CHVRCHES singer Lauren Mayberry recently spoke out about the #MeToo movement – saying that she’s happy that progress has been made against misogyny, now society needs to act upon the dialogue.

Mayberry has made headlines in the in the past when she came under fire from sexist trolls having been very vocal about feminism. Now as the band prepare return with their hotly anticipated third album, she’s said that the conversation around misogyny needs to be turned into action.

“It’s great that people are speaking up, but I want to see what happens in the next couple of years – if people actually put their money where their mouth is,” she told Pitchfork. “So many people are being fully genuine about it, but there are some people who are definitely using it as a way of finding some kind of branding niche and that’s kind of fucked up.”
