Winnie M Li AB ‘00 is an author and activist. She worked as a film producer in London before her life was disrupted by a violent stranger rape in Belfast in 2008. Her debut novel, DARK CHAPTER, is a fictional retelling of that event from victim and perpetrator perspectives. Translated into ten languages, it won The Guardian’s Not The Booker Prize and was nominated for an Edgar Award. She is currently adapting it for the screen. Her second novel COMPLICIT was published in Summer 2022 and selected by The New York Times for their ‘Group Text' book club. Winnie is also Co-Founder of the Clear Lines Festival, the UK’s first-ever festival addressing sexual assault and consent through the arts and discussion. Her ongoing PhD research at the London School of Economics explores media engagement by rape survivors as a form of activism. Winnie has given over 200 public talks and appeared on the BBC, Sky News, Channel 4, The Guardian, The Mail on Sunday, The Times, The Irish Times, and TEDx London. She holds an honorary doctorate of law from the National University of Ireland in recognition of her writing and activism, and currently lives in the English countryside with her partner and toddler. http://winniemli.com.
