A room of her own

Sean Coughlan for BBC News Magazine

A homeless woman in London has been living in a car since last summer. But by writing a blog she has put herself in touch with an international audience…

…A woman becomes homeless, so she gets into her car and drives. Except she has nowhere to go – so she stays in the car, with all her possessions heaped in the back, sleeping in the front seats, parking in secluded streets. 

But this is the information age. And even though she doesn’t speak to anyone, she can go into a library where she can access the internet and write an online journal – a homelessness blog – which she uses to describe all her unspoken experiences and feelings. “
