A group of young writers came together at this year's Young Writer's Festival in Dunedin in September to talk about modern feminism. Journalist, Sasha Borissenko, was one of those on stage at The Blaming of the Shrew: From the Frontlines of Contemporary Feminism. She talks to Megan Whelan about finding ways to get people to tell their own stories in the media in a way that's authentic, but also protects them from trolls and unwarranted ridicule. Sasha is the journalist who broke the story of inappropriate sexual conduct by senior partners at law firm Russell McVeigh.
