Beki Reilly, creative, 360i
Last year, Reilly created "Colour up next Tuesday. A feminist colouring book", which empowers women to take back negative, derogatory words for the vagina. "C.U.N.T." was launched on KickStarter, where it reached its target in 10 days and picked up some incredible coverage across Glamour, HuffPost, Metro, Bustle and Design Taxi.
