Nicole Pietsch is a writer and youth and women’s advocate living in Ontario, Canada.

Since 1998, Nicole has supported women and youth living with violence, including survivors of sexual violence. Most recently, she has worked with youth survivors of violence who are incarcerated, those living in an institutional setting, and Deaf youth.

Nicole has a particular interest in the ways in which social constructs of sex, age and race inform social policy, including medicine and law.

In 2010, her chapter, ”’Born’ Freaks, ‘Made’ Freaks, and Media Circuses” was included in an edited collection, Reena Virk: Critical Perspectives on a Canadian Murder.  Nicole’s written work has also appeared in York University’s Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering, the University of Toronto’s Women’s Health and Urban Life, and Canadian Woman Studies/les cahiers de la femme.
