New Uplift Contributor – Lydia Harris

I’m very pleased to introduce our newest contributor, Lydia Harris, who wrote the latest feature ‘Hollaback Grrrl‘;

Lydia Harris

“I’m Lydia Harris.  I’m 21, a recent Goldsmiths graduate and living in London.  I’m involved in feminist activism and I’m especially interested in D.I.Y. culture, zines and riot grrrl.

I spend a lot of my time reading and writing words, listening to Sonic Youth and organising a feminist club night (with co-conspirators) called Girl Germs.  I also work in a second-hand bookshop and volunteer at the Feminist Library.   Reading that back, I guess it would be fair to say that I’m pretty into books!

I have a feminist blog called Swimsuit Issue.  I also write for BitchBuzz on a weekly basis and have been involved in editing the upcoming issue of Filament magazine.

I’m so pleased so be involved with the brilliant Uplift!”

To see more of Lydia’s writing, take a trip to her blog. And don’t forget to read her latest feature for Uplift, ‘Hollaback Grrrl‘!
