Chvrches singer Lauren Mayberry has spoken out on the subject of sexism and misogyny before
Chvurches frontwoman Lauren Mayberry has hit back at misogynistic abuse online, after being widely targeted by internet trolls for wearing a short dress in the band’s recent video.
The singer called the response to the Leave a Trace video “ludicrous”.
Mayberry told Channel 4 news she did not think “the ‘just ignore it and it will blow away’ argument” was working.
She condemned “cavemen” who threaten sexual violence when they do not like what a woman is doing or saying.
“I am a 27-year-old woman wearing a minidress with wet-look hair. If you don’t like it, that’s fine, but there is a difference between criticism and hatred,” said Mayberry.
