We think women entrepreneurs are special. And today - on Women's Entrepreneurship Day - I'd like to take a moment to explain why we should be celebrating these unsung heroes of development.
Any and all of these goals can be applied to the fashion industry; as one of the biggest employers, producers, and polluters of any global industry, fashion touches everyone - from those who make it to those who wear it. As such, we all have a part to play in ensuring it becomes a fairer, cleaner industry.
Dysability basically means a difficulty in ability, and I believe this is more in line with the social model. Impairments are the biological differences we have that are mostly perceived to negatively affect our function.
Never again, we all said. Yet here we are, facing the greatest refugee crisis since World War Two and we are once again talking about shutting our doors to the people who need our help the most... Our rejection and maltreatment of refugees plays into the hands of ISIS who rely on any anti-Muslim sentiment in the West to boost recruitment and incite anger. A large number of IS fighters in Syria and Iraq are from the West. We understand why people are scared. We are scared too, but so are the refugees. And turning them away is not the solution. We are all victims of terror now. We should let it unite us not divide us.
Disabled people don't need praise for accomplishing something that a non-disabled person would, too. They, just like everyone else, should be praised for doing something they enjoy; anyone should be given praise for doing something they enjoy and not letting their own personal difficulties stop them.
I was in London at the time, I think it was late evening, when my dad called and said that security forces had taken my sister. That was the first time I knew anything about her protest. My parents, who live in Tehran, were in shock. My sister had first been arrested outside the national stadium for protesting against an old rule that banned women from attending sporting events alongside men "for their own safety".
This research comes at a watershed moment for the relationship between charities and government. Life to the Full represents our plea for both to be ambitious - ambitious for what they can achieve when they work together, and ambitious for this too-long-overlooked group of children.
Violence is a public health issue and should be treated, not punished. A person does not just become violent, the behaviour is the physical expression of a deeper problem, the only way to cure violence is to understand its root causes.
So, Mr Cameron, you and your Government have some tough decisions to make in the next week. As you put the finishing touches to the spending review, heed the warning signs in social care and remember the benefits that excellent social care brings to the NHS, the economy and the people who need it.
As part of the Tommy's #misCOURAGE campaign to encourage people to speak up, I am sharing my experience in the hope that it might make at least one other woman feel less isolated, and to show my support for others who have lost a pregnancy.
We need to be prepared to adapt and move out of harm's way where ever we can at the coast, as 'holding the line' is going to become more difficult in the face of rising sea levels and increased storminess.
The existing trend of disrespecting refugee law while ignoring abuse and torture is no longer acceptable. Valletta must not be remembered as the place where the outsourcing of Europe's dirty work was rubber-stamped.
Dysability and Disability is more complex than it has ever been in the UK, where the next step in our liberation is not about making laws, but learning to help ourselves and push our own boundaries as well as those of others.
My half term holiday has taught me that refugees are people just like you and I, a simple fact often over looked. These people do not want to leave their communities; they are living in sub-human conditions and are coming to the UK in search of a humane, dignified life and to live without fear of death or persecution...
Today we are facing the greatest humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. There are more than two million children who have been made refugees as a result of the ongoing conflict in Syria. That's two million stories of children like Rose. And their lives matter - because if those children's lives don't matter then how can my child's life matter. If those children aren't important then my child can't be important. Either every child's life matters or none of them do. So in sharing their stories, I'm also asking you to take notice and to do something about this. We have to step up to this humanitarian crisis and we have to act.
The veteran population of the UK is declining rapidly. In 2005, there were 4.8million veterans in the UK. Today, there are 2.83million, and in 2020 there will be 2.48million. In the face of such significant demographic change, the Armed Forces charity sector will have to evolve in some fundamental ways.
