It was hard to beat Kay Burley's response ('I'm sure your mother is incredibly proud of you, Dylan. I know I would be') but this is a poem about the prank and how it felt symptomatic of a much wider issue.
As older women we need to take collective responsibility, talk ourselves up and stop chasing unrealistic ideals. We need to believe it's okay to look and act our age and it's not that horrifying. We need to get off the dance floor and sit this one out.
Crisis may seem a little alarmist. Maybe it is, but probably not. The Enlightment taught us that there exists no better way for us to accrue knowledge about the world than the dispassionate, evidence-driven approach of the scientific method and, conversely, no bigger obstacle to progress than ideology and dogma.
It seems a lot of people really, REALLY don't get what 'consent' means. From the famous "not everybody needs to be asked prior to each insertion" to the student that (allegedly) thought he'd surprise his partner with some non consensual BDSM to that fucking song to almost every damn comment on any article by anyone that suggests that yes means yes; it seems people really have a problem understanding that before you have sex with someone, and that's every time you have sex with them, make sure they want to have sex with you.
I understand we can't all be perfect - I'm completely with Roxane Gay when she says it's better to be 'a bad feminist, than no feminist at all'. But I for one know that for all my blogging, I haven't contributed enough to concrete change, and I am determined to join a wave of feminism committed to tangible results.
This is not an impossible dream. About 70 countries have proportionally more women in their Parliaments than the UK. It can be done, we only need 177 more female MPs from a population of 32 million women. We don't want our daughters and granddaughters to be fighting the same old battle for fair representation.
We are so excited to be part of the BBC Three Comic Relief documentary, Stop Cutting Our Girls: A Comic Relief Special. We have been on a journey trying to publicise FGM. To go from learning about it amongst ourselves in a little room to talking about it on national TV is really exciting and we're all really proud of ourselves.
A slogan like "Girls Rule" seems little more than a lie in this context. It implies that women leaders are respected, listened to, and rewarded for their hard work, talent, and intelligence - when that is clearly not the case. Perhaps the slogan "Girls Rule!" was created as a way of hiding the sad reality of gender inequality.
International Women's Day is my favourite day of the year, because it's a special occasion where we get to celebrate how fucking cool it is to be a woman. I personally do this everyday in my head anyway; a mini-me dancing ethereally within the confines of my mind to a Beyonce mixtape.
Our campaign is one led by women most affected by the ongoing austerity which is tearing families from their homes and making countless people street-homeless. We are directly challenging our Labour council and the wider government. We're angry, organised and are demanding change!
Anyone who has either experienced a period or knows anything about them knows that there is nothing luxurious about the feeling of menstrual cramps, or discovering your purse is empty when you've run out of tampons. Without affordable sanitary products, those women who menstruate are prevented from leading a normal life, both in public and in private.
Enter the British men of the London Underground. With their sharpened suits and iPhones in hand, they look every bit like a Chinese girl's dream. Part of this attraction is their evocation of wealth and fashion. Then add in the Brit factor.
Global policy frameworks may feel a long way from the realities of women's lives. Yet these frameworks lay out fundamental rights and freedoms, and are an important tool for women's rights organisations to advocate for improvements in the lives of women.
Last week I heard Julie Bindel speak at Challenging the Campus Censors. She was charismatic and funny and she's spent decades campaigning against violence towards women. I feel privileged to have heard her speak - it's not an opportunity everyone gets.
Celia Imrie's comments in Glamour villainise women - like me - who hate being catcalled. But we don't need to "lighten up" about catcalling, we need to shout about it and tell the world that IT'S NOT OKAY.
As women, we now have the power to influence the outcome of the election, and a responsibility for it. We need to translate equal rights to vote into equal representation. Without this, policies are skewed in the interests and the image of those that govern - it is government of the few, by the few, for the few.
