Emily Lindin

Award-winning author and documentary filmmaker Emily Lindin is the 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 Emily’s own experience.

When she was eleven 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 and recent Ph.D., Emily started The UnSlut Project by blogging her own middle school diaries and later publishing them as a book, "UnSlut: A Diary and a Memoir" (Zest, 2015).

Emily's award-winning, completely crowd-funded film, "UnSlut: A Documentary Film," is currently screening at universities, theaters, and festivals around North America. As of this fall, Emily is driving the movement to study and celebrate women's authentic sexual pleasure as the Director of Programs at OMGyes.com. 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, NPR's Here and Now, 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.
