Where did all that diversity go, and why wasn't it possible to retain it? In particular, how come I began my scientific studies surrounded by women, yet these days regularly find myself being the sole woman presenting my work at scientific workshops?
When Daniel, a 64-year-old with Down's syndrome, began getting irritable and depressed several years ago, his GP and family associated his behavioural changes with his learning disability...
The success of the so called '1%' - bankers, financial speculators and entrepreneurs who control so much of modern wealth - is clearly visible. But what should the response of politicians be to growing inequality? How can we reconcile the obvious need to grow the economy while ensuring the weakest and most vulnerable in society do not get left behind?
One morning last year, my year 13 form tutor told us she wasn't a feminist. Silence descended. Noticing the distinct lack of approving nods and the much more emphatic shiftiness and thumb-twiddling before her, our teacher hastily added "but obviously I believe in gender equality." She couldn't have paid us to keep quiet.
This is what Wilson Ayala Romero tells me when I ask him about his work: "My colleague had a fall at work; she split her head open, hurt her arm and ...
Women have shed some of the shackles of inequality, only to be bound my new ones of image obsession. Yet the investment is disproportionately high compared to their interests and desires. They claim that their confidence drops by 80% on reading a magazine and 60% feel that glam selfies make them feel bag.
I'm a 26 year old woman and feel that something has to change if once again, I've woken from a night out with the girls to feel my self worth has taken yet another knock.
Livingstone may have been the ugly icing on the cake this week, but it was a cake made and enjoyed by many others in political life. Decades of progress in race relations and equality are being damaged by casual and misplaced agendas. It's been a miserable week in British politics. I keep thinking, I keep wishing, surely we can do better than this?
It is not often that my two main interests in life collide. Now they have, but for all the wrong reasons. I'm an employment and discrimination lawyer, but I am also a lover of the beautiful game.
We live in an amazingly diverse society, surely our politics should reflect that? Luckily more and more people are agreeing - but there's still some small changes we need to make to get there.
Today there is a hustings in London organised by the biggest disability charities. It looks to be an excellent event. The organisers have been meticulous about enabling the participation by providing easy-read information, documentation in Braille and agreed timings. I won't be there because as a candidate for a new and different party I have been deemed ineligible to participate... This has so many echoes of the space in which I existed with Grace in those early years that it is tough to find myself here again.
Girls have Emma Watson, Beyoncé, Gloria Steinem, Caitlin Moran, Taylor Swift, Malala Yousafzai. But is there a male voice that speaks quite as loudly, and in quite such a populist way, to make this generation of young men proud feminists?
All in all we're all talking about a subject that needs more awareness and more ambassadors. Having role models at senior levels will help and hopefully over time the stigma will fade.
There are dinosaurs stalking the corridors. They are faceless, unaccountable, they have far too much power and they are harming trans* people.
First, I've a personal interest to declare. My twin sister Jenny, who died nearly 20 years ago when we were 27, had cerebral palsy. It's been part of the fabric of my life as the non-disabled twin. I certainly wouldn't need an awareness month to bring it to my attention.
If you are giving someone a lower rate of pay because of their gender, that is wrong. Djokovic may say it's based on popularity of players, but it's gender he is using as the dividing line, not gate receipts.
