His jail sentence, his crime, his life, his guilt. The language of the perpetrator is everywhere, yet the language of the victim is nowhere to be found. 439 words and Reeva isn't named once, referred to singularly at the beginning with poetic abandon: 'He killed his girlfriend.'What we have here is an insensitively-timed rumination on prison reform at the expense of a 'girlfriend' Simon Jenkins didn't even have the consideration to name. Spectacular timing in a year when it was revealed around 90% of all reports of domestic violence to police forces in England and Wales are taken no further.
Charleston, South Carolina, is unquestionably one of the most beautiful cities in North America. The restaurant scene is fantastic too. But the winner for me, by a country mile, was Aluette's Holistic Soulfood Café. It looks very much like any other soul food place you might wander into, but here the produce is guaranteed seasonal, fresh and local.
Intimate partner violence is terrifyingly common among young people, and in society as a whole, with an average of two women a week killed by a partner or former partner in England and Wales. Yet it is denied, and victims are blamed and suffer an average of 35 violent incidents before seeking help.
Over 200,000 care workers, the people entrusted to look after our elderly and disabled, are regularly being paid less than the National Minimum Wage (NMW) £6.50 an hour. Over 200,000 people, doing some of the most vital and important work in our society, are the victims of a crime which causes poverty and leads to untold pain and misery for our care users.
Every year, Trinidad and Tobago becomes a paradise holiday retreat for thousands of people around the world. But in the twin island state, many women and men are living in hell as they continue to be discriminated against for who they are, and who they love.
Labour would be best rethinking this potential pledge before it is announced. A cut in tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000 will not help Labour successfully captured the student vote. It will instead send a message to students that they agree with the tuition fees policy implemented by the coalition.
I do not want special treatment. I do not want campaigns or petitions; I want to provide for myself and try to leave a legacy for my children. Well reported cases would give the impression that society is dealing with its prejudices. Sadly, it would appear that I am prevented from doing so by prejudiced attitudes that still prevail - no matter how many high profile cases hit the media.
Some days I can forget about it. I don't have to double up on ibuprofen and paracetamol, stick menthol heat patches over my neck or wear a hot water bottle draped on my shoulders. Unfortunately, those days are few and far between.
Why mindfulness? I've mentioned a lot that I had a mental car crash seven years ago. I said, to quote Scarlett O'Hara (sort of), "I will never go crazy again". And so I've kept my promise to myself and haven't had an episode of depression for seven years.
Having suffered from life-threatening bouts of depression for four years before my eventual recovery at the start of 2012, I have a lot of experience with feeling suicidal. Here's my list of 10 things to do when you're in that awful place where you feel as if all hope is lost.
It's hard to pick a player out to cheer for this season, partly because nobody has done anything spectacular, partly because the system played doesn't elicit excitement but mostly because all of the players, and even the manager just come across as quite dull.
The new figures show more than twice as many people in the UK have dementia before the age of 65 than was thought. It's estimated 42,000 people have young onset dementia (also called early onset dementia) - including thousands of cases among those in their 40s, and more than 700 cases among those in their 30s.
Whilst other clubs may feel they can never replicate the 'Invincibles', the real problem for Arsenal is that they cannot hope to either, with the past heroics of remaining undefeated now more of a hindrance than an inspiration.
Women's fitness is a minefield, with promises of 15-minute fat loss workouts, two-minute routines and adverts for the latest workout trend or craze, which is guaranteed to get you in shape in double-quick time. But how much of this stuff will actually hold up for most people and how do we separate what works from what doesn't?
Real recall would mean MPs who are involved in serious misconduct, fail to represent their constituents (think Nadine Dorries or George Galloway ditching the Commons for reality TV), switch parties without triggering a by-election or break electoral promises could face recall if enough of their constituents demand it.
I am a North Korean defector who escaped the hardship of the region in 2007. Korea has remained in the media spotlight in recent weeks due to the unprecedented disappearance, and reappearance, of leader Kim Jong-un. Countless people have spoken about the missing dictator, but very little attention is being focused on the invisible victims of the Kim regime...
Allying with Assad would be worse than poor strategy; it would be morally unacceptable to anyone with an ounce of decency, and to anyone with the slightest stake in identifying and punishing his crimes.
I had the distinct privilege of being asked to be a best man recently and was absolutely touched that Justin thought of me in such high regard so I was determined to repay his faith by at least getting my first and arguably the most important job right, arranging the stag. How hard could it be to round up our closest buddies, decide where to go and how to do it and send JJ off in style?
You call in sick with a moderate physical ailment, because it's easier to tell your boss you have a migraine/food poisoning/the flu than go into the intricacies of something you may not understand yourself. Have you ever been told to 'be strong' or 'get over it' by someone who just can't fathom the incorporeal nature of what's affecting your life?
The first time it happened I was running on a busy street and three men in a white van beeped their horn and yelled something about my 'tight ass' as I crossed their path. I felt the heat rising to my face and a stab of anger in the pit of my stomach, but I thought 'whatever, they're just sad old men who don't know how to talk to women', I flipped them the bird and upped my pace.
We are left with the responsibility to carry the task through, but Efua has paved the way. Efua was loved like few people I've known and she has changed the lives of more girls than would ever come to know her. She will be greatly missed and the thoughts of all of us are with her family.
More and more, I believe parenting experts and childcare gurus are a scourge on modern mums, with a combination of one-size-fits all, conflicting advice that creates expectations that we - and certainly our babies - can never live up to. This leads to guilt, anxiety or, in my case, even depression as I felt I was failing at the most important job I have ever done.
