Spectrum Women is a collection of essays published August 2018 by Jessica Kingsley in which 15 autistic women describe life from a female autistic perspective, and present empowering, helpful and supportive insights from their personal experience for fellow autistic women. In this special talk for Glasgow Skeptics, Dr Catriona Stewart will be presenting on her contribution to the book; her essay 'Diversity, Intersectionality, Gender and Feminism'.

About the Speaker:
Dr Stewart co-founded charity SWAN: Scottish Women’s Autism Network, which she chairs, in 2012 after completing her PhD thesis on girls with AS and anxiety. Her research was the driving force behind SWAN and the underpinning to her work with Scottish Autism developing their Right Click for Women and Girls online resource. She was an advisor and ‘expert’ to 3-year UK initiative, the National Autism Project, has presented at numerous national and international conferences, including 2 international conferences on women and gender studies, and delivers training and consultation services.

Dr Stewart currently works full-time for Scottish Autism as an advisor; one of her current work streams is a Scottish Government funded initiative delivered through Scottish Autism’s Right Click programme and SWAN in partnership. ‘Under Our Wing’ is a pilot one-year peer-mentoring training programme.
