Pauline Bullen

Pauline E. Bullen, PhD, currently teaches in the Sociology and Women and Gender Development Studies Department at the Women’s University in Africa, Harare, Zimbabwe. She is a scholar and activist who began publishing her writings in community newspapers in Toronto, Canada, in an effort to bring public attention to racism in the schools and its effects on Black students, female and male. A lover of literature and Art, Pauline finds ways to incorporate these into even those writings deemed to be “academic”. Her most recent work is aimed at increasing awareness of the need to address violence against girls and women in meaningful and permanent ways. Hip hop and graffiti are aspects of youth culture that Pauline finds expressive.
