Laura Bates is a successful feminist writer who was the brains behind an online collection of stories of sexism experienced by women around the world. By giving women a place to share their experiences, Laura hoped to raise the profile on the sheer scale of the sexism problem and prompt conversation on how to tackle it.
She was named as one of Britain’s most influential women in the BBC Woman’s Hour power list and is a frequent contributor to The Guardian. Her first book, Everyday Sexism, was published earlier this year.
