Meet the Clitbait Team: an interview with Robyn Barclay, Poetry Editor

Name, Pronouns and Role:

Robyn Barclay (she/her), Poetry Editor

Fun Fact:

My favourite film (completely un-ironically) is The Lego Batman Movie.

What does intersectional feminism mean to you?

For me, intersectional feminism is about making sure a wide variety of voices are heard, and giving everyone the space to share their experiences, so that we can fix society’s issues in a way that does not only advantage a few, but instead uplifts everyone. 

What is your favourite thing about Clitbait?

I really love the community that Clitbait has created, it’s a wonderful creative environment.

What inspires you?

I get a lot out of seeing other people’s art, it’s beautiful to see how others express themselves.

What things do you do outside Clitbait that you are proud of?

I wrote a book earlier this year!

A guilty feminist confession

This is very specific but I absolutely love the part in the In the Heights movie musical when Anthony Ramos sings “don’t make me laugh I’ve been trying all night/ you’ve been shaking your ass for like half of the heights.”

A personal feminist triumph?

I’m really proud of having overcome the mockery of women and women’s interests. There is nothing wrong with being like other girls. Other girls are wonderful – if anything I’d like to be more like them!
