Molly Perkins

Remote Writer Vienna, Austria

Hi! I’m Molly (She/Her), a writer at Thred. I’m originally from the UK but have been galivanting around Europe for the past seven years. I’m currently based in Vienna, Austria. I love to read and write about feminism, culture, and society. My main interests are books, bread, and hanging out with my Hungarian cat, Zsuzsi. Connect with me on LinkedIn and feel free to drop me an email.

Molly (She/Her) studied English Literature and History at the University of Birmingham and decided to head to Europe as soon as she graduated.

After a year in Barcelona and three years in Berlin, she now lives in Vienna, Austria. Molly has been a book worm ever since she was a kid and her dream is to write her own book someday. She currently works full time as a Content Manager and writes freelance in her spare time. She’s written about everything from diabetes to cryptocurrency but her favourite things to focus on are feminism, culture, society, and relationships.

In her spare time, you can find her watching trash TV,  hanging out with her Hungarian cat, Zsuzsi, and of course, reading. Molly is thrilled to write about the things she loves the most for Thred and is excited to promote change through one of the most powerful forms of activism, writing!

Opinion – why we should all stop looking for ‘the one’

As Gen Z continues to challenge the established status quo toward finances, sexuality, and capitalism, why are we still so fixated on the age-old concept of ‘finding the one’? We often hear that Gen-Z is the generation of individualism. While they’re often criticised for this heightened sense of self, it could be argued that Gen-Z is the first generation to spend time thinking about what they really want. In fact,...

Why is a drop in female LGBTQIA+ clubs concerning?

Queer nightlife spaces have consistently been at the heart of the LGBTQIA+ community.
