I’ve been a writer for close to 20 years now (which is obviously impossible to believe since I don't look a day over 21, right? RIGHT?!), and in that time I’ve had the privilege of meeting countless inspiring women doing all sorts of incredible things aimed at changing the world for the better.

Some of those women have been in government, or have been involved with large charities or international non-government organisations, and the work they have done and are doing is amazing. But the women who have had the greatest impact on me in my career, and in my life, are the 'grassroots goddesses'; the ladies who see a problem and decide to fix it, often alone and almost always with next-to-no resources.

They’re the girls who realise that big change begins with small steps. They are passionate, engaged women with a social conscience who know that real change is both possible and necessary. These women don’t simply sit back and say, ‘Someone ought to do something about that.’ They get in there, and they do it themselves.

My blog, Grassroots Goddess (grassrootsgoddess.com.au), was born out of my desire to tell these women’s stories, and shine a light on the wonderful things they’re accomplishing for others. So far that list includes Debra Tranter, the founder of the Oscar's Law anti-puppy farm campaign; Julie Dowse, co-founder of the AusCam Freedom Project, which helps young Cambodian women who have been involved in sex work and trafficking; and Rochelle Courtenay, creator of the Share the Dignity campaign, which provides sanitary products for homeless and vulnerable women - to name just a few!

Grassroots Goddess profiles inspiring Australian women of all ages, and from all walks of life, who are committed to effecting tangible social change and making a lasting difference at a grassroots level. It’s about about celebrating the one-woman bands who are getting sh*t done one step at a time, and living the changes they wish to see in the world.

Grassroots Goddess is truly a labour of love. I don't earn a cent from it, and often shirk the work I do get paid for in order to interview and write about these incredible women instead (ssshh, don't tell!) Currently I am able to post one new interview per week (four per month), but with your support I aim to increase this to around 10 per month.

Your generous support of Grassroots Goddess will allow me to continue giving much-needed and well-deserved exposure to even more women working tirelessly to create real, lasting social change. Thanks a squillion!
