MEET THE TEAM

Ellie Fielding

ELLIE MACIEIRA-FIELDING

Founder & Editor In Chief

“My sister once said that it only takes one experience for a woman to realise that she’s a feminist. Well, mine was in my first year of uni when my best friend got raped by a stranger on campus. I’ve never looked back since then. The first time I saw her after it happened, was almost 24 hours later, after she had been thoroughly harassed by doctors and the police. She looked at me and I looked at her and we didn’t say anything. She wasn’t wearing her own clothes and she had bruising and cuts on her neck and face. We just hugged and cried. But it was that moment of emotion-filled stillness that made me finally stop to ask myself the all-important questions: Why? Why her? Who would do this? Why would a strange man do this to a young girl? I then fell down a feminist rabbit hole and the further I fell the more issues I saw arise within the society we live in and a woman’s role in that society.

Supporting women is now my life mission and by my last year of university I clambered my way up to Feature Editor of my student paper and spent most of my time using that ever so small platform to share women’s stories, and I got pretty good at it too – I was fortunate enough to win a national journalism award for best feature (SPA).

This magazine is so very important to me because I can finally stand up and actually give women a meaningful platform. Call me crazy for trying to be the next Gloria Steinem, but I’ve got the bug, and I won’t stop until women have the rights we deserve. Until we can walk down the street at night without fear and until we can be treated with the same respect a man is treated with, I won’t stop.”

MOLLY HOPE

EXECUTIVE EDITOR

” To me, being a feminist is synonymous with finding my voice. I was always a feminist but I didn’t always have the words to express my frustrations, questions and opinions about how women are treated every day. As I grew up and my voice grew louder so did my feminist convictions.

In my second year of University I began to hear story after story of women who had experienced sexual assault on our University campus. It was never-ending. Until then, the fear of being attacked had been linked in mind, perhaps naively, with strangers lurking in the bushes in public. My University campus was my safe space, surrounded by my peers and familiar surroundings. I was outraged that this space too was being turned against women. The culture of sexual assault was rife and ingrained on campus and my feeling of helplessness was acute. After weeks of bubbling anger I realised that I couldn’t sit by and do nothing so I decided to start a campus-wide campaign protesting sexual assault on campus and asking the University to step up there prevention policies and support for survivors. This was my first taste of feminist activism and I never looked back. Taking action for the causes I believe in and trying to help achieve positive change for women is my passion.

So, after I left University I found myself searching for a way to continue using my voice for change. When Ellie reached out to me about a new feminist project called The New Feminist I knew I’d found the place where I could help other people find their feminist voice”
