Hanna Gunnarsson | Posted 27.02.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Hanna Gunnarsson

Arquette confirms my fear of becoming a mother. A fear that has led to my non-normative decision in not having children; a decision that is constantly contested by society, my mother every time we Skype, and none the least by myself.

When I first started running I used to stop and walk if I saw anyone I knew, or had to pass busy places. I would also stop and walk up hills through fear of having to stop half way anyway.

What Does Neuroscience Say is Wrong With HR?

Amy Brann

When you look at some organisations you see core principles cascading through everything they do. This tends to be more likely in a small or an entrepreneurial company but it doesn't have to be limited to here. It is undesirable from a brain perspective to have conflicting messages coming you from every direction.

You can tweet, blog, bitch and bore people senseless at dinner parties on how to improve the world but really in my opinion, what has to change first, is our thinking. The conflict is in our minds and we project onto the world as if something out there is making us feel demented.

Dear Hollywood...Where Are the Women?

Corrina Antrobus | Posted 26.02.2015 | UK Entertainment
Corrina Antrobus

On screen women should be heroes and villains and navigate narratives that reassure us that the crap we go through isn't just us and we can aspire to be more than just a Bond girl. We need to gatecrash this boy's club that Hollywood is and encourage more females to make movies that tell our stories.

I wear a smile as my shield, maintain a sense of humour for a coat of armour, and a strong fighting spirit is my sword. This is how I battle each day with two diseases; one rare and one extremely common. My life is no picnic, but one thing for sure, it's not dull!

If I could have things any other way, I would not choose to spend so much time planning my meals, working out my feelings to avoid potential anxiety attacks later on in the day, and all the money I and my parents have spent on therapy over the years.

Pinkification: Am I a Failed Feminist?

Helen Redding | Posted 26.02.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Helen Redding

Did I do wrong? I don't think so. Am I betraying my feminist tendencies? Possibly. It's highly unlikely that our afternoon will leave her wanting to be a glamour model rather than a rocket scientist. I doubt that she will be left thinking looks are singularly more important than anything else.

Maybe it's just time to admit that flying isn't for me. I'm not going to disembark fresh faced after a peaceful eight hour nap and I'm sure as hell not going to learn to stomach crappy airline food.

Last night, getting off the tube, I was accused by a group of drunk, loud-mouthed, relatively posh boys of being a 'yummy mummy'. I had heard them shout, "Welcome to middle England!" as the train pulled into the station, followed by, "I bet she's married to an advertising executive!" (wtf?)
