Refinery29 (VICE Group)

Gillian is an award-winning journalist and Head of Content at Refinery29, which launched in the UK in 2015. Previously an Arts and Features Writer at The Independent, Gillian has spearheaded ground-breaking editorial projects that speak to Refinery29’s engaged, female audience: these include ‘Stop Skirting The Issue’, a campaign which successfully pushed for "upskirt" photography to be made a sexual offence and ‘Rag Week’, an on-site takeover on Refinery29 that addressed the taboos and poor media coverage surrounding periods. She has also contributed to the likes of Vogue, ELLE and ES Magazine.
