Faye White

Print and broadcast journalist, sexual assault campaigner


Faye is a print and broadcast journalist currently working for the Daily Mail, whose work has been featured in The Sun, Grazia Magazine, Gal-Dem, Channel 4, BuzzFeed and the BBC.

After she was raped on her year abroad in 2015, Faye waived her right to anonymity and wrote a piece titled ‘A Name To A Statistic’ for her student magazine, highlighting the importance for rape and assault survivors to be recognised as people and not just data.

In the aftermath of the attack, Faye recognised that she was not receiving adequate academic support at university, and realised that this must happen to survivors all over the country. She started a campaign to change the Code of Practice on Extenuating Circumstances (EC) at universities to include a specific clause for rape and assualt survivors. The campaign made national headlines and many UK universities include the new clause in their EC Code of Practice.

Faye runs a website called whatwedotosurvive.com, where survivors of rape and assault can write anonymously or otherwise about their experiences with sexual violence, with a particular focus on recovery.
