Certain newspapers are running stories about the Duchess of Cambridge's feet, on display during her tour of India. One has even gone so far as to describe them as: "Corns, clawed toes, bunions and fallen arches."
Schumer aside, I'd like to know why Glamour decided to have an issue to celebrate plus size women in the first place. Is it making up for (decades of) lost time? Having an entire issue to plus size women only serves to highlight how exclusive the magazine is the other 11 months of the year - and has been every year since it first launched in 1939.
Despite inroads with the closing of 'lad's mags' FHM and ZOO last year, the (albeit reluctant) suspension of Page 3 and Katherine Viner's editorship at The Guardian, print media, it seems, is still overtly dominated by men.
Over 100 years ago, the liberal and forward thinking city of Manchester became the birthplace of the Suffragette Movement. From a small house in the t...
#WIM2016. Inspired by the editors of our favourite magazines, the producers of our favourite television shows. The friends who don't believe in themselves enough to write a newspaper article and the school girls who don't aspire to University because of the lack of females celebrated in the media.
Young people face many of the same pressures growing up that I did but with the growth of social media the pressures have become more intense - communication can be 24/7 and there is often nowhere to hide... Playing sport as a child helped me enormously.
Now, I never thought I'd say it but I kind of, sort of, maybe agree with the she-devil's column, most of it anyway. Caitlyn stated that the hardest part of being a woman is 'choosing what to wear'. It's all relative, and to Caitlyn getting dressed with a new body as a new gender probably is a bit tricky at this point, and that's totally fair enough...
Am I meant to be dieting to look my best in a Little Black Dress or eating my body weight in mince pies? I do wish the world would hurry up and decide because all these contradictory Christmas messages are giving me a headache.
The problem is not what his daughters are wearing. It is society's persistence in sexualising young women (often against their will), and refusing to realise that it is this forced sexualisation that causes the issues in the first place.
The implication that I may not have a grasp of my own sexual orientation is insulting. It wasn't that long ago that women were denied sexual pleasure altogether, now I'm supposed to accept that my last 27 years have been a lie. No thanks, science.
In the same decade that we moan of 'political correctness gone mad' and 'positive discrimination', why are talented members of minority groups still hugely underrepresented on our televisions, radios and in our films? I am tired of being the only woman in an interview lineup, simply because the job had the word 'technician' in the title.
When I first saw Demi Lovato's Vanity Fair cover this weekend, I applauded her. As a woman who has battled body confidence issues for most of her life and has spoken extensively about her eating disorder, Lovato has finally made peace with her appearance, celebrating with a naked, un-retouched photoshoot.
Big bums are nothing new and neither is the adoration for them. I've had one for as long as I can remember and am a descendent of a long line of big-bummed women. (You think my bum is big? You wait 'til you see my mum...)
By way of social experiment, I posted Smart's story to Facebook and Twitter to find out what exactly what people thought of her story. Responses were almost always vile or ignorant so I've rounded up some of the most common criticisms, with my own simple explanations as to why they are bullshit.
It was hard to beat Kay Burley's response ('I'm sure your mother is incredibly proud of you, Dylan. I know I would be') but this is a poem about the prank and how it felt symptomatic of a much wider issue.
It's not what you know, but who you know, as the saying goes. While I lean towards a healthy combination of the two - determination and a healthy love of hard work being crucial for growing both your personal and business 'brands' - there's no doubt that getting yourself out there is important.
