Rachel Hills is an author, producer, and communications professional who is dedicated to amplifying and incubating transformative feminist work, and bringing it beautifully into the mainstream.
Through her strategic communications consultancy Protagonistic, and her feminist founders community Powerbitches, Rachel loves supporting people and projects that are transforming culture and disrupting outdated power dynamics.
Rachel began her career as a journalist, writing about gender, politics, and culture for publications across 6 continents. Her work has been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Melbourne Age, The Guardian, The Atlantic, The New Republic, The New Inquiry, TIME, Buzzfeed, Fusion, New York Magazine, Marie Claire, Glamour, Jezebel, the Australian Literary Review and more.
In 2015, Rachel published her first book The Sex Myth, which Rebecca Traister called “a bracing and brave interrogation of contemporary assumptions about sex.” It was featured in more than 140 media outlets across the globe and named one of the best books of 2015 by The New York Times. She later co-developed The Sex Myth into a play and executively produced its sold out 2017 run in New York City. “The Sex Myth: A Devised Play” has since become an activist tool for consciousness raising performed on college campuses across the United States and internationally.
Rachel is based in New York City and frequently spends time in Sydney and London, but works with clients all over the world. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Simon and son Alexander, two feminist men she enjoys chatting with over brunch, and is currently working on a second book bringing an anti-oppression lens to motherhood.
