When I was a teenager, the myth was that men thought about sex every 15 seconds, that's around 4,000 times a day! I didn't know if this was true back then, but it seems much less plausible given what we know now. Men turn out to be nowhere near as heroic as this urban legend suggests.
Grandparents are often more patient and forgiving with their grandchildren than the grandchildren's own parents. This is often the result of having a better perspective and longer experience in raising young ones.
Money and power can afford you many luxuries, and one of those luxuries is being able to take four days out of your schedule to raise awareness and fundraise. And when these women (the Cash and Rocket tour), led by the super-organised Julie Brangstrup, fundraise they do it in a big way.
It might not be a new pair of socks, or even a toolbox, but a 'daddy quota' could be long-lasting and the best Father's Day present he'll ever have. That way dad might even have time to go to Iceland.
Why should men wish to discuss 'women's issues'? Because they are now everybody's issues. Today, the main workplace debate is often about 'work-life' and family, and these have no gender bias.
Rather than focusing on gender quotas, it should always be about putting the right person in the job, regardless of their gender. Businesses need to value experience and loyalty in their people and where appropriate maintain a flexible attitude to employees who have childcare commitments.
Women deserve recognition for their contribution to national life and to the economy; Britain deserves to present at least the appearance of an equal and progressive society; but with its current management, the Bank of England looks both ungracious and reactionary.
According to Times columnist Sarah Vine, "forty only feels good if you're famous". "Hollywood does not reflect the real world" and, in essence, that an invisibility cloak surrounds older women who are civilians rather than movie icons. Much as I admire Sarah Vine as a writer, my response to her theory is, "oh, purleeese. Sarah", it's simply not true,
Why should businesses actively pursue a diverse board? Because diversity creates a more innovative, dynamic boardroom, that incorporates more of the varied skills that make a business successful. So what can be done do to get more women into senior positions?
It's not the fact of replacing Elizabeth Fry with Winston Churchill on the fiver that so many women object to, it's the fact that replacing the only woman, apart from the Queen, with a man means there will be no other woman of achievement represented on our money.
A survey by Stylist Magazine in 2010 found that 96% of women feel guilty at least once a day. I have to admit that I have also found this. In my work as a leadership coach and author I've noticed that the Achilles heel for many senior female leaders and female breadwinners is often guilt.
When it comes to driving, there are a couple of things you can guarantee will be making the rounds in the news - firstly, every other week you'll hear about some celebrity getting caught speeding, and secondly, there will be a new addition each month to the age-old debate about which sex is better on the road.
The glamorisation of the 'white face' because of western values inflicted upon Asian and Black cultures contribute to low self-esteem, mental illness and always wanting to be like the 'others'. How did being light or fair-skinned ever evolve to becoming the standard of beauty?
Today, women over 60 are defining and creating a whole new category of bold and fearless individuals with style, energy and ability! Many younger people might be surprised at the reality of life for women over 60 and the depth of their desire to be heard, respected and visible.
I can just imagine the suffragettes looking at the world we live in now, rolling up their sleeves to log onto their laptops and tablets, signing online petitions, tweeting and - ever their favourite - getting out there to march 'shoulder to shoulder'.
My compunction to play video games has grown even as have (and I admit this is an inelegant way of introducing my gender) my boobies. And I'm not alone in this.
