I don't need to tell you why this is a terrible thing but more women in advertising means more women in the workforce, more women represented fairly in the media and more women going on to become C-Suite, money making superheroes. If they drop out before they've signed their first contract the future looks bleak.
Despite what you may have read in the Sun, the Daily Mail or the ...
Co-authored with Maaike Engels Friday January 15th, on our last day of shooting for our documentary 'Calais: Welcome to the Jungle' we were attacked ...
Yesterday, I got Guido'd. Like having your photo posted on Redwatch or in the Daily Mail, this is something anyone politically active on the left may have to deal with at some point. Of course, being a young woman, the attack takes on a specific character...
Despite constant coverage of ISIS, known by their Arabic name as Daesh, Western media has overlooked the fact that a large proportion of their victims are ordinary Sunni Muslims - the very people they claims to represent. By doing this they are unwittingly aiding the narrative that Daesh is representing all Muslims against the West.
This year on The Huffington Post UK we've had a think about the Dia dos Namorados and have reimagined it from a different perspective. Our Making Modern Love series will look at what love really means to Britons in 2016. Built on the three themes of finding love, building love and losing love, the HuffPost UK will explore human stories to inspire, empower, entertain and inform our readers. We'll be chronicling the stories of those who've found love in a hopeless place, we'll be looking at why couples are obsessed with making their declarations of love go viral and touch on why you people should nurture all relationships, not just the romantic ones.
There is nothing anti-feminist about wanting to look good or be desired, for yourself or for male attention. But there is something wrong when a self-proclaimed feminist tells other women how to behave.
As a Labour politician it isn't often that I defend a Tory. Maria Miller's past misdemeanors over expenses have been dealt with, losing her Cabinet seat. That has nothing to do with the recent Commons report on gender identity. Littlejohn's attack is just another cheap and nasty 'character assassination' in a desperate effort to undermine the report's legitimate findings.
Like most women I have navigated most of my life through a smorgasbord of insults and 'compliments' regarding my body - more often than not comments that somehow compared my body to food. I had to learn fast what food types it was ok to be and what were definitely not.
Bella sets her camera up on a tripod, making sure to position it in front of a window to get the most light. She checks herself in the camera screen, brushes her hair behind her ears, and takes a deep breath.
The international response to what took place and what continues to take place is both a travesty and injustice. Hundreds of thousands of Innocent men, women and children fled to neighbouring countries such as Chad and Cameroon but more than 600,000 people remain displaced inside the country with many trapped inside enclaves they cannot escape.
We're still talking about it, but not many people in the Labour leadership seem to be listening. In 2020, Labour need to win 94 MPs to form a majority government of just two. The newly released Beckett report has pointed out a variety of reasons Labour lost in 2015, mainly that of the economy, immigration and welfare.
For years Liberty has argued that Schedule 7 - a breathtakingly broad and intrusive power to stop, detain, question and seize without suspicion that can be used against anyone travelling to, from or through the UK - is ripe for overuse and abuse. And yesterday, in a landmark victory for our free press, the Court of Appeal agreed with Liberty's intervention.
The underlying cause of last week's strike is not, it turns out, chronic NHS underfunding, inadequate workforce planning, or constant inflammatory sniping from Jeremy "nuclear option" Hunt. No, it's the women like me who are first flooding our medical schools, then popping out babies with impunity, and finally abandoning our patients for a lazy part-timer's life.
No liberal believes in absolute freedom. We restrict freedom of speech by outlawing incitement to violence or racial hatred, and we restrict freedom of movement by putting in place border controls. Liberals are not anarchists: they believe in the need for some kind of State structure to protect life and liberty.
In this job climate, it's not far-fetched to think that they might just opt for another applicant, who doesn't happen to have been embroiled in a court case. We need a logical, informed discussion around whether those accused of rape should be granted anonymity.
