Why “News with Nipples”? Well, isn’t that what news is about these days?
This blog is about the news and sexism. And other stuff, of course, because it’s a personal blog. It is not a women-only space, but aims to make discussion open to anyone who wants to take part. Unless you’re a dickhead. This blog has a “no dickheads” policy.
My name is Kim Powell and I’m a former journalist, now doing a doctorate on young people and political news. I read the paper every day. Most of my posts about news stories are about Fairfax, because I don’t read New Ltd papers.
I was a judge in the Walkley young journalist of the year awards (online category), a speaker at the 2010 Emerging Writers Festival, and won the 2011 Sydney Writers’ Centre best Australian commentary blog (now the Australian Writers’ Centre). Aside from my work as a journalist, I’ve been published in Talking Writing, the NSW Writers’ Centre anthology of the best Australian writing about writing. I am also one of the founders of The Tipsy Rabbit, a bi-monthly event about words and ideas. I love speaking at festivals and on panels (hint hint).

If you are a content agency or someone trying to flog something, do not contact me to see if I want to blog about your client’s product. This includes infographics. The answer will always be no. And you’ll get the same answer if you offer to pay me to flog your client’s product. I do not promote products on this blog.
This is my personal blog. It does not reflect the views of any organisation I work for, have previously worked for, or may work for in the future. I am a former journalist. Here, I comment on the news. Most people understand that difference. Unlike our friend in the comments below…
