Two thirds of female politicians have faced sexism at work. We endure derogatory comments, social media abuse and being judged solely on our appearances. I refuse to be put off, but I worry about the impact on others who might be reconsidering stepping into the public sphere. I'm calling on the editor of the Daily Mail to apologise to the Prime Minister and First Minister, and to all of the young women aspiring to be politicians who want to be recognised for their knowledge and achievements, not the shimmer of their legs.
Mrs May should be upfront: in two years' time, we'll leave the EU. But while we're working out the final deal, let's agree a transitional deal, giving us the time and space needed to negotiate the best deal for Britain's future outside the EU. Britain can prosper after Brexit. But the PM has to put the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of her agenda, and take time to get the right deal, to make it fair.
A leading national newspaper has produced a blatantly sexist front page - and apparently, we're all meant to turn a blind eye to it... If I ever have a daughter, I don't want her to experience catcalling and I certainly don't want her to see the way women are treated in male-dominated professions and believe she can't chase her dreams. The only way to make things better for the next generation of women is to say enough is enough, today.
Across East Africa more than 18million people are facing catastrophic drought and food shortages. Already in Somalia people have died because of hunger and as the drought deepens people are becoming weaker and exhausting all their coping mechanisms to keep themselves and their families alive.
Yes, it’s an abhorrent front page. Yes, it’s deeply frustrating, it’s offensive and it’s outdated. But I’m not alone in my anger. Thousands and thousands of people are furious about it.
So as we continue to go about our normal lives, in the face of this attack, whether you're celebrating Nowruz or marking the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination these values of tolerance and openness should stay at the forefront of our collective consciousness.
In short, if Donald Trump had any interest in a sensible budget, he would begin by cutting out this monumental waste of money. It is a shame that President Obama failed to fulfil his promise to close the prison, but this should not lessen our own commitment to make sure it happens.
The journey to Brexit is going to be long and complex and Theresa May's triggering of Article 50 this week is just the first step. There are a myriad of decisions to be made, issues to be resolved and personalities to manage. With the key players agreeing that "nothing will be agreed until everything is agreed", it is clear that the situations will be in flux until the very last moment.
Fat is political, sometimes so powerful it can govern over us. While I've worked hard to overcome my eating and body image issues, now feeling comfortable in my skin, I believe my fear of fat will remain for as long as society is afraid of it.
The days will come and they will go, some days will be tough. When baby is ill, when your friends that are still on maternity meet up without you, you will feel a sense of loss, but most days will just come and go.
During my undergraduate and my master's degrees, I always wondered why so many of my lecturers were men and why there were hardly any women in our faculty. Especially when my classes were made up of mostly female students; it just didn't add up.
In setting out a clear plan to overhaul their advertising policies and give clients greater control over where their adverts appear, they have every chance of winning their deserters round. Now is the time for Google to make good on its promises.
I'm looking forward to seeing what Carswell does next, because surely now everything he stands for has been destroyed. He can no longer play the 'I'm a great democrat' card - because he's not. He can no longer argue that politics is a cartel dominated by people who don't want to give up power - because he is one of them. He can no longer lambast his fellow politicians for breaking promises made to voters - because he has done the same.
Owning your own home has long been regarded as a universal aspiration and helps unlock high levels of social mobility in the UK. But rates of home ownership among young people today are currently in free-fall - making it a distant dream for millions who do not have the luxury of relying on the bank of 'mum and dad' to get them a foot up on the housing ladder.
If Brexit is the most pressing challenge working people face, it's not the only one. Automation is also casting a long shadow. The replacement of workers by robots is an issue facing all parts of manufacturing and many service sectors but it's presently focussed on the motor industry above all.
The theme for this year's International Women's Day was #BeBoldForChange, calling on us all to make a world that works better and harder for gender inclusivity. Yet, despite society moving on from the sexism of the 1960s and 1970s, there are still some issues that demand our attention.
It would be the height of folly to claim that a coordinated series of attacks on the scale of the 7/7 bombings in 2005 could not be mounted again. But it is worth noting that for more than a decade, there has been nothing comparable. (In 2007, two car bombs were discovered and disabled before they could be detonated, and the following day, there was an attempted attack at Glasgow airport.)
Over the twenty-some intervening years, I have begun to wonder how many such socially inept policies vandalised the spaces in which people within similar communities across the nation were able to come together, and in so doing, created the conditions for holes to form within the fabric of human connection.
Last year 45 year old father of two, Lloyd Pinder, was diagnosed with terminal prostate cancer. He was told that he has 5-10 years to live. However, he is hopeful that he can live for another 20. Here he vlogs about his diagnosis, the impact it has had on his family and what he is doing to ensure no man ends up in the same situation as him.
President Trump is probably sitting in the Oval Office seething. What went wrong? Leaving aside the technical details, such as the loss of medical insurance coverage for 25 million people - scaring the moderates, or in the other extreme, not cutting costs enough for the diehards, this legislative exercise, like all major decisions, is about behaviour.
There are many politicians across all parties who do great work for us. But Parliament hasn't traditionally chosen to tackle period poverty. This change in attitude is important. And it has been driven by the generations of everyday superheroes/campaigners who have pushed for it.
Not only does he incorrectly assume that she was "paying no mind" to the carnage, he has no idea what might have transpired only seconds before or after. As the photographer later revealed, the poor woman was visibly horrified and behaving exactly the same as many other people on the bridge.
