If you look at the records, he simply doesn't exist, as if he was a somehow nothing more than a figment of my imagination. But he's so much more than that. And while Archie was only on this Earth for a few short minutes, he existed to me. He was, and will always be, my little boy and there's not a day goes by that I don't think of him. You see, according to UK law as it stands, a parent cannot be issued with a birth certificate if the child is born showing no signs of life before 24 weeks.
When Donald Trump declared last year that women who have abortions should be punished, he met widespread condemnation. Yet in the UK we have no right to be smug. In our country today, women can and are being punished for having an abortion.
Friday marks Donald Trump's inauguration, a day many of us had never envisaged. For many of us, it is not just political - it is personal. As a Muslim, an African, a refugee, a woman and a socialist, I fear many of Trump's policies. Of higher borders and a no Muslim entrance policy, of lower corporation tax and casual misogyny. I fear their impact and I fear our future with the way our world leaders are shaping up.
I won't be watching the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States, not out of disdain or disrespect, but because I've spent enough time looking at this Strong Man and understanding how he gained power, and now it's time to look at what role I can play to make sure the next leaders whose rise I can influence is not of his ilk.
From initial symptoms of depression to admission to a mental health unit 10 days later via the crisis team, depression ripped the rug out from under my feet and emptied my whole being. I have been completely disabled and incapacitated by this illness.
Instead of reeling off a list of arguments about why the voters deserve a chance to vote on whether the exact type of Brexit we're getting is the one they wanted, I am instead providing you with a warning, from a parallel universe...
Like many people in cinemas around the world, this week I fell utterly in love with La La Land. For me, the film had extra sparkle because I went to Los Angeles last summer and got to reminisce about an absolutely wonderful trip.
I moved to London just over a year ago, and was introduced almost immediately to the most active and vibrant LGBT scene that I had ever known. People around me were comfortable in their skins in a way that was new to me - they wore the rainbow flag with pride, dated openly and flirted unashamedly.
As a human, woman and feminist, I support the march. As a mother, I feel it is fundamental for me to join the protest, to show solidarity with people the world over, to register discontent with institutionalised prejudice and casual misogyny, but also to feel good about our children's future.
For fear of judgement from others, older women tend to play it safe fashion-wise, sticking to a handful of brands that we see our peers wearing and giving up on anything that we perceive to represent 'young fashion'. In truth, many women my age feel that they've lost the right to wear what they want. But, as I've said many times before, and will continue to do so - fashion is ageless!
Technology-driven unemployment is no longer just an ailment of low-income households. No job is safe. There are now AI lawyers, AI accountants, and AI financial advisors. Even AI hedge fund managers. So much money is now being spent on technology that Gartner estimates many companies spend more on marketing technology than they do on actual marketing.
What Payet's shenanigans have ultimately done is avert critical eyes away from the team's performances on the pitch, not to mention ease fears about Bilic's future. With no so called star player, there will inevitably be less media attention around the squad and the need to appease Payet with positive results will also be absent.
Change will happen when we join together to stand up to and fight for justice against misogyny, racism, homophobia, Islamophobia and all forms of bigotry and hatred, taking our negative feelings of despondency and channeling them into positive affirmative action. So let's come together to march on London, not in protest but in celebration of diversity, equality and peace.
It is crucial we stand up to Trump this Friday and we need people from across the country to play their part in building a mass demonstration against racism on 18 March 2017. The international march will coincide with UN Anti-Racism Day and is backed by the Trade Union Congress. It could prove to be a powerful display of unity against the sustained threat of racism we face.
Yes, the Joebama memes have been a highlight of the last stretch of the Obama presidency, but the sincere importance of this unforgivingly loving, respectful and supportive relationship must not be forgotten. As the world watches two intolerant men sworn into leadership of the free world this week, let us remember and celebrate the bromance.
The figure of Trump looms large over all of us as we prepare to March on London on Saturday. But new data revealed by the Fawcett Society today shows just how hostile our own society is towards women. It seems we have a few Trumps of our own.
I don't always go on marches. I am an activist, a doer and that weaves through my life in lots of different ways. But sometimes, a march or an opportunity comes and you know it is the right one for you. The right time, the right place, the right cause. The Women's March on London is one of those moments for me.
The fact that Notting Hill is always measured by its crime rate in the first place is evidence of the biased and discriminatory way in which black culture's value is measured in the UK. Not Glastonbury, or no other public event of such standing gets judged in the same manner.
Feminism is about women having the same freedom men have, to have the choice to live whatever life they wish. To reiterate, you can always, always be both. And so, with this in mind, if and when a woman decides to marry and/or have children there should be no change in her plight for female independence.
Today we have taken a big step towards solving this dilemma. The final full results of a ground breaking research study - PROMIS - have been published in the Lancet. The findings show that giving a man a multi-parametric MRI (mpMRI) scan before a biopsy can radically improve the accuracy of the diagnostic process for prostate cancer.
But just because the criminal law has little role does not mean viewing porn in public is ok. It's yet another commonplace form of street harassment, of sexual harassment, like having to put up with wolf-whistling. People viewing porn in public know they are making others uncomfortable, or worse.
For Fashion Revolution, truth means transparency and transparency implies honesty, openness, communication and accountability. Transparency means that if human rights or environmental abuses are discovered, it is far easier for relevant stakeholders to understand what went wrong, who is responsible and how to fix it. It also helps unions, communities and garment workers themselves to more swiftly alert brands to human rights and environmental concerns.
