Fiona Elvines – Individual Award Nominee – 2013

Fiona is Operations Coordinator at Rape Crisis South London and a PhD student at the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit. She led the successful campaign to include ‘rape’ in the definition of extreme pornography, starting an online petition that attracted 72,000 signatures and was supported by a large number of academics, activists and women’s groups. She has both carried out high profile media work and advised the government in private.

Fiona has led this campaign as a result of her work at Croydon Rape Crisis, but has done the majority of the campaigning in her spare time.
