Feminism and Folk, an awesome pairing, just like co-hosts Lucy and Pinky!
Our mission is to provide a platform for women’s voices and to further the conversations of both folk and feminism and explore how the two intersect. It's a platform for showcasing a range of women’s voices, stories and music. We plan for it to be fun and uplifting but also at its core, Thank Folk For Feminism will serve to encourage the folk scene to explore feminist issues and increase the range and diversity of women’s voices within the genre.
Thank Folk For Feminism believes in intersectional feminism, and seeks to create an inclusive platform to ensure the voices of marginalised groups are included such as women of colour, transgender women, disabled women, and women who may otherwise be excluded based on race, class, age, religion, education or any other experience are included in our conversations

"Like Lucy I'm an awful cook (and have been known to leave pans on the hob and walk away from them only to return to charcoal 3 hours later. I play roller derby and am an aspiring triathlete. In the summer you'll find me in a festival field, and I love uncovering new artists. If I didn't work in the violence against women and girls sector I'd be a painter/decorator and I also love building flat pack furniture - it's like lego for grown ups"
