Women make up only around 30% of the House of Commons right now, a very obvious misrepresentation of our society. I'm sure I don't have to spell out that we make up at least half the population. There are pressures that keep women out of Parliament - the sometimes overly macho attitude to lawmaking, the sitting hours and travel time that disrupt family life - but these are things we cannot change from the outside. My call to All Women Everywhere is to be the change they want to see in the world. To the women reading this: if being underrepresented in Parliament annoys you, like it did me, perhaps it is time to consider running for office.
In order to get any sort of good deal for Britain we need friends, not enemies; you should be reaching out, not turning your back or stamping your well shod feet. British expectations should be realistic from the outset.
29th March 2017 is a dark day and I believe those that brought it about will not be remembered kindly by history, regardless what happens next. For as long as we are still in the EU, millions of us will continue to voice our opinion and to fight for the UK to remain in the EU. And if we do leave, we will campaign to re-join.
Kerry Howard vlogs for The Huffington Post UK on how she "fell into" comedy, how she wants to honour and replicate the work of leading women like French and Saunders and Victoria Wood, and why casting agents shouldn't look for trends and instead "just go with what's funny".
It's time we do everything we can to prevent the fracking industry from disastrous extraction of fossil fuels. It's time we stand up with the communities affected by the fracking industry and combat the media's narrative by engaging people and building the alternative, clean fuelled future we deserve.
We often talk about counter-narratives but that is not enough: counter-narratives do have an important role to play, when seeking to re-engage those already susceptible. But 'Don't be an extremist' is too passive. We need a positive call to action - a clear articulation of a shared identity and sense of belonging. The response to Wednesday's cowardly attack gave a taste of what that could be - proud, inclusive and resilient.
I ran over to the car, cutting my bare feet on the glass and metal, and tried to break free the man stuck inside. I clenched my teeth, sunk my body weight and used every last ounce of strength I could muster, but I couldn't break free the door.
There are gaps that need filling and this will take vast resource and resolve. The UK Prime Minister has called this 'the great human rights issue of our time' and it is my hope that defeating this will be one of the greatest achievements of our time.
As part of our All Women Everywhere project, Francesca vlogs on being spoken down to and undermined by men as a sports fan and why she won't let anyone stop her from enjoying and talking about the sports she loves.
People underestimate both their children's intelligence and ability to identify love in its various forms but also their acceptance of various family models. If it is so easy for a child to accept then I wonder again if these countries are protecting the adults, rather the children.
Zuckerberg wasn't considering the needs of feminists when he designed Facebook: he was thinking of college frat boys who wanted to get their rocks off. And the rules haven't changed; as feminists we're still operating in a relatively hostile environment, where the community guidelines are applied haphazardly, and without the safety of women and other marginalised groups being a priority.
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.
