Women's Health Base

A look at women, the world and the web


As a freelance journalist specialising in science writing, this blog is designed to round up and comment on news and issues in the world of women’s health.

This blog started when as a student at Cardiff Journalism School I saw a gap in the market for reporting on some of the more political aspects of science.

The World Health Organisation’s 15andcounting.com blog have since described this blog as a blog “we love”:

‘Women’s Health Base is a blog by Hannah Flynn, a freelance journalist specialising in science. The author describes herself as “a former biologist and current feminist” and she covers the subjects of contraception, pregnancy, gynecological cancers, breast cancer, screening programmes, sexual health and education. There is also a series of “featurettes” entitled “Behind the label” which look at gaps in knowledge and controversies surrounding modern contraception.’

I have written for several publications, where I have written on numerous subjects including women’s health.

Publications I have worked on include:

Renewable Energy World

Power Engineering International

Cogneration and On-Site Power Production

Waste Management World

Middle East Energy


BBC Wildlife

Living Woods


Faculty of Life Sciences Newsletter

Student Direct

Southern Daily Echo

I was the editor of MADE, a course publication based at Cardiff Journalism School. (Issues can be found here.)
