Over the past two years, no black actors or actresses have been nominated for Oscars. And over the past decade there has only been 18 black nominees, which amounts to just 9 percent of all acting nominees.
From my experience, these billionaires will be well informed individuals who donate substantial sums to charity every year. I have nothing but admiration for what many of them have achieved, but goodness I would like to get them on a coach and take them on a magical mystery tour, sharing some of the sights I have witnessed in Africa.
I was often critical of the former Equalities Minister over what happened on her watch. That Maria Miller has emerged as an 'X' passports champion is surreal given the history. Did she really not know about the sham policy review?
For those who've never been involved in the struggles that led us to where we are today, it's never too late. It might not always be obvious, but to repeat what Stonewall keeps saying - because ultimately they are right - there's still work to do.
I want to raise my boys to be feminists or should I re-name that equalists? And really, I mean "we" want to raise them as such, and not just "I" who wants to do this, as husband and I are on the same page with this one.
For the second year in a row, there are will be no black, Asian or minority ethnic actors that win an Oscar - because the 20-strong list of nominees in 2016 is entirely white.
There are some feminine rituals that I will never rid myself of. I believe that feminism is fluid and accepts all changes that have to be made. I live in a society that is basically founded on patriarchy and sexist oppression. Adjusting to make your own life a little easier is not selling out. Reform and re-structure is also a form of revolution.
At midnight last night, the House of Commons Women and Equalities Select Committee released its report on Transgender Equality. Chaired by Maria Miller, evidence gathering ran to five oral sessions and over 200 written submissions...
Yesterday morning I heard that David Bowie had died of cancer, aged 69. Yesterday afternoon I spent a grateful and contented hour walking and talking with my darling Dad. He is convalescing from an operation to remove a cancerous tumour, he is 69, thankfully he's going to be OK.
In the course of my campaign work I've received numerous responses expressing similar sentiment from minsters and senior civil servants from different government departments. It is a dismissive response and conveys a message that we are unimportant as individuals, that our situation is hopeless and that our welfare does not really matter.
I have worked for more than 20 years to achieve legal and social recognition that others can take for granted. I campaign upon a principle of legitimate identity as a fundamental human right...
For anyone who has an impairment that impacts on their ability get around easily, the concept of access is so much more than just getting into a place. Sure a world with as many ramps as steps would be a dream, but we also need what I would consider obvious, provision like toilets we can easily get into and use without endangering our safety.
I want the world to be a better place for my children, and their friends, to grow up. And I'm angry that, right now, I've lost faith in my generation to make that happen.My anger is valid and it is justified, and next time someone asks me if I'm angry, I'll have something to reply with: "Yes I am angry. And why aren't you?"
If you see what I see, but you don't feel what I feel, and you're happy to shrug your shoulders and unquestioningly enjoy your comfortable and privileged existence - because if you're able to sit in the warm and read this on a computer you're one of a very, very lucky few - then I'm sorry but I don't have the words to explain to you why human rights matter.
Of all the media coverage surrounding the COP21 talks on Youth and Future Generation day there is one slightly alternative hashtag that fills me with excitement: #ItsOurFuckingFuture
I've always worried about my girls growing up in an unequal world but up until recently have never had the same concerns for my son.
