Clea, (she/her), Poetry Editor
I once accidentally trod on the paw of Helena Bonham-Carter’s dog on
Hampstead Heath – obviously a life highlight (dog unharmed).
What does intersectional feminism mean to you?
Intersectional feminism, to me, is encapsulated by a kaleidoscopic consideration
of feminist issues, and how these issues sit within broader society; it’s the
attempt to try to think and act with compassion, to be motivated by curiosity, and
to occupy feminist discourse and spaces with grace and humility. There is always
so much to be learned from others’ perspectives, experiences, and expertise.
What is your favourite thing about Clitbait?
The sense of community.
What inspires you?
Truly, I’m a slut for beauty (no shame!) – beauty in art, places, ideas, poetry,
perspectives. For me, anything which contributes to a kinder, more engaged, and
more beautiful world is worth elevating and celebrating. That – and a strong
sense of justice.
What things do you do outside Clitbait that you are proud of?
I’m proud of prioritising things and people that I love – my friends, my family,
dancing, and music.
A guilty feminist confession?

this empowerment – and so I would say represents a small feminist triumph for
