Caitlin Moran and I are from the generation that normalised binge drinking and now women are paying the price. We bought a lie and now it's time to get honest.

The Cult of Celebrity

We have created a culture that, on mass, rejects spiritual belief yet deifies the famous. Our new, modern day religion is the focal point of many people's lives. A whopping 11.7 million people trawl through the celebrity gossip pages of the Mail Online every day!

Let's Make Feminism the Biggest Joke in Town

Rachel Stroud | Posted 29.09.2014 | UK Comedy
Rachel Stroud

If there's one thing I'm bored of hearing when I ask to be treated equally to a man, it is 'you take yourself too seriously'... Humour, we're told, is a boys' game. Men are taught that their friendships should be forged in pranks and banter, while women are instructed to take the serious stuff - problems, worries and secrets - to their female friends.

The Risk of an All-Female Line Up

The BBC's head of entertainment Danny Cohen insisted that he will put an end to all-male comedy panel shows, but I'm not entirely convinced its for the right reasons. Will the booking of more female panelists be seen as an honest recognition of the person's ability or simply an attempt to appease a growing movement?

Ladies, I'm a feminist and I will actively fight our cause till my boobs hit the floor and I breathe my last breath through my Chanel lipstick but oh my goodness am I embarrassed by your behaviour lately.

Feminism Is Not About Female Behaviour

Victoria Sadler | Posted 26.04.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Victoria Sadler

When oh when will men stop "correcting" women on their feminism? It is not demeaning to women, how they choose to represent themselves. It is demeaning though, and extraordinarily patronising in the most perversely ironic of ways, for a man to appropriate feminism to his side of the argument to "correct" female behaviour.

Why Benedict Is Wrong to Censor His Cumberbitches

Victoria Sadler

The Cumberbitches. That's what the most devoted fans called themselves. I actually liked it. I thought it was great word play, sharp, instantly recognisable and just a little bit in your face. And as soon as the term was coined, it went viral as quickly as 'credit crunch.'

It is clear that all these movements have had a huge impact in raising awareness of these women's groups' agendas, regularly hitting the front pages and attracting high level support. As someone who works with companies to create communications strategies to support their business objectives, I wondered what lessons could be learnt to create more engaging campaigns.

Feminists Just Want to Fight

Women have so many things exclusively for their own gender: Women's Hour, a Women's Book Prize; the Top 100 Business Women, the Top 100 Powerful Women, Business Woman of the Year, the list goes on and on. I think it is time for the pink corner to recognise part of being British is our ability to poke fun at ourselves. That our differences make us interesting.

The Peculiar Erotic Appeal of Katie Hopkins

Pete Cashmore | Posted 16.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Pete Cashmore

In my time as a journalist, I have done some difficult things. I've flown into an active war zone dressed as Santa Claus, drove around London in a limousine while trying to handle a live turkey, and attempted to coax usable quotes out of a truculent, jet-lagged, visibly bored Chuck D. But now I am going to attempt the most difficult task of all - persuading you that Katie Hopkins is sexy.

The Novel, And Why Men Fear It

Jason Holmes | Posted 31.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jason Holmes

All that can be stated with any certainty is that Joe Public is currently enjoying the fruits of 70 years of peacetime. He wants for nothing; not food, water, nor easy loving. Sensorially, the totality of his life is catered for with a click of a mouse. Novels are seen as difficult excursions that can only tax unprepared minds.

Feminism Means Freedom, Choice and Equality, but We Also Need Self-Respect and Sisterly Love

I've called myself many things in public - a binge eater, an addict, a perfectionist, a workaholic, to name but a few - but I've never called myself a feminist. It's only now that I'm starting to wonder why.

What Does Modern Day Feminism Mean?

Christina Sweeney-Baird | Posted 22.06.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Christina Sweeney-Baird

The fact is that there is a dearth of women, at all levels of society, willing to go ahead and define themselves as feminists. Why is feminism seen by many as, at best, unnecessary, and at worst, terrifying? At its core feminism is simply the belief that all women should be treated equally. No controversy there for a rational human being. So where is the problem?
