Hannah McFaull

An East Londoner in San Francisco, Feminist, Punk, Political Science Geek

Hannah McFaull grew up in East London wishing she was Joe Strummer. Her love of punk and the music community is matched by her genuine geekery for election processes and activism. She is recently completed a MA in Political Science at San Francisco State University, specialising in gender and campaigns.
She currently works with people in women's prisons, as a staff member of Justice Now, and previously worked at the Howard League for Penal Reform as a campaigner and organiser. She was President of her Student Union and has volunteered for women's rights and anti-racist organisations throughout London.
She is an ardent West Ham fan, a tattoo collector and was the youngest person to win the Weakest Link.

How Reorganising a Record Collection Lead to Mockery and Ridicule

According to my serious record collector boyfriend, if you polled a thousand other vinyl geeks, 98% of them would laugh at me and the other 2% would pity my worldview. And before anyone asks, his record collection is alphabetical. Bish bash bosh. No messing about.
