace) of Aid, NGOs and the Realities of Women’s Lives (Practical Action Publishing, 2013), as well as presenting at conferences and workshops both in the UK and internationally. She is also a Research Associate at the International Gender Studies centre, based at Lady Margaret Hall (University of Oxford), and co-convenes the Gender Policy and Practice study group in the Development Studies Association.
