Ruth Wykes is a writer, editor, feminist and a passionate human rights activist. Ruth's interest in justice and concern for the most vulnerable people in society grew from her work with a community-based organisation which brought her into contact with many marginalised groups in society: prisoners, sex workers, drug users and other people whose lives fell through the cracks. Ruth's previous book, Women Who Kill (co-authored with Lindy Cameron) was published by Five Mile Press in 2011. Ruth lives and works in the Mornington Peninsula.
