So apparently there's a new fascination with 'porn for women.'... Knowing my own preferences and those of my friends, we don't need this 'for women' rubbish which, yeah, is a nice thought, but really, we just need to do a bit of digging.
So here we are - seven months into the race and five days into leg six and we are sailing alongside the race's typical leaders, Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing. We have also officially circumnavigated the Earth after crossing our leg one route two days ago. We all have a feeling of dangerous relief.
Week three of my new life in Montevideo: it's 7pm on a Monday night and I'm sat in a cluster of enviously bohemian looking women and a couple of fresh...
I saw powerful speeches from international lawyer Miriam González Durántez, Caroline Rush, CEO of the British Fashion Council, Aldijana Sisic, chief of the UN Trust Fund to end violence against women and Professor Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, UAL.
There has to be change in government and not just in terms of political parties. The biggest change must be a broader representation of women at all levels. This is why I particularly applaud and admire the efforts of modern day suffragette, Frances Scott, founder and leader of the 50:50 Parliament campaign and petition.
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.
Digital job growth is forecasted to outperform all other occupations within the next five years. If we don't address the challenge of how to attract and retain female talent within technology, we simply won't be able to close the job gap.
As humans, I think it's natural for us to want to be part of something, whether that's a community in the physical sense or, more recently, online. However, I do think there's a danger of us slowly losing our individuality. Our little quirks and idiosyncrasies are what make us unique after all.
Don't get me wrong. I do understand this movement is well-intended and I love the positive message but here's why I don't agree with it: It's not well-thought and rather insensitive. Especially the hashtag #NoThighGap.
By quietly accepting this type of shame-focused advertising we allow businesses such as these to propagate an idea of 'The Beach Body', and now it is emblazoned on the London Underground in massive capital letters. But thankfully it seems as though my own indignation has company. A lot of company.
On the face of it, BBC Radio 5 Live's 'Men's Hour' is a perfect platform for some of the biggest issues facing half the population right now, in the same (obvious) way in which the excellent 'Women's Hour' has done for nigh on 70 years for the other fifty per cent.
Having arrived in Australia's culture capital Melbourne, I am giving life 'Down Under' a go. I have achieved the most important aspect of a happy life and have landed myself an amazing group of friends (more of them later) and have a super flat with work in the pipeline.
There are so many negative words used to describe successful business women in contrast to successful business men and levelling out any gender inequalities is something I have tried to spearhead throughout my career.
Like many other companies out there, Protein World is attempting to shame women in order to push their product. The image features bold writing asking commuters "ARE YOU BEACH BODY READY?" when it might as well say "DO YOU FEEL RUBBISH YET?".
This is us. The modern day independent women. We really don't care how people might judge us based on our dating history. That's their problem, not ours. We're not sorry for being single, for only having had short-term relationships. This is our life. This is our choice. This is what happens to us.
When I watched British Transport Police's recent Report It to Stop It video, posted on Transport for London's YouTube channel on 13 April, I felt a chilling familiarity with the ordeal portrayed. I identified strongly with the victim's sense of powerlessness as she is being assaulted, unable to speak out or use any force to deter her harasser.
