Google feminist influencers and you are met with listicles from the likes of Global Citizen, The Culture Trip, Evening Standard and Elle – but who decides what criteria makes for a feminist influencer?

After reading Not Dressed as Lamb’s blog post on how much to charge for sponsored content, a sentence struck me and it dawned on me that earning money, decent and fair money, from your own blog or social media account might be enough to count as feminist action.
Last month I learned all about Smooci, an app for sex work that has been dubbed ‘uber for escorts’. It started with a tweet. A PR was calling for bloggers/influencers who would be interested in attending a ‘sex-positive’ event.
I am a liberal, free-thinking and young(ish) woman and I wanted to know more, so I dropped her an email introducing myself. The first line of her reply made me instinctively think ‘NOPE’.
I have fallen back in love with running. Everyday my alarm goes off at 5.45am on the other side of the room. I am forced to get up to turn it off, at which point I chug a large glass of water and then lie back down for 10 to 15 minutes as I slowly wake up.
Gym experts across the UK were asked what they thought the best gym machines were to achieve three different types of fitness goal: overall fitness, weight loss and building muscle. They were then also asked to pick just one piece of equipment as their overall top performer.
At the end of June a recycled trainer was released, Converse Renew Canvas, with the entire fabric upper section woven from recycled polyester fiber made from old water bottles.
I went to the launch party in Stable Street, Kings Cross London, on behalf of Very* to learn about how trainers can be made from recycled plastic and see them for myself.
