Sall Grover wanted to create a female-only app — she didn’t know that would make her a target

Today, women only spaces are highly controversial. Thanks to gender identity legislation, “female only” has become practically obsolete. When Sall Grover set out to create a female only social network and app, she was trying to help — offering women a space where they needn’t deal with the predatory, sexist, or harassing behaviour of men. She had no idea such an endeavour would make her a target.

In this episode, I speak with the founder & CEO of Giggle about her experience trying to get the app off the ground, and about a case brought against her on account of a complaint was lodged against her by a trans activist named Roxy Tickle, with regard to a tweet exchange between the two about the McIver’s Ladies Baths in Sydney and about the fact Roxy was kicked off of Giggle after breaking the rules on sex to gain access to the app.
