PODCAST: Posie Parker — Standing for Women

Meghan Murphy speaks with Posie Parker about feminism, her campaign group, Standing for Women, and the upcoming week of activism she organized to challenge the silencing of women on social media, #womenstandup

Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull — aka Posie Parker — is the founder of Standing For Women, a global women’s rights campaign group, and the creator of Women Stand Up, a week of activism set to take place January 26-February 2.

Posie’s activism has never been without controversy. Her first action, a billboard with the definition of woman on it, was removed after trans activists labelled Standing for Women a “hate group.” In response to a complaint filed by Susie Green, CEO of Mermaids, the Yorkshire police interrogated Posie on account of tweets she posted in 2016 and 2017. In October, her personal information was posted online, including the address of her family home and videos of her children. Yet she has remained determined to keep fighting.

In this episode, I speak with Posie about her activism, the controversies surrounding her, and the upcoming week of action in Washington.
