Hannah Price is the founder of Revolt Sexual Assault, a national campaign working to expose the real nature and extent of sexual violence and harassment experienced by former and current students at universities.
Hannah campaigns for the national reform required to address this epidemic. Hannah herself was raped at university and didn’t feel able to report it. Last May, after becoming increasingly frustrated with the normalisation of sexual violence and the lack of support available – especially within the university environment – she started to utilise social media platforms, to give other students a platform to voice their experiences.
Using Snapchat testimonials, Hannah helps each survivor to be completely in control of their anonymity, and beneath the filters, the life-long effect that these assaults are having on survivors became more than just words on a webpage.
Hannah runs Revolt Sexual Assault alongside her full-time employment, and freelance journalism work. She is British Vogue’s latest ‘Girl on a Mission’. What started as a campaign at her own university campus in Bristol has grown into a national movement thanks to the incredible response it has received.
Her work at Revolt Sexual Assault has received national and international recognition, including; public speaking, media appearances and setting up the first national survey in a decade on sexual violence at universities. Her campaign journalism has been featured internationally, including Now This, Marie Claire Brazil and British Vogue.
Hannah suffers from two chronic autoimmune conditions, ME and Ulcerative Colitis, and as a freelance journalist, she uses her life experiences to report on women’s rights, chronic illnesses and social justice. Her bylines can be found in BBC Stories, The Guardian, Refinery29, Stylist Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Huffington Post, The Telegraph and Times Higher Education.
Hannah has a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Bristol and was named Best Journalist in the South at the 2017 SPA Awards.
