Happy international women’s day – FD049


This week’s guest is Francesca. I selected her interview to go live on International Women’s Day especially.




I really wanted to share what she had to say about the way the wild swimming community on social media feels like such a safe space.


And how an ill-judged comment, about bodies, can jeopardise that.


She has first hand experience of that.

So also chose to challenge it, despite knowing that this might result in other people, hiding behind fake names and laptop screens piling on and trolling her.


It feels ridiculous to call her brave.

Why should it be brave to speak up about something you are unhappy about, in terms of the way an image of yourself has been treated?

Nevertheless, I think it is brave.

Huge thanks to Francesca for sharing.
