Author: Rev. Susie Courtault

Susie trained as a social worker in France and worked there before returning-to London to take up various posts in mental health and emergency provision. Her training taught her to see issues through a feminist lens which she continued when studying for her BA and MA in Art History and came to understand the concept of ‘the male gaze’ in art. Approaching the end of a long career in social work and therapy she was called to train as an Interfaith Minister in 2012 and she takes rites of passages and conducts services at Unitarian churches in Brighton and the south east. She believes the time has come for men and women to come together in equal stewardship of our planet and for respect for each other to replace violence. Feminism can help not hinder this process as the challenge to patriarchy will ultimately help mankind to heal.
