Emily Lindin is the author of the new book "UnSlut: A Diary and a Memoir" and founder of The UnSlut Project, an online community where survivors of sexual bullying and "slut" shaming can share their stories, and where girls who are currently suffering can find support and solidarity. The UnSlut Project was inspired by Ms. Lindin's own experience. When she was 11 years old, she was labeled a "slut" by her classmates and was bullied at school, after school, and online. During all this, she kept a regular diary. Now a Harvard graduate pursuing her Ph.D. in California, Ms. Lindin started The UnSlut Project by blogging her own middle school diaries.
In addition to Ms. Lindin's recently released book, "UnSlut: A Diary and a Memoir," The UnSlut Project's award-winning, completely crowd-funded film, "UnSlut: A Documentary Film" is currently screening at universities, theaters, and festivals around North America. She has been featured sharing her story and speaking out against "slut" shaming on television and radio shows including ABC with Katie Couric, CNN with Brooke Baldwin, The Doctors, Al Jazeera America, HLN, DNTO radio with Sook-Yin Lee, NPR's Here and Now, Deutsche Welle radio, Radio Ireland, and in many magazines and blogs including Women's Health Magazine, Glamour UK, Salon.com, The Telegraph, The New Statesman, This Magazine, The Huffington Post, and The Observer.
