Evelynne is a Programme Officer with the Communications team at ARROW, working predominantly on Publications. She holds a Masters degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science in Gender, Media and Culture Studies where she wrote her thesis on how social media has been used by LGBT audiences to influence the subversion of heteronormativity in mainstream television in the United States. She previously worked for three years as the Communications Officer at the All Women’s Action Society (AWAM), which gave her a strong grounding on issues surrounding feminism, women’s rights, and gender equality, with particular emphasis on the areas of gender-based violence and the politicisation of ethnicity and religion. During her time at AWAM, she was part of several project teams that worked to create spaces for youth in which they were able to come up with projects and creative solutions on issues surrounding gender equality.
