Laura Bates

Laura Bates is the founder of The Everyday Sexism Project and author of the forthcoming book under the same name, 'Everyday Sexism', on-sale April 5. Bates launched the project at age 24 after a week in which she experienced several escalating incidents of harassment in order to force people to realize that sexism was, and still is, a real problem. Since she started the project in 2012, Bates has been credited with helping to spark a fourth wave of feminism.
