Joanna speaks about academic freedom, higher education, feminism, the gender pay gap, children and families. She has spoken at universities, schools and public events throughout the UK and in the US.
Her speeches are well received. Her views are thoroughly substantiated from research and experience - but they are also provocative and challenging - a great way to engage audiences in discussion.
