Ellie O’Connell is a feminist teacher, activist and Education Co-ordinator for the Hatpins to Hashtags project. In partnership with T.I.G.E.R. (Teaching Individuals Gender Equality and Respect), she is responsible for researching and planning the Hatpins to Hashtags workshop series as well as building connections with schools, colleges and youth groups.
Ellie is a fully qualified Modern Languages teacher specialised in teaching the 16-19 age range and has worked with young people to explore intersectional feminisms in multicultural educational contexts.
Ellie is also studying an MA in Comparative Literatures and Cultures at the University of Bristol. She began the Translating Latin American Feminisms project which brings together translators of all levels, academics and activists to collectively research, translate and digitise the unexplored narratives of intersectional feminist activism within the archive.
She loves riot grrrl music, making things, cycling and gardening. She juggles all of this with long term health problems and would be very happy to discuss all things accessibility :)
