Chvrches lead-singer Lauren Mayberry was interviewed by Cathy Newman on Channel 4 last night (August 27) in a discussion focused on misogyny and internet trolls. Mayberry focused on the potential misogyny which effects female fans of Chvrches, “I hate the idea that young girls who follow our band deal with stuff like that. I don’t want them to feel isolated, I don’t want them to feel like it is just happening to them, because it happens everywhere”.
Mayberry also talked about the trolling aimed personally at her, and concluded that the most sensible approach for dealing with the troll and misogynistic culture was to push forward a “shift in the cultural approach to women… that will take time”.
