The Works Presents with John Kelly returns with a new ten-part series in which John meets key Irish figures from the arts - watch the latest episode here, via RTÉ Player.

From Clonakilty, in West Cork, Louise O’Neill is a writer best known for her Young Adult novels Only Ever Yours and Asking For It - books that began many a conversation around issues such as body image, shaming and consent.

The success of these books brought more than just prizes and sales however, it also turned Louise herself into something of a spokesperson on the various issues involved – her then publisher calling her a "feminist powerhouse" and an outspoken voice for change.
