Like so many issues surrounding the apparently tough but actually very fragile male ego, talking about the problem is the most effective but least attractive option. "Oh high Dave, do you fancy a pint? I suffered a crushing blow to my ego last night and my world is collapsing and I really need a shoulder to cry on". No. Doesn't happen.
No More Page 3 has never asked for parliamentary time or legislation, it does not affiliate itself to a particular party, it enjoys the support to those with the common sense and insight to realise the time has come for change.
Yesterday, Paul Connew, "a former redtop editor," wrote a piece in the guardian where he criticised the No More Page 3 campaign for being "tedious and... disproportionate in 2013" because, he claimed, we aren't tackling the "real issue" of internet pornography.
Women deserve recognition for their contribution to national life and to the economy; Britain deserves to present at least the appearance of an equal and progressive society; but with its current management, the Bank of England looks both ungracious and reactionary.
At my children's own, otherwise wonderful school, Mothers Day means card-making and an annual gift giving rally, where each child can stow away a beautifully wrapped gift. Come Fathers day, what happens? Nothing. Apparently, the reason for this is that someone at the school decided it was unfair to the children without fathers.
I can just imagine the suffragettes looking at the world we live in now, rolling up their sleeves to log onto their laptops and tablets, signing online petitions, tweeting and - ever their favourite - getting out there to march 'shoulder to shoulder'.
My compunction to play video games has grown even as have (and I admit this is an inelegant way of introducing my gender) my boobies. And I'm not alone in this.
Turkish revolutionaries! Taksim square! Femen is calling for your help! Femen has appealed to the Turkish revolutionaries with a request to protect their Tunisian prisoners Amina, Josephine, Marguerite and Pauline, who face sentences from one to six years in prison.
ewer than a third of the UK's most influential jobs are held by women, figures compiled by BBC News show. Women occupy on average 30.9% of the most senior positions across 11 key sectors analysed by the BBC, including business, politics and policing.
When feminists decry the objectification of women, most people immediately think of the images that saturate our magazines, movies, adverts and the Internet. Yet, while sexual objectification is a huge problem, it is, sadly, only a fraction of the objectification of women that permeates our world, from the moment we enter it.
Not every single woman in the world is beautiful. This is actually ok. Being plain is not a tragedy. Being rubbish at pub quizzes is a problem. Being an actively nasty person is a problem. Having quite an average arrangement of facial features is not.
A nun spikes her drinks with sacramental wine and wears red lace underwear. A soldier's wife sits by the bed of a man whose legs have been blown off, and writes his story.
I marvelled as I saw the tasty specimens with seemingly high IQs and smiles that would make mother buy a new hat. Except. Hold on. Those guys who had viewed my profile hadn't then contacted me. They'd checked me out, and obviously decided that actually no. No, they weren't interested...
As I squint at the raunchy front covers for Vogue and FHM, I realise that, despite the latter's promise to explain 'Why Gary Barlow Is Just Like You,' I am struggling to tell them apart. Hence my confusion that UK Feminista and Object only target men's magazines in their new campaign.
Being a little bit of a feminist is okay. You won't compromise your femininity, men will find you attractive and women will like you. But cross the line in becoming a full blown feminist and all of a sudden a metamorphosis occurs.
The truth is that men, through socially defined 'masculinity', have always enjoyed a privileged relationship with social and economic power. Through history, the idea of 'manhood' has been centred in physical strength, toughness, earning, providing, and dominating, creating a paradigm in which we have been collectively socialised to the idea of 'masculinity' within every faculty of our psyche.
