holly (she/her)

public relations lead & editor

a loud and foul mouthed, aggressively opinionated feminist, apparently. the feminist part is correct. actually just a young woman who cares about choice, freedom and equality for all. and when you’re passionate about these things, you do have to make a bit of noise to be heard. will always have a little fun with it along the way as well.

an authentic Northern girl currently working in and having completed an apprenticeship in the Legal sector. bit of a gym rat who isn’t afraid to deadlift more than her own bodyweight. particularly interested in Psychology, Law and the Criminal Justice System. dreams about travelling as much of the world as possible, and taking opportunities whenever she can. sick of the patriarchy. passionate about mental health, animals and achieving equality for all.

brogan (she/her)

A girl who is here for all things equality, and no bad vibes. Did a degree in philosophy which was basically studying how to debate, along with philosophy of race and gender. Will happily shut down any BS, and enjoy doing so. Absolutely hates mansplaining and assumptions based on gender roles. Probably spends too much time on tik tok.

development studies graduate from the Australian National University. Currently studying international development at the University of Edinburgh and has just finished her internship at UN women. worked with grassroots organizations to achieve gender equality in Spain and Australia. passion for changing the world started as a kid as violence against children made her angry. believes in the power of journalism in informing citizens and initiating change. loves travelling, fashion and taking super long naps.
