Annie Crowe | For Making a Feminist Difference in Community Activism

Annie Crowe is a tireless advocate for neurodivergent women in Australia. She founded and is the Chair of the Board for the not-for-profit, Eating Disorders Neurodiversity Australia (EDNA), and gives her time freely to the women who reach out to her every day for support.

After being the victim of a horrific car accident Annie was diagnosed as having both Autism Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Today, 80% of autistic women are still undiagnosed at the age of 18, due to the gender bias in diagnostic criteria. Annie’s mission is to break the stigma and raise awareness of the female expression of autism.
