About the Author

Joanna Jepson is an Anglican priest who was catapulted into the public consciousness when she challenged the abortion of a 28-week foetus for bilateral cleft lip and palate. As the first Chaplain to the London College of Fashion, Joanna created The Empty Hanger Project, a fashion workshop exploring themes of ambition, belonging, sustainability, identity and purpose.

She is a regular contributor to programmes including BBC One Big Questions, Sunday Morning Live, and BBC Radio 2 Pause for Thought, and has written op eds for the Times, the Telegraph and the Daily Mail.

Joanna is now based in Wells, Somerset.
