Writing is a very important part of my life, and always will be. It is one of the ways I give expression to my ideas and promote my work, and though it can sometimes be a struggle, I derive a lot of satisfaction from it. I wrote my first major publication, No Turning Back: generations and the genderquake in 1994 during my first sabbatical from the BBC, and it is still one of my personal favourites. Following this, I became a regular contributor to national newspapers, as well as being offered a national column in the Comment section of The Independent in that year. Writing in some form has been an important part of my life since.

Over ten years on, I continue to write for a variety of different media - producing articles, chapters, short books and publications, as well as speeches, reports, and briefings for a wide variety of different audiences as well as doing my own creative writing. Visit the publications section of this site for more information. Since 2000, I have increasingly moved into multi-media and online publishing, as well as providing editing, writing and content generation services through Genderquake Limited.

On my current sabbatical, I have been nurturing a few of my own writing projects, which I hope will bear fruit in the months and years to come (though there are no guarantees!). I am also one of the founders of a dynamic new story telling site, www.hagsharlotsheroines.com launched with my sister, Laura, who is the prime mover, and a friend Becky which I hope many of you will visit and join.

One reason why Wilkinson's ideas have achieved such clout is that she has a knack for packaging and marketing them in terms that people can understand. Her writing is populist, filled with catchy labels and eye-opening anecdotes
