Pia recently completed her PhD at the Institute for Governance and Policy Analysis.  Her thesis ‘The political is personal: A case study of MamaBake’ focused on alternative forms of political participation, and in particular on the ways in which mothers participate in social forums outside of formal political institutions. Pia is passionate about inclusive notions of politics and feminism, and seeks to further our understanding of the forms of activism that are not easily measured or quantified.
