As a researcher and policy advisor, Felicity Ruby has written extensively on issues of security and secrecy. She advised Greenpeace International on nuclear policy and was the first staff member and coordinator of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear weapons (ICAN), which was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. While heading the UN Office of the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Felicity founded and coordinated the coalition of NGOs that drove the adoption of Security Council resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security, the first of several resolutions that saw the Security Council acknowledge that women existed and that war affected them differently.  Engaged soon after by the UN Development Fund for Women to join a team writing the book Women, War, Peace, she also generated gender profiles of all countries on the Security Council agenda. She worked as senior advisor for Scott Ludlam for his first 6 years in the Australian Senate, particularly focusing on internet policy, digital rights, and media reform.  She has written for Crikey, New Internationalist, Arena, Open Democracy, New Matilda, Digital Journalism, with her recent article ‘Silent Partners’ in Australian Foreign Affairs delving into the impacts of US bases in Australia. She was the co-editor of A Secret Australia: Revealed by the WikiLeaks Exposés.
