Jessamy Gleeson on feminism

Jessamy Gleeson is a passionate feminist who recently submitted her PhD exploring the use of social media platforms for feminist activism. If you’re thinking she’s someone who’s clued up on feminism, you’d be right. She’s a seriously intelligent and generous human who also happens to produce Cherchez La Femme and is part of the Girls on Film Festival team and Slutwalk Melbourne. Jessamy promotes feminism that is inclusive, intersectional and empathetic. As she says, ‘Quite simply it’s understanding and the fighting for equality. But you can take that to mean so many different things and it’s something that I’m constantly being educated on and being schooled on, over and over again, is how equality looks to different people.’ Follow Jessamy on Twitter here: Check out Cherchez La Femme here:
