The more I've become the kind of woman I want to be, both in and out of a relationship, the man in my life has become even more of the kind of man that I really appreciate...and he was pretty amazing to begin with!

The notion of food and eating is a complicated business, particularly for us females. It is probably one of the topics we discuss the most. A friend recently sent me an article that was depicting common girl thoughts and habits when it came to food. It made statements such as 'becoming emotional once you've finished your food',

We know that we women have a tendency to take on a little too much and Christmas often throws another dozen balls into our over-capacity juggling act! So the question is, how do we not just survive the Christmas season...but actually ensure that we ENJOY it?

The Reality of Masculine Masks

Claire Brummell

We all know that drag is most commonly associated with describing a man in women's clothing (before I get corrected here, yes I know that it is used the other way around too), but the real drag is a woman who is feminine on the inside and yet putting on a masculine mask.

So What's So Important About Femininity Anyway?

As important as our heels and handbags are (I worship at the altars of Blahnik and Choo whenever I can)...our obsession with gaining 'equality' with the boys is costing us...and while we might be aware of the symptoms...we're oblivious to the cause.

Taking away the basic freedom to choose a room arrangement from mature and democratically elected student groups such as Islamic societies will only seek to alienate Muslim students from social engagement by denying their right to religious freedom.  

Women's Football Atmosphere Is Completely Different

The only way the Women's game can be 'as good as the male game' is to treat it with the same respect rather than as a completely different sport. Of course the way the women play strategically is different, but it's still football!

Forever Failing at London Life (and Netball)

As an energetic pre-teen, I was convinced that I had the skills of a world-class goal shooter, menacing my opponents with my sharp eye and killer aim. I ruled the Doncaster courts, not even a palm in the face could come between the net and me.

Beatrice Piquer Durand

The technology industry can be stressful, but ultimately it is unique and exciting. Getting women involved in the industry starts at school. Girls should be encouraged to study STEM subjects and be advised that the technology sector is a viable one for them to move into. It is a great place to be.

How Not to Get Promoted: Ask for Work-Life Balance

Adele Barlow | Posted 30.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Adele Barlow

She knew that she didn't want to make partner. She knew that her health, family and ability to make a difference in the world were part of her definition of long-term success. Someday, she'd have the luxury of stepping back. But first, she wanted to build something up to step back from. She wanted to get promoted. And she wanted another promotion after that.

The reality is, whatever we are scared of and whatever the solution might be, we shouldn't force ourselves to do it and carry on regardless. Sometimes we need to look for alternatives or a way to discuss our fears and find somebody that is willing to help you resolve them.

Margaret Thatcher and the Misogynistic Protest

Claudia White | Posted 13.06.2013 | UK Universities & Education
Claudia White

I am deeply disturbed by the volume of misogynistic vitriol being spouted by certain members of the British public in the wake of Margaret Thatcher's death. What disturbs me the most is not that people are aggressively disagreeing with her politics, but that people are genuinely rejoicing at the death of another person - a mother and a grandmother.

Why aren't women allowing themselves to be proud to show off their mental capacity such as academic ability but have chosen the route of posing naked? After all, there are more women at university than men.

Lesbian AIDS

Scott Capurro

Comedy clubs have, for a long time, been a female's safe space. Not on stage, because of the pure misogyny of stand up, but off. A husband won't win that fight about offensiveness, so he keeps quiet, while women determine what's appropriate.

Re-framing Britain

Indra Adnan | Posted 09.10.2012 | UK
Indra Adnan

Against all my own expectations, the Olympic Games have emerged like unexpected blossom on a tree that only flowers erratically. When was the last time GB could stand so proudly tall? I'm reminded of the post war years when the response to the end of WW2 was to implement the Beveridge Report and build the welfare state. Am I comparing a few sporting triumphs to the construction of, amongst other things, the National Health Service? No - that would be pure bathos. But I am comparing a display of national character, where the choices that were made in a moment of coming together, were open, inclusive and dynamically forward looking.
