About Michelle

I am a full-time journalist, a part-time Masters student and a rape survivor rights activist.

From 9 to 5 I’m a court reporter for the Eastern Cape’s biggest newspaper. After hours I’m a budding photographer, Masters student and rape survivor rights activist.

Follow me here to read updates about my work, as well as opinion and analysis about my work and new projects aimed at improving systems that protect and assist survivors. I also write a great deal about rape culture and what we can do to dismantle it.

At work in Joza township, Grahamstown, in 2009.
