I remember when it was quite a stretch for any newspaper to allow a writer to put a feminist frame on a story, even if it was about violence against women. That's changed. The way that we speak about women's experiences from female genital mutilation to pornography to sexual violence to street harassment has undergone a profound shift as feminist ideas have moved more firmly into the mainstream. But that doesn't mean that it's time to rest on our laurels.
No one says they want to get rid of the NHS. Everyone praises it, across all parties. It is about as powerful a symbol of goodness that we have, so it would be too dangerous not to. But for decades now, there has nevertheless been a systematic undermining of its core values.
At the end of 2014, there were 3,462 people in detention. 397 had been detained for more than six months, 108 for longer than a year, and 18 for longer than two years. This is an incredible waste of human life and potential.
If the government wants to prove it's serious about justice and protecting vulnerable people, then it will recognise that the detention estate is a product of the dark ages. Instead of tinkering with processes, Ministers should focus their efforts on consigning the whole system to the history books where it belongs.
In a country where 38million of us are socialising online, 36million of us are shopping online, 26million of us are banking online, and 4.5million of us are dating online; it is perhaps unsurprising that 65% of the public are in support of being able to cast their vote online. But what would be the benefits of such a move?
The lack of any meaningful restraining power over the 1% is not just bad for the rest of us - it is in the end even bad for them. On deeper inspection, it seems corporate titans may be little more than oversized Lords of the Flies, who need to be rescued from themselves. When we talk about shifting power away from them, we really are doing it for their own good.
Circuses with wild animals are strictly regulated by a licensing scheme, introduced in 2012, that sees them inspected by vets six times a year (twice unannounced) with the results available online. Every aspect of the animal's life, diet and accommodation is governed by strict guidelines.
Engineering educators must utilise young peoples' passion, interest, and reach out, to their dreams by means of diversifying and inspiring engineering to the next generation of engineers and scientists.
Sukina (my band member) and I often joke about performing to new audiences and how it takes about three songs before they get over the shock of hijabis running across the stage, telling them to throw their peace signs up.
With so much attention on the young girls flocking to join ISIS from the UK and elsewhere, surely a message like Jiya's that empowers girls and stands up to extremism should be spread.
Until we desist from ignoring and negating male victims/survivors from discussions of sexual abuse, rape and sexual exploitation, we will continue to keep boys and men silent and take it from me... silence is a potential killer.
"Dad had an accident." At this point, I prayed so hard her next words weren't what I feared they would be. "Dad's died." I screamed, making a noise that had never come out of my body before. David was sitting on the bed. I ran through the balcony doors and told him dad was dead.
Challenging children have challenging behaviour as does Morgan. He was a lamb really until bullying opened his eyes to being different. It made him realise he didn't fit in and he gets frustrated, upset and angry.
The trouble is who's going to be brave enough to stand up - particularly in the run up to a general election - and state that they think having a massive pot of money to help treat cancer patients needs a rethink?
The SNP goes into this Westminster election in as strong a position as we have ever been, and it is perhaps no coincidence that that is because we are offering a real alternative to the drab Tory-Labour cuts consensus.
Three quarters of prisons that hold adult men - some as young as 18 or 19 - are overcrowded... If the problem is going to be solved it requires a mature attitude by ministers and a recognition that there is indeed a problem.
Following my visit, I found that the amazing resilience of the local communities, working alongside truly heroic overseas medical staff and aid workers, had left an overwhelming impression on me. It is thanks to each one of them that Ebola has not reached our shores this time around. But, if the immense poverty in countries like Sierra Leone persists then there is no saying when the next outbreak of Ebola - or something equally horrific - will occur.
Despite a sickening slew of Labour loyalists now wishing to preen Labour's red plumage, and a depressing amount of students seemingly mesmerised by the sham feathers, we should be under no illusions what has happened here: a slightly less neoliberal party has offered a slightly less neoliberal policy.
In Fifty Shades, we see the egregious result of every Hollywood 'ending as beginning' in a way that still lionises the abuser. Hollywood's classic arc is to portray a controlling man only up to the point where he 'gets' the girl.
I've travelled all over India, and will continue to do so, taking the same precautions I always have. But do other women feel differently? To find out, I asked a group of professional women who either live in India, or travel there often, how they feel about their safety in India...
Excitement is building as the biggest four days in the calendar arrives for fans of the jumps. Yes, it's nearly that time of the year. The Cheltenham Festival is just nine days away. For those of you who don't follow racing throughout the season, here are five horses to keep your eyes on.
It's been a catch 22. Prices won't rise for female artists until they're shown in major museums; museums won't show female artists until they achieve equal heights in the market. But, excitingly, more women are occupying key influential roles - from heading up galleries to curating museum content.
