Maya Oppenheim is The Independent's Women's Correspondent and the only Women's Correspondent at a UK news outlet. Since starting the role in 2018, she has reported extensively on the themes explored in her book - carrying out interviews with survivors who have first-hand experience of the issues, experts, campaigners, and frontline workers. As well as writing news, features and investigative stories, she writes and curates a women-focused weekly newsletter for The Independent titled Independent Women. Topics Maya had long been writing about previously deemed more marginal have climbed up the political and news agenda, with her helping set the agenda in this area. Prior to working as the Women's Correspondent, she worked on The Independent's News Desk and People Desk, after working as a freelance journalist for Vice, New Statesman, i-D magazine, Buzzfeed, Dazed & Confused, and other publications.
