Lucy Russell is an independent consultant and skilled campaigner with a history of creating groundbreaking campaigns for vulnerable youth and girls’ rights in the UK and globally. She specialises in issues such as women and girls’ rights, gender, equality, social justice, ending gender-based violence and tackling the exploitation of young people.  Currently working for the Malala Fund, previously Lucy was Head of Girls’ Rights and Youth at Plan International and Deputy Co-Chair of the UK Government’s Period Poverty Task Force.  Lucy and Kate talk about different kinds of activism, gender-based discrimination and some breath-taking findings, such as how data analysis eventually revealed the sexual exploitation of girls by gangs in Oxfordshire.
