Silvie Lauder is an awarded journalist, at the magazine Respekt, in the Czech Republic. For over a decade she has been an influential writer on politics and has covered some of the biggest stories and people in that world. Lately she has become very active in writing about feminism and equality. A lot of people see her as a threat to the status quo while others see her as a messenger of change. Silvie came to my Bunker and told me how she went from complaining about the communist cantina in her town as a kid to becoming one of feminism's biggest proponents. She gave me an insight on the status of Feminism in the Czech Republic, talked about #metoo and the resilient political corruption in the country.
