about

Hello. I’m Lydia Morrish, a multimedia journalist, producer and features writer primarily covering gender, politics, activism and culture. I’m based in London.

Ingrained in the world of women’s rights, I have reported extensively on the topic, most notably on reproductive healthcare, workplace discrimination and sex worker rights.

As well as writing for Dazed, Huck, Refinery29 and others, I am the UK correspondent for NewsMavens. There, I contribute news stories, fact-checking reports and reported features concerning women and gender. I’ve also recently written for Broadly and Metro.co.uk. I produce content and reports on information disorder for First Draft.

I was on the launch team of WikiTribune, the collaborative news platform created by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales. I reported from Yarl’s Wood, covered the 72nd UN General Assembly in New York and reported on Universal Basic Income in Finland.

I have multi-disciplinary experience across the digital realm, including in video and audio production, social media, building communities, data analysis and digital research.

My 2016 documentary Building Big explored the prevalence of men in the bodybuilding community who suffer from body dysmorphic disorder and in some cases become suicidal.

I’ve also given workshops and public talks on collaborative journalism at universities and Byline Festival. I have also contributed to BBC World Service and am a member of the Second Source, the network for female journalists.
