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.

Many of us reading this are living in a country where there is freedom of the press and free speech. Two basic rights which, tragically, have been denied to millions around the world. So if media houses have this freedom, let's see them use it responsibly, without relying on a trending hashtag, or a sprinkle of stardust to make it part of their agenda. Let's not wait for #Darfur or #Dalori to trend before we hear stories like these on our news channels.

The Saudi Royals: Not People to Do Business With

I understand the need for diplomatic niceties to be observed. That's why when a royal head of state dies, I'm perfectly happy for one of our royals to attend the funeral. But why on earth do we have to send the prime minister as well? ... Wouldn't it be nice if, like Germany, we could halt our arms sales to what is undoubtedly one of the nastiest regimes on the planet. And when the new king dies - he's already 79 - perhaps we could send Prince Charles on his own. I'm sure he'd manage just fine.
