Women are complex creatures and whilst some would be mortified at the idea of splitting a bill down the middle others take great offence to the suggestion that they would be paid for or 'treated' to coin a less suggestive phrase.

Why Do We Find It So Difficult to Be Happy With the Skin We're In?

It would be easy for me to say that I wish I had a smaller nose, no lines on my face, and a thinner torso. But if I had all those things, would my life be suddenly improved? No. Because those things don't define me. They don't affect the way I live.

Redefining the Engineering Brand

It's clear that engineering's brand is holding our profession back and could be putting off the brightest young minds from joining us, man or woman. Our poor image is based on the misconceptions people have of what an engineer does and how they should look.

Women May Be Under-represented at Davos but Theirs Are the Loudest Voices When It Comes to Calling for Gender Equality

Cherie Blair | Posted 29.01.2015 | UK

Debate over the level of female participation at global events like the WEF is, of course, important, but we must also look beyond the figures. We must remember that those women who are being heard on such stages are having an enormous impact. Many of the sessions and events I attended at this year's WEF addressed issues of equal opportunity, diversity and women's empowerment - and it was notable that many of these conversations were being driven by women with a real sense of hope and determination.

Why are men so terrified of a strong woman that they will resort to threatening to use stolen photos of her to keep her down? A weak man threatens a woman, not a strong man.

I'm a Feminist, Hear Me Roar!

For some reason, society has deemed the word "feminism" as a negative concept. Since when did the desire to live in a society that respects gender equality become an offence?

Feminist Dad

As a middle-aged man I never felt feminism had anything to do with me. It was the woman's battle for equality. Whilst I may have agreed with their ethos and end goals it was, and always would be their fight. It was only when listening to Emma Watson's amazing speech to the UN that I realised how wrong I was.

Feminism and the Beyonce Problem

Neil Simpson | Posted 06.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle

Queen Bey recently displayed her feminist credentials in neon lights at the MTV Video Music Awards. She's a great medium to deliver the feminist message, but does it matter that she clearly benefits from people objectifying her (not to mention benefits from being married to a rapper who made millions singing about bitches, hoes and pimpin')?

The Greatest Trick of All Time

Whether it's campaigners receiving death threats, an actress being harassed for hours in New York, mass kidnappings, genital mutilation, unequal pay, or a programmer receiving death threats over a false allegation of attempted media influence, women seem to get a raw deal in life. It's puzzling that there are so many guys out there that still have such a warped view of what it means to be a man.

My Dad, the Feminist

You actually called yourself a Feminist the other day and I couldn't have been more surprised or prouder. I asked you if you'd refer to yourself as a Feminist and you said "Yes I'm a Feminist- unreservedly. As a proselytising libertarian, I believe in freedom, equality and the rights of all men, which includes women". I thought- wow, that's my dad. The Feminist. My hero.

When Did Feminism Become Weird?

Kat Lister | Posted 23.12.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Kat Lister

I find Gwyneth Paltrow's goop website a bit weird or Donny Osmond's wig on last weeks Strictly Come Dancing, but feminism itself? If indeed there is something unnatural or unearthly about this so-called 'crossroads' we hashtag-feminists are tweeting at, is it right to finger-blame an entire movement? I'm not sure that it is, really.

Beyond Pop Feminism

Embracing feminism requires more than labelling oneself as a feminist. The use of the word feminism becomes meaningless unless actions correspond to what the concept seeks to achieve: gender equality.
