Prostitution is the commodification of the bodies of women of girls. It is born out of the ideology that women are second-class citizens raised to service men. Decriminalisation would reinforce that, declaring that women's rights must come last. If you think that is acceptable, you cannot stand for women's rights, you cannot stand for women's liberation and you cannot stand for equality.
Jeremy Corbyn's comments have some striking similarities to a piece written in 2001, by a possible future leader of Cameron's own party - Boris Johnson.
We all condemned the French magazine who published topless photos of Kate Middleton on holiday a few years ago, but put Justin Bieber in the same position and suddenly it's fair game?
I listened to home secretary Theresa May's speech at the Conservative Party Conference with mounting distress and sorrow. I heard her labelling people like me who survive torture as "illegal immigrants" who abuse the system by smuggling themselves into the UK, and declare that she would institute a new "tough" system to weed out such undeserving cases.
It's two years since Margaret Thatcher died and 25 since she quit as Prime Minister but Tories still love their former leader. From the conference stage to fringe meetings and book stalls at their annual shindig in Manchester, there was evidence of "Thatcher-mania" - a low-key, quiet majority version of "Corbyn-mania". Here's a brief guide to where it was spotted.
We need the Government to lead on data. But it is afraid that a strong data framework will prevent it selling off our data to reduce Government costs. The Government is risking our long term data future for short term political gain. It is afraid that if it stands up for the safeguarding of our data, we'll see its hands are already in the till.
All three look to have pulled it out of the bag when it really mattered, but there can only be one winner. Who is going to claim the most sought-after tent-based accolade in television?
My impression was that New Zealand is a virgin, not yet corrupted by greed and ruthless competition. People here are sweet, not aggressive. Even the birds are friendly. There have never been any predators so even the robins come up and stare at you with absolutely no fear; practically feeding you crumbs
We're not asking Roche to give Kadcyla away for free; we are simply asking them to offer the NHS a price that is affordable until a long-term solution can be found, and give clinicians the tools they need to help secondary breast cancer patients.
This Is England is the most important British drama of the century so far. Following the M*A*S*H model of the film-turned-TV series, writer-director Shane Meadows has fashioned a blood-boltered, tonally infinite epic poem of Thatcherite Britain.
I had a dream upbringing, but still, from eight years old I had to see a "worry doctor", which was kid-speak for a psychologist. Sadness and worry have sat on my shoulder since then. Sometimes they take holidays, and even gap years -- but just when I think they have fucked off for good, they return.
Guess what, if you get the job, great, super great. You'll get to do something with other like minded folk, you might make a few pennies and get to dress up for a few days. If you don't get it, don't worry. Have some ice cream, find your mates and slag off the director and laugh about it.
There is no morality to food. It is sustenance, joy, sharing, culture, and just plain fun. We were given taste buds and pleasure centres in our brains for a reason. And bodies that live, breathe, play, and love.
Last week, while promoting new film Suffragette, Time Out asked the First Lady of Fabulous the seemingly superfluous question 'u a feminist, bae?'... Streep responded with this curveball: "I am a humanist. I aim for a nice easy balance."
From players to coaches no-one ever sets out to fall short and my hope is that this audit is conducted with integrity for that is what this, and indeed, every management team deserves.
Nowadays men dressing for a night on the town may still wear a smart shirt, but it is likely to be untucked and open at the collar. In fact, dress codes have relaxed so much, it can now be acceptable for the modern male to work tie-less or in short-sleeved shirts - all without the covering of a waistcoat or jacket.
We're in a golden age for children's books: this autumn sees such a wealth of brilliant titles that I've had to separate fiction from non-fiction (non-fiction highlights coming next week). Below are books that will make your child laugh, think, feel and be inspired - what more could we ask for?
As a mother I want to prepare my children for any obstacles they may encounter. I want to encourage them to work hard, treat others with respect and kindness, be good citizens and contribute to society in a positive manner. But how do I prepare their innocent young minds for possible racism when they see everyone as the same as them?
It's time to appreciate how good it is to be a geek right now because, not to end on a downer, it will eventually come to an end. The grip that Tribe Geek has over the popular culture will slip eventually and we will be forced to look backwards with our trademark nostalgia.
I believe that we can make this era - these 2010s - a defining decade for our country, the turnaround decade, one which people will look back on and say: "That's the time when the tide turned, when people no longer felt the current going against them, but working with them." We can be that Greater Britain.
The Greek response to the huge challenge of austerity has been courageous and heartening. Because information is power, resistance to austerity has also materialised in the shape of a 'Truth Committee on Public Debt' set up in response to mounting economic challenges in Greece. Greeks aren't alone in facing damaging cutbacks...
Denis will be remembered by all in politics, regardless of affiliation with affection. He was simply the best of politicians. A socialist, a man of firm conviction, a heavyweight intellectual, a mischievous wit and story teller, a patriot and someone the British public felt they could trust. Ultimately, a dreadnought class politician who helped rescue our economy and saved the Labour Party in its darkest hour. I am grateful to have known him and to have had my life enriched by his company.
