UntitledMy name is Scarlett Harris and I’m a freelance writer and blogger living at home with the ‘rents (well, one ‘rent) in country Victoria, Australia while I save to go on sabbatical in New York in 2016.

What was first entitled The Early Bird Catches the Worm, I envisioned this blog to be a cutting edge commentary on books, magazines and pop culture, with the title being somewhat wishful thinking on my part. The now-dormant Girl with a Satchel was my inspiration.

As my politics started to evolve, so too did the blog, becoming more of a place for me to discuss pop culture, society and femin- and other -isms.

I knew I wanted to change the focus of the blog and have it better reflect my “brand” (whatever that is!) and The Scarlett Woman as we know it came to life early in 2014 with the help of Zoe Meagher, who’s been doing artwork for this blog since 2011.

Over the past few years I’ve been focusing more on freelance pursuits so the frequency of posts has decreased. You can check out said freelance work, for publications such as Junkee, TheVine, The Lifted Brow and MamaMia, below.

If you’d like to read more frequent (but less in-depth) musings on femin- and other -isms, follow me on Twitter why don’t you?
