About Me

Julia Martins (She/Her)

I’m a final-year PhD candidate at King’s College London. My thesis is about the translation of “secrets of women” from Italian into French and English in the 16th and 17th centuries, and how the circulation of knowledge about sex and reproduction shaped the way the sexed body was understood.

My general research interests are gender history, history of medicine, and feminism. You can find me on WomenAlsoKnowHistory.com.

I’m a volunteer at the Vagina Museum. If you’d like to support the museum, please click here.

I also volunteer with The Vavengers, a charity fighting to end FGM. Please donate if you can.

I’m Brazilian and live in Hertfordshire with my husband, our daughter Lili and our cat Pancake.
