Imogen Howse is a journalist for NationalWorld, based in London. She writes a range of news, ‘explainer’, analysis, and feature pieces - specialising in women’s issues, social injustice, human rights around the globe, and politics.
She has reported extensively on police misconduct, abortion laws, gender equality, and women’s health. Imogen also frequently covers issues relating to asylum seekers and immigration, and has written on a series of housing campaigns - particularly those pertaining to the rights of disabled tenants, and safety issues post-Grenfell.
In the world of politics, Imogen writes on all the latest news - from strikes to the NHS. She also dissects government scandals and explains what has been said by ministers and high-profile politicians.
One of the pieces she is most proud of is an interview conducted with a sexual assault survivor, who spoke on her traumatic experience of reporting rape to the Met Police. Imogen is also proud of an article about one woman’s 17-year battle for an endometriosis diagnosis, and a piece exposing the plight of a leaseholder trapped in a flat with the same fire-risk cladding as Grenfell - who is facing a £30,000 removal bill.
