Sister Outrider is the award winning blog of Claire Heuchan, a Black radical feminist from Scotland. In addition to winning the Best Blog category for the 2016 Write to End Violence Against Women Awards and being shortlisted for the Emma Humphreys Memorial Prize, Sister Outrider is accessed around the world and has been translated into French, Spanish, Portuguese, German, and Dutch.
Claire achieved an MLitt in Gender Studies at the University of Stirling, which informs her theorising alongside 25 years of experience inhabiting this world in a body that is Black and female.
On top of blogging as Sister Outrider, Claire has essays featured in a growing range of books – including the feminist anthology Nasty Women. Claire is currently writing her first book for children in collaboration with Nikesh Shukla: What is Race? Who are Racists? Why Does Skin Colour Matter? And Other Big Questions.
Claire is a proud contributor for AfterEllen, and has been published by platforms including the Guardian, OpenDemocracy 50:50, Glamour, Heat Street, Media Diversified, and Feminist Current. Her writing has resulted in Claire being invited to speak at conferences and symposiums around the UK.
In her spare time Claire volunteers at Glasgow Women’s Library and is a proud member of their organisational team for Collect:If, a networking group by and for creative women of colour in Scotland. In addition, Claire facilitates workshops on subjects including feminism, blogging, and lesbian culture.
