Little Miss Homeless
A short story detailing a homeless woman’s journey written and illustrated by Harriet Earle-Brown. Harriet is currently doing her PHD at University of Exeter, her research focuses on homeless women and so the inspiration for this book came from there.
The story outlines Little Miss Homeless’ journey into homelessness and the importance of gendered approach to service provision in the homelessness sector. Harriet’s goal with the book was to bring attention to the issues faced by homeless women in a way that is accessible and engaging to the public.
Harriet said in an interview with The Tab: “The main takeaway is that homeless women exist and that they face particular issues which we need to address. Raising awareness of these issues is important in order to ensure we can better support this vulnerable group in the future.”
