I'm applauding Gary and Lily for their words and actions. I wish more people with a public profile would challenge prejudice and stand up for the most vulnerable members of our society. At this particular, political moment, campaigners need all the help they can get.

If ever a fight did not live up to it's hype, it was this one. The build-up was extraordinary. The Donald sought to take charge of the accusations of misogyny that had been levelled at him all week by holding an extraordinary and unexpected press conference with four women who presumably had a tale to tell of their treatment at the hands of Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton's Team Needs To Act - Fast

Herein lies the problem in this case. Hillary's PR team have all the facts. They know her medical history and they know that this kind of collapse may well be a possibility at any time. So why didn't they have a proper statement ready? But more than this, why have they left it so long, many months, to really tackle the growing questions about Mrs Clinton's health?

Hillary Clinton's Been Talking About The USA's Mental Health Parity Law. What Would An English One Look Like?

Gregory Smith | Posted 06.09.2016 | UK Politics

The current political prominence that mental health is enjoying is both welcome and meaningful. But promises of improvement have a habit of slipping, and the NHS' current parlous financial situation could plausibly lead to mental health tottering backwards instead of taking the leaps forward it needs.

Who Run the World? Girls!

I believe that as women we should give Theresa May an opportunity to prove she is what this country needs. Still, a second female Prime Minister should excite us. We may not be exactly where we want to be but we're on our way there. Surely each small step we take towards progress is a step worth celebrating.

Donald Trump and the Far Right Legacy - Let's Catch Ourselves Before It's Too Late

Nathan Coyle | Posted 04.07.2016 | UK Politics

You could argue that is already happening but it's as important as ever that we use the Brexit fallout as medium to have a long hard look in the mirror and constructively address the issues that divide us. Let's catch ourselves before it gets beyond hope and use Donald Trump as an example of what is not wanted here.

Boys Will Be Boys? (Or, Why Women Are Not Responsible for the Misbehaviour of Men)

We must teach both our girls and our boys that each of us is responsible for our own actions. No matter our gender. And whether it is at school, or work, or in taxis, we must therefore seek to tackle behaviour that is unacceptable, not marginalize those who suffer it.

No one ever thought Sanders would get this far, and there are 49 more chances for Bernie to eek out a victory in what should be an extremely close Primary. How the Establishment would sweat at the thought of a Bernie-Jeremy partnership.

Talkin' 'bout a Revolution: Younger Voters, Protest and Change

Gavin Devine | Posted 05.02.2016 | UK Politics
Gavin Devine

In all probability the remorseless logic of deep Clintonian pockets, impressive electoral organisation and the fact that 'youth' voters rarely follow through will grind down the Senator from Vermont in the end. But I really wish this wasn't so. I would love politics to start to address the very just complaints of millennials and by extension many others. We all need a change. ‎Here's hoping...

Woman. A term I struggle to compress to a singular word because across generations society has perpetually attempted to redefine the nature of my gender. Whether it is in our private lives or in the public eye, women have been conditioned to seek approval from elsewhere resulting in a feeling of inadequacy.
