#3 Ashley C Ford - Talking Permission, Productivity & Asking For More

Ashley C Ford is one of my favourite people to follow on Twitter. You might recognise her voice from a very popular episode discussing Friendship on Lena Dunham's podcast 'Women Of The Hour'. She left her job at Buzzfeed a year ago to work on multiple different projects. She’s writer, editor, speaker, and professor at The New School in New York. She is currently writing a memoir (among other things), and co-editing the anthology Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture with the author of Bad Feminist Roxane Gay.

She writes essays in many places from ELLE to The Guardian to BuzzFeed, and is someone with brilliant opinions, never afraid to share her truth in many different forms — she’s a really inspiring person who constantly emits positive energy online. I hope you love listening to her as much as I do.
