Meet the CB team: Elsa Pearl
Name and role:
Elsa Pearl, Events and Site Photographer
I’ve had a tattoo since I was 8 when my brother stabbed me with a pen.
What does intersectional feminism mean to you?
For me, intersectional feminism is a lens through which to see my place in the world and better understand how I can build others up with my voice, my actions and my camera.
What is your favourite thing about Clitbait?
I love the way Clitbait balances tackling serious and prevalent issues with an incontrovertible sense of humour. I think finding ways to laugh at systems of oppression and injustice gives them less power in the world.
What inspires you?
Great literature and people who make others feel beautiful in themselves.
What things do you do outside Clitbait that you are proud of?
I’m proud of my involvement in the mindfulness charity Street Wisdom. I’m their photographer and have helped facilitate some of their events which aim to help people find fresh answers to questions they’re struggling with in their life. All this is with the object of improving mental health in urban areas.
A guilty feminist confession?
I’m a feminist but… I’ve always wanted to be a Bond girl.
A personal feminist triumph?
I’ve recently had work of mine featured on the cover of Darkus magazine. It’s my first cover and for it I got to shoot a really talented friend of mine, Maya Delilah who is a supernova female guitarist (check out her music on Spotify, she’s amazing)!
