Laura Bates

Laura Bates is a pioneering feminist, activist and bestselling author who she  has given voice to hundreds of thousands of women through her international Everyday Sexism Project, a website which “exists to catalogue instances of sexism experienced on a day to day basis” in order to show “the world that sexism does exist, it is faced by women everyday and it is a valid problem to discuss”. In her novel The Burning (2019) she deals with the ravaging effects of cyber-bullying and revenge porn by weaving together the stories of two girls, one accused of witchcraft way back in medieval times and a girl of today slut-shamed on the internet. It is a book to make you understand, a book to make you think and a battle cry for change.
