The feeling that I can't shake is that she has been alienated by feminism and the stigma that surrounds it. I am happy to admit to being a feminist, because I have my own personal interpretation of its meaning. Obviously feminism stands for the freedom to choose, and choosing to be one should be included in that.
Cast your mind back to times before the internet, before you could send a picture of yourself, anywhere in the world, instantly to anyone you liked (and often for free). How many times were you able to share stories about your latest holiday, the band you've just seen, your future plans, a bad day at work or the amazing dinner you've just made?
Oxford and Cambridge Universities have an awful lot in common. And last week was no exception. By inviting polarising political figures from the left and the right - George Galloway and Marine Le Pen, respectively - both institutions reaffirmed what is at once perhaps the most sacred and the most imperilled of all our values: the freedom of speech.
Within Israel and within Gaza, there is madness on both sides. Yet greater than the mad minority are a majority who long for peace. Neither Israel nor Gaza need unquestioning support. They do not need more tribalism. Debate - honest, open and informed - is a far more powerful tool, a far more effective peacekeeper.
Politicians always assume that young people don't have a valid opinion. That they're not interested in decision-making, or politics, or the way the country is run. Well they are. And I am. And I see how much young people care every day of my life. There's a revolution happening at the moment - a movement of young people learning the power of free speech, and the importance of getting their voices heard on the issues that matter to them the most.
If you think about it, most of communication is visual rather that oral - it's far easier to understand what someone really means or feels when you can see them face-to-face, rather than talking to them over the phone. However, as we progress technologically, less-and-less time is spent face-to-face.
By common consent, President (Professor?) Obama's performance in last night's debate in Denver was lame and lacklustre. Where were his "zingers"? Why didn't he interject and interrupt to push back against Mitt Romney's omissions, exaggerations and half-truths? It could have been so different. Here are 10 questions that Obama could have thrown at his Republican opponent at various moments during the 90-minute debate.
As the first generation of children born free of segregation come of age, the August edition of BBC Africa Debate will explore race relations and inequality in South Africa over the last 18 years. A panel of 18 year olds - part of the 'born-free' generation will discuss their experiences growing up in modern South Africa.
At present, state education does not match up to private schools in terms of academic provision. Until they do, parents who are lucky enough to be able to make the choice must make a value judgment. However, once you've made your choice, don't let your decision distort your take on reality à la Murray and O'Farrell.
