ABBIE CHATFIELD: Millennial feminism, a mind blowing introduction‪.‬ Wild with Sarah Wilson

    • Society & Culture

Have you heard Abbie Chatfield let rip? You must. The 26-year-old is a reality TV star and vibrator saleswoman with an irreverent podcast (400,000 downloads a month) who will put her boobs, STI treatment plans and beliefs on the public line to make an often controversial and important point, invariably in support of female sexual rights and voice. Oh, and getting vaccinated.
As a Gen X feminist, I find it a thing to behold. And I've been wonderfully challenged by the Peak 2021 Sensation that she is for some time. So many questions, so much to humbly learn from her ability to tread complex nuance, and to brazenly cut to awkward chases. In many ways she takes what feminists of my generation (and older) fought for (and struggled to land) and puts it back on the agenda, front and centre and says...right, deal with it, now, all of you!
For some reality TV mash-up context: Abbie was a controversial star of the The Bachelor, The Bachelor In Paradise and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here (which she won).  She's recently online feuded with a Married at First Sight star (calling them out for supporting rape humour) and a Home and Away star (on their anti-vax stance). She's just finished gig as host Love Island After Party, about to host Below Deck, done a project for Real Housewives where she sings a duet with comedian Joel Creasey…and has just announced she's dating a recent Bachelorette contestant. All in three years. She has sold 100,000 of her vibrators since April and is an ambassador to various brands, including Levis, which she models with her cellulite un-airbrushed.
We talk all of the above, and drill down to what drives her, what it's like to be a young person wading into "Troll Territory" daily, and ultimately how she feels a responsibility to young women struggling to find their voice in the #metoo era. 
On air, I challenge her to join the climate movement...we need Abbie Chatfield (feel free to prod her on her socials).Her podcast It's A Lot has charted here in Australia and has 400,000 downloads a month.. A pretty good effort for a show made in her lounge room floor when she's “red wine drunk” with mates.  Listen to It's A Lot: https://pod.link/1500849438 Follow Wild with Sarah Wilson: https://podfollow.com/1548626341
