Lizzie Marvelly is well known as a Herald columnist and musician with albums, tours and hits spanning the globe. But it’s her innovative work as a champion of young women’s voices that has made Lizzie an even more admirable Kiwi. She started Villainesse.com, an online area for women’s voices to be heard, supported and respected. From there, she launched the #MyBodyMyTerms campaign to fight against revenge porn, sexual violence and to the press importance of consent. Her most recent triumph is her new book, That F Word: Growing up Feminist in Aotearoa. Lizzie Marvelly speaks to Angela Meyer about her new book and her fascinating body of work. Proudly supported by the Ministry for Women’s Suffrage 125 Community Fund. #Suffrage125.
