It is a misrepresentation to imply that current police practice involves police officers unconditionally believing those who report a sexual assault. After years of extremely bad treatment of rape victims, what we're supposed to have now is police procedure where the complainant is simply treated respectfully, where police engagement with them takes their account seriously, and where the investigation is full and not subject to rape myths - basically prejudices about who "real victims" and "real perpetrators" are and how they behave.
The Burnout Queens love Love; big Love, small Love, puppy Love! Of course we are talking about Love today! In past years we've 'done' Love (with a capital L), we've definitely talked about self-love and yes we have even explored the steamy kind, but love of work, loving what you do, is not necessarily the dot that gets connected to hearts and flowers.
TOTM is a campaign we have set up which intends to raise donations of sanitary products, baby wipes and clean underwear for women facing homelessness in and around Manchester City Centre. Lack of access to sanitary products might only be a small part of the daily challenges that homeless women face but I don't think we can underestimate the value of allowing women to maintain their comfort and dignity.
You've been running around looking for love when all along the love that you were longing for, without even knowing it, is the love you already had within you. And you finally realise that love isn't something you get from another person, it is something you cultivate from within.
We are equal to men in this industry, and if that isn't what feminism is supposed to be about then I give up. It's sad that a movement that is supposed to embrace women and strive for equality has turned into women slut-shaming and abusing other women for not fitting their very precise mould.
We are acting to ensure that women will have up-to-date information to inform the decision for a safe abortion, should they desire it. WoW perceives an unwanted pregnancy to be a medical emergency and gives women the option of termination, regardless of economic limitations.
I personally love Valentine's Day, all of the fun with none of the pressure. It really doesn't matter what gift you buy for your loved one, or how much it cost, just that you spared a thought to get something you know they'd like! Well I have put together 11 rather fabulous gift ideas for him and for her to help you on your way to a lovely Valentine's Day together.
Valentine's Day is creeping up on us again but don't worry, I've got your back this year. Obviously I wouldn't be naive enough to suggest that I personally know what the opposite sex want this Valentine's Day, so I've called in some of our Dapper Chapper ladies to write-up a wish list.
Ultimately, motherhood is different for everyone, however being a good mother doesn't need to mean isolating yourself to parenting. There is nothing wrong with wanting to build a career, be the bread winner or build muscle at the gym whilst simultaneously being a good mum to boot.
I don't need to tell you why this is a terrible thing but more women in advertising means more women in the workforce, more women represented fairly in the media and more women going on to become C-Suite, money making superheroes. If they drop out before they've signed their first contract the future looks bleak.
Many women label themselves as 'damaged goods'. I prefer to think of us as 'different'. Like a valuable, china ornament that has been smashed on the floor and painstakingly put back together. There are scars that will never go, but there is still beauty.
My friend's signature goodbye greeting when I'm getting into a taxi after a night out is "text me when you get home". She always says this. I rarely ever do remember to text her, but when I do, it's just to keep her happy. She has never been bothered when I don't text, which is worrying in its own way I suppose.
How could I put myself through 12 hours of surgery, long recovery times, potential complications and not be able to do everything that I enjoyed at the end of it? Would that really be worth it just to have a lump of flesh on my chest which would never be a replacement breast? No.
Of course trans women have a different experience of womanhood to cisgender women, but excluding them from 'women's' spaces is basically denying the entire existence of their identity. How can you properly exist without being acknowledged as a real person for who you actually are?
It is just a shame that with this new law, the government did not provide new pots of funding to increase the knowledge base on the subject, and how to use the new powers.
Muslims have been in the news a lot lately, in fact for a minority community they receive a lot of coverage. We have heard the Prime Minister bemoan...
