About Me

Dr Cristy Clark is an Australian legal academic, writer and co-founder of the Feminist Writers Festival.

She is based at Southern Cross University, where she teaches Human Rights, and Competition and Consumer Law. Her research and academic writing focuses on the intersection of human rights, neoliberalism, activism and the environment – with a particular emphasis on the human right to water.

Cristy’s PhD thesis (submitted in 2013) considered the status and realisation of the human right to water, with a special focus on the rights of the urban poor in Manila and Johannesburg.

Cristy also writes about law, social justice, feminism, motherhood and food politics for a variety of publications, including The Conversation, Kill Your Darlings Journal, Eureka Street, ABC The Drum, Overland, Essential Baby, The Wheeler Centre online, The Human Rights Defender, and The Big Issue. She has also spoken about these issues on radio, including ABC Outsiders, Radio National’s Life Matters, Beyond Zero Emissions, 2ser 107.3 and Gentile and the Jew.
