In 2007, Stacey Dooley was a 20-something working in fashion retail. She was selected to take part in the BBC series 'Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts' which saw her live and work alongside Indian factory workers making clothes for the UK High Street. This sparked her series of hugely popular investigations, establishing her as one of BBC3's most celebrated presenters. Through the course of her documentary making, Stacey has covered a variety of topics, from sex trafficking in Cambodia, to Yazidi women fighting back in Syria. At the core of her reporting are incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances - from sex workers in Russia, to victims of domestic violence in Honduras. Here, Stacey draws on her encounters with these brave and wonderful women, using their experiences as a vehicle to explore issues at the centre of female experience.
