all women everywhere Now I'm not just an angry woman, I'm an angry mother and an angry feminist, and I have to assume that anyone who isn't angry simply doesn't know the truth, because how can anybody good, anybody who cares about other people, not be angry?

Stop Apologising For Your Opinions

Women are intelligent, emotionally insightful, intuitive beings and we can harness these attributes to work in our favour. We need to say what we mean with the assertiveness women everywhere deserve. Presenting our thoughts in any other way is an injustice to our struggle for true equality and the ongoing fight to be heard in the same way, and on the same platforms, as men.

Not bad... for a girl. It almost sounds like a compliment, doesn't it? We have all heard comments like this and, whether we bristle at the low bar ...

Am I A Feminist?

Sophie Farrow

Do I burn my bras? Nah! Do I go out walking the streets for equal pay for men and women in the work place? Nope! But not through not wanting to, from life swallowing me up. But do I have a voice when I am standing up for what I believe in? Hell, yes, I do!

What Makes Me A Woman

One caller asked a question which, as a cisgender woman, I felt unqualified to answer. As such, I reached out to some members of the trans community who, I felt should be offered the opportunity to address the point.

The Badass Woman's Manifesto

They say the best way to get to know someone is to find out about their weaknesses. Declare your flaws, own them. Accept yourself in all your grandeur. We have given birth to the earth. Your strength is a tower compared to your weaknesses, so stand tall. You are indestructible and there is nothing that you cannot recover from.

I am a Musician, a Wife, a Mum an artist, writer, presenter, racing driver, educator, daughter, sister and friend. Pausing to think of these titles that make up Yolanda Brown gave me a strange feeling... was it stress, anxiety? How do I do it? Am I ok doing it?

Woman And The Moon

She's a ghost. A shapeshifter. Heavenly woman. Her mystery is very seductive, and perhaps that's what stirs and excites me when I look upon her... transforms me. It's as though her ethereal fingers of light reach inside me and remind me of my own mystery... connect me to my own luminous centre..

Anyone, regardless their faith, race, gender and background ought to be treated equally and the EU provides a prominent avenue to promote such equality amongst its members, setting an aspiring global model and for this I am voting for the UK to remain in the EU.

Some Days, I Run in Pink

Don't get me wrong. I would absolutely love more choice of colours for women's fitness gear. But that doesn't make women who like Pink wrong, or foolish. Choice means that sometimes, Pink is OK.

Response of an Immigrant Muslim Woman

I understand governments need to tackle radicalisation and extremism. I understand that they have a difficult task on their hands. But please try and find real reasons behind these acts instead of making a scapegoat out of an immigrant Muslim woman like me.

We can become the kind of woman we look up to and admire. We can become the kind of woman that we dream about. We can become the kind of woman that we find ourselves being envious of. But we have to create her. We need a desire to change and a boldness to become her.Want to be a better woman? Then start today.

Women are consistently told how they should portray themselves. We are told to be thinner, to be whiter, to be more feminine, we are told that we are wrong and that we should rid ourselves of undesirable attributes. But what if we don't want to be carbon copies of one another?

Was her emotional outburst really so off putting? I mean, we live in a time when you can't really turn on the television without someone on screen crying, but should this be replicated in a professional environment?

If you've watched any of the Volvo Ocean Race video content (you can find a bunch of ours on the Team SCA website), you'd most likely gather that out here it's 100% carnage 100% of the time. However, this can be a bit deceptive as generally, especially in the last few days, for us it's been far from carnage.

For some reason, society has deemed the word "feminism" as a negative concept. Since when did the desire to live in a society that respects gender equality become an offence?

Whether you'd like to admit to it or not you are contributing to the silencing of woman, but if you really must call us dolls, we shall be Baby Annabells' and cry and wail about it, until our batteries run out.

Burlesque and Feminism: What Is This Thing We Call 'Woman'?

70% of a typical audience at a burlesque show will be women. Given that dynamic, can you really say that burlesque is performed for the male gaze? It's a profession produced by women for women and celebrates diversity in body shape, age and sexuality.

When Hadley Freeman, wordsmith at the end of the 'Ask Hadley' series on the Guardian, described the recent comeback of the 90s in fashion as an 'apocalypse', I was expecting to me met with exactly this. I was ready to be put in my place about the 90s hype that has been taking back over our wardrobes. Nope.
