I've lived all over the UK but South Wales is where my heart is.I was born in Caerphilly and grew up in Cardiff, I love going to the rugby, scoffing Welsh cakes and going out with mates. Cardiff is a vibrant city, we Welsh are some of the funniest, kindest people I have met and I am proud to say I am Welsh and call Cardiff my home.

How Facebook Sexualises And Polices The Female Body

Suppressing women's sexuality is misogyny. The implication that an 'impure' female body will lead to unsafe sex is misogyny and feeds into victim blaming. The message that sex is bad is problematic in itself, leading to a lack of discussion and education.

I'm Cheering for the First President BOGOF

As a Brit and a Boomer (like Hillary) and a woman deeply opposed to both snobbery and misogyny, I am rooting for a second President Clinton and a first President BOGOF.

The Warped Gender Politics of the Red Light District

Joanna Taylor | Posted 09.08.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Joanna Taylor

The Red Light District is effectively a safe space for creepy men; a place where they feel comfortable to openly air their sexist behaviours and leer at women because, being dominated by other creepy men, it feels like their territory. But I hold out hope that their backward views on masculinity and femininity are being eroded...

Kanye, Taylor, Kim and the Celebration of Misogyny Through Song

Laura Williamson | Posted 02.08.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Laura Williamson

The most bizarre thing isn't that Kim Kardashian West thinks it's okay to call women 'bitches'. It's so much bigger than that. It's that this acceptance toward casual misogyny in music is the norm. I'm a feminist, yet I listen to this music, know the lyrics to this music, and still will after I've written this article. It's almost like it's the last safe place for men to abuse women and completely get away with it.

Trolly McTrollFace and the Temple of Misogyny

At first, I was genuinely upset, hurt and angry. After a while however, such feelings turned into bemusement as I scrolled through my Twitter feed and encountered the same dogmatic attitudes being hurled at me over and over again, interspersed amongst the news that Hillary had secured the Democrat's Presidential nomination.

Through the Eyes of Another

Mark Bryce

I'm not suggesting for one minute this type of behaviour is typical of all men, it's not, but we must surely accept some collective responsibility for dealing with it. To call it out for what it is. To lead by example and to teach our children that equality isn't just about equal pay and opportunities, fundamentally it's about respect.

How to Watch Films as a Feminist

Kate Delaney | Posted 02.06.2016 | UK Entertainment
Kate Delaney

With great feminist knowledge, comes great responsibility. No longer will subliminal sexism go unnoticed in your favourite TV series, no longer can you re-watch childhood movies with ignorance at their underlying misogyny and no longer can you appreciate a cheeky rom-com without feeling like you've betrayed your own kind.

In Defence of the F-Word

One morning last year, my year 13 form tutor told us she wasn't a feminist. Silence descended. Noticing the distinct lack of approving nods and the much more emphatic shiftiness and thumb-twiddling before her, our teacher hastily added "but obviously I believe in gender equality." She couldn't have paid us to keep quiet.

Free Speech, Not Hate Speech

Free speech is certainly the zeitgeist of 2016, with Spiked Online leading a campaign against students' unions. As a staunch supporter of free speech, and the lead representative at LSE Students' Union, we've seen some controversies that have portrayed our approach as hostile, as opposed to welcoming of this as a value.

Why You Must Fight Tyson Fury, the 18 Stone Weakling

I believe in free speech and uphold Fury's right to say what he wants. I am less supportive of a public-funded body who choose to reinforce hate-filled views via an awards nomination but I am glad I have a right to respond.

Don't Make Tyson Fury a Free Speech Martyr

So don't worry about Tyson Fury. He's an unreconstructed moron whose opinions count for nothing. And if you think I'd say any of this to his face, you must be out of your mind.

Yiannopoulos Should Not Be Banned From Bristol, He Should Be Ignored

Ben Parr | Posted 23.10.2015 | UK Universities & Education
Ben Parr

I think I've done it. You see, the feminist society at Bristol Uni seems to have a problem that they are unable to solve. They are utterly aghast at the University's journalism society inviting a speaker- Milo Yiannopoulos- to give a lecture, because Mr Yiannopoulos has made some pretty offensive, misogynist and ignorant remarks.

We Need to Stop the Online Women Haters

We should disregard the perverse arguments - made by some - that the ability to abuse and threaten others is a free speech matter and nothing should be done - because this issue is actually about the limiting of free speech.

How I Accepted the Fact That Male Objectification Will Help Fight Misogyny

I am of the opinion that to achieve true equality, whether it be related to race, gender, anything, a level playing field where the same rules apply to everyone is fundamental and needs to be established. That's fair enough, right?

Jed Allen Made a Choice to Kill - This Is a War on Women

Ending Victimisation and Blame | Posted 27.05.2016 | UK
Ending Victimisation and Blame

Janet Jordon is not responsible for her own murder or that of her daughter and partner. Jed Allen made a choice to kill his mother and sister. He made this choice within a context of endemic male violence against women and girls. These types of murders are not isolated or tragic. They are simply the extension of patriarchal control over women's bodies and lives.

#BlameOneNotAll: I Want a Nobel Peace Prize for Not Kicking Random Men in the Goolies

Rather than spending the next 40 years holding ticker tape parades and award ceremonies for every single woman who did not commit an act of violence in the last 24 hours, we could just point out the #BlameOneNotAll campaign, created by media company Mintified, is just another pile of misogynistic drivel
