I will say straight off the bat, barring a sinking or crash; Oxford University Men's first team will win the 2017 Boat Race. I didn't go to either university, so I have no bias here.
Trigger warning: references to sexual violence
Earlier this month I set up a ...
Many more amazing women live with dementia and share their experiences in a myriad of different ways. It's impossible to list them all, but their contribution enhances our understanding and, in turn, provides invaluable learning to improve care and support for everyone living with dementia.
As a recovering 'good girl', I have a strong tendency towards perfectionism and following the rules, neither of which are particularly helpful when ru...
As part of our All Women Everywhere project, Francesca vlogs on being spoken down to and undermined by men as a sports fan and why she won't let anyone stop her from enjoying and talking about the sports she loves.
During my undergraduate and my master's degrees, I always wondered why so many of my lecturers were men and why there were hardly any women in our faculty. Especially when my classes were made up of mostly female students; it just didn't add up.
As part of my day job (that's the one where I look semi-professional and in control and active wear is not the outfit of choice) I have the pleasure o...
Expectation can lead to even greater disappointment than heartache alone and learning to manage those expectations has, over the last couple of years, been the one thing which has brought me greater peace in myself and my relationships.
Did you see the interview on Monday with Nigel Farage and Alastair Campbell on Good Morning Britain? Well, you had an opportunity to see Piers Morga...
It's important on Mother's Day that we recognise the contribution that mother's make to the UK economy, both in terms of their place in the labour market and the value of their investment in the UK workforce through paid and unpaid care. Yet we know that since last Mother's Day, according to the government's own estimates, 54,000 mums have been forced out of work due to maternity discrimination.
Part of me wanted to write a letter to my own mum, thanking her for being such a wonderful, strong role model. The other part of me wanted to write about the harsh realities that being a mum entails.
Nimko Ali is a writer, FGM campaigner and co-founder of Daughters of Eve. Here, as part of The Huffington Post UK's All Women Everywhere project, Nimko vlogs on her experience of FGM and on coming to terms with being a survivor.
Don't get me wrong: Often it's okay to play the Child Card. But don't abuse it. Don't think that because life is so difficult for you as a parent, non-parents are obliged to make your life easier. I'll let you decide the date and place we meet. I won't comment on you turning up an hour late. But it's because I'm being nice, not because I owe it to you.
On Mother's Day last year, I remember being so excited for the future. I was hopeful that despite not yet being pregnant, it was imminent. It would be my last year without being a mother, or at least an expectant mother. If only it was that simple.
You have no idea whether I am infertile, had countless miscarriages and/or abortions or had a child adopted. It's a personal question and it's not your place to ask. The same goes for the marriage query as well.
Amongst a host of impacts, I was thrown into an unknown world of lingerie buying - post surgical bra land. For the uninitiated, this is a place you feel strangely ashamed to visit. It's hidden away, at the back of bright, inviting lingerie departments. The bras lurk sadly, hanging around looking baggy and apologetic; all they have to say for themselves is, "this is as good as it gets for you now girl, choose one."
