Inspired by the letter to Santa from all women, I've taken the liberty of writing a list of New Year's resolutions for women.
Why should a woman be blamed and 'punished' due to the way she dresses? Are these men saying that they lack any form of self control? Surely this speaks volumes about those men if they cannot resist their sexual urges - that is a simply ludicrous and pathetic excuse for committing such an offence towards a woman.
The message is clear - "teach your sons better". If a girl does not want to have sex, do not rape her. I think it highlights just how important education is in overcoming such an incident and ensuring it does not happen again.
Why are SMEs ahead in terms of female directors? This could be because more subtle skills such as diplomacy, collaboration and trustworthiness can be noticed in a smaller organisation, whereas in bigger companies it is all too often those who shout loudest who make the fastest progress.
William Cooper, an Aboriginal elder of the Yorta Yorta tribe in Australia led a march to the German consulate in Melbourne in December of 1938 to protest Germany's persecution of the Jews.
We have been very clear that we will protect religious organisations that do want to conduct same sex marriage and as things stand that includes the Church of England.
Perhaps Carla Bruni can be seen as the epitome of the successful young modern women, or should I say fortunate woman who can has full access to childcare, an indisposable income, a choice of different homes and the luxury of not having to work.
The latest IPA (Institute of Practitioners in Advertising) census reports that the proportion of senior women (Chair, CEO or MD) has risen from a paltry 13.5% last year to a more respectable 21.5% this year. That's an impressive shift albeit from a frankly astonishingly low base.
Personally, I believe there will be one day women Bishops, it's just a shame it's not happening now. It could have been such a historical moment; and yes, it's historical but in exposing an ugly truth.
It would be fantastic to see Catholic bishops, Muslim clerics, Buddhist monks, and radical atheists, in addition to representatives from every other strand of faith or belief in Britain given places in the House of Lords.
While the focus of this week's National Anti-Bullying Week will be aimed at children and teenagers, we mustn't overlook and forget the vast number of adults, some of whom are public officials, who equally need to take heed of this important annual event.
At the heart of the Abu Qatada case is a dispiriting lesson for those relying on the UK's once honourable track record as a haven for dissidents: the rich, famous, notorious or powerful still have a better chance of justice.
I am tired of reading endless reports and articles about women under-represented in board level positions, significantly underpaid and generally drawing the shorter straw in life. Not only do such features make depressing reading, they reinforce the prevalence of barriers for women to progress and in doing so create self-fulfilling prophecies for us women.
We will never find true happiness through GDP growth alone. To love and be loved - is what ultimately sustains us; all spiritual traditions tell us so and humanists would agree.
Depressingly even though legislation to ensure equal pay has been in place for 40 years, the gender pay gap in Britain remains among the highest in the EU. On average, women in the UK earn about 15% less than men. And that's an inequality found right across the pay scales - and the concentration of women in certain areas of the economy is now standing against them.
Women have as much right as men to fight on the frontline.
