If we stop defining each other by what we are not and start defining ourselves by what we are - can all be freer and this is what HeForShe is about. It's about freedom. I want men to take up this mantle. So their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so that their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human too - reclaim those parts of themselves they abandoned and in doing so be a more true and complete version of themselves... I am inviting you to step forward, to be seen to speak up, To be the he for she. And to ask yourself if not me, who, if not now when.
Can you believe four out of 10 of us aged 18-29 live at home with our parents because we simply can't afford to move out? For me, one of the most frustrating things is that some of us can actually afford monthly mortgage payments but we can not simply get together the thousands of pounds needed and expected for a deposit, even as a first time buyer.
For years it's been assumed that 16 - 25 year old viewers - widely considered the target audience of shows like this - are only interested in watching the younger stars get boozed up and fall into a showmance. But this series in particular has shown that younger viewers are actually a lot more discerning than they are given credit for.
It is now more dangerous to be a woman than a soldier in modern conflict... Throughout history, the abuse of women has been seen as an inevitable by-product of conflict and it wasn't until the late 90s when the international community recognised the use of sexual violence as a crime of war and against humanity.
So as you have probably heard. An 'artist' named Brett Bailey thinks it is creative and innovative to showcase black humans in a mock zoo for the entertainment of white 'liberals' at the Barbican Centre... This 21st Century recreation of the very real human zoos is disgusting, deplorable and aims to do none of the things its supporters claim it does. I'll explain why.
This week I went to see my friends' band, on the eve of their debut album launch. It was an industry graduation, with them playing inside legendary record shop, Rough Trade (west). I know they are my friends and I sound like a proud mum at parents evening, but this band is a teeny, weeny bit special.
Stevie obviously likes Billie, but there's so much history and unfinished business with Stephanie. He couldn't stop smiling when he saw her. Ouch. What is he going to do? If he knew what was best for him he would politely cool things off with Billie. You can cut the sexual tension between Stephanie and him with a knife. Will he make the right decision?
The problem is that the original concept of "celeb" reality shows was to mix a set of different "celebs" together so that you could see what they were really like behind their public facades. In Celebrity Big Brother almost everyone is "famous" for being in their own reality shows... This means that we already know what they are like. That is the point of the shows they are already on. It's very confusing.
In September 1994 Elizabeth Wurtzel's first book Prozac Nation was published and a new era of confessional-style memoir was born. Further than that, Elizabeth's frank and unsympathetic portrayal of her battles with depression was revolutionary in a way that now, even 20 years later, we're still getting used to...
It dwells on me as I stare at the Internet version of myself, I don't want to delete my past entirely... People change. People can be more than one thing. We all deserve 'the right to be forgotten' not to censor our mistakes, so our Google personas don't solely dictate who we are. I guess writing about reinvention is the easy part; it's fighting for it in reality that's the challenge.
I have always maintained for some of our swimmers being the best in Britain is the be all and end all - but this does not apply anymore. This year, this is changing... After the Commonwealth Games and now the Europeans, we have several events where we have five people in the top 20 in the world. Now that's real depth.
