Julie Bindel (born 1962) is an English writer, feminist and co-founder of the group Justice For Women, which opposes violence against women from a feminist viewpoint.
She is described as a "Marmite writer", in that readers tend either to love or hate her work, and is a freelance journalist whose work regularly appears in The Guardian. She writes non-fiction including news articles; interviews; as well as columns, reviews and editorial pieces. Her primary areas of interest are lesbian rights, opposition to the sex industry, modern anti-trafficking campaigns and defending female victims of domestic violence. Bindel, who has been involved in feminist law reform campaigns for victims of domestic violence, originally began writing as a way to get the message across to the wider public. Bindel is also openly lesbian and has shared her views and been quoted regarding sexual identity and sexual orientation issues and refers to herself as a political lesbian feminist.
As of 2009 she resides in Crouch End and has written about the area. In August 2010 she entered the Independent's "Pink List" as ninety-eighth of the top 101 most influential gay and lesbian people in the UK.
