Picture of Stevie JepsonAfter completing the MA in Politics (by thesis) at the end of 2015, Stevie Jepson took up a position as graduate policy advisor at the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment as part of its 18 month policy graduate programme. She is currently working in the radio spectrum management team. In addition, Stevie received a significant mention in the recap of the Trans/forming Feminisms Conference in Dunedin (23-25 November 2015) by the Women’s Studies Association. Longtime feminist researcher and writer, Sylvia Baynes, wrote: “A presentation that impressed me was Stevie Jepson’s study of Shulamith Firestone’s 1970 book The Dialectic of Sex and other feminist utopias. I rejoiced in this tribute to a largely forgotten, intellectual feminist writer.” (in their Newsletter 36(3) April 2016). While at the University of Otago Stevie was involved in organising campus feminist groups and events, and continues to be active in Wellington’s feminist organisations. For example, Stevie was recently appointed to the executive of the Abortion Law Reform Association of New Zealand (ALRANZ).
