Oxfam blame Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg's big bank accounts for everything from Brexit to Trump. They argue that increasing returns to those at the top is to blame for poverty at the bottom. And that we must fundamentally change our economic model to fix this. But it couldn't be further from the truth.
I am sure that Hillary's wish would be: May the new year 2017 and the subsequent years bring fairer days for the underprivileged women and girls. This wish should motivate all women's actions.
Integration is 'not a two way street' were the words of Dame Louise Casey earlier in the week as she provided follow up evidence to the House of Commons communities committee following the publication of her report on segregation and immigration into the UK.
When I was told I would be included in the Queen's New Year honours list, I thought I would write a blog reflecting on my career. Then I remembered that I find New Year reflections and forecasts dull and time-consuming. So, instead, here are the top things I would like to see change in relation to children and young people in the UK.
68 celebrities died in 2016. Over 56 million people died in total. So, the RIP posts spamming our Facebook walls are for 0.00012% of the people who actually passed in 2016.

This is when I truly understood intersectionality. It was naively racist of me to be outraged that the election result was down to sexism; it was far more down to racism. So how can I truly be fighting for equality of the sexes, if I do not fight for equality in all other aspects? Bluntly, I cannot.
Imagine an organisation that could advise parliament on improving human rights and monitor our national compliance with international treaties. An organisation that works across the public and private sectors to protect individuals from unequal treatment.

It is not only illegal under the Equality Act (2010) to turn someone like me away because they are travelling with an assistance dog, but it also can knock a visually impaired person's confidence and prevent them from doing everyday things like travel to work, or visit friends and family.

This year has focused in on the worst. It's easy to feel like you're surrounded by racism and misogyny. What already feels like the slowest progressio...
When I read the founding principle of International Men's Day (Saturday 19 November) I thought it was some kind of ridiculous joke. After all, highlighting 'the achievements of men' doesn't just happen just once a year - it happens every single day.
