Ava Vidal

I have never been one to shy away from talking about personal experiences in my live shows, I am now encouraging other women to do the same. I have experienced sexism that is not just every day, but institutional and cultural at every level. Rather than be defeated by this, I am embarking on a project that will empower women facing the same to talk about their experience, and hopefully be part of making a change.

Let us move from the typical stigma of being an "average" size, and let us focus on being a size HEALTHY. The smallest I have ever been in my life was at the age of 17 and that was a resound size 12! Fast forward to now being a size 16/18 and a few pounds heavier, this beach body question always resurfaces.

This Is The 'Truth' About The Notting Hill Carnival

Grant Feller | Posted 25.01.2017 | UK
Grant Feller

This is the 'hidden' agenda that lies behind the race to knock Carnival off the streets on which it was born and into some soulless central London park. Another nail in the coffin for the capital city's rich tapestry of working class and immigrant-led heritage. Let them eat plantains, just not on my newly-painted doorstep.
