However, I have noticed that much talk surrounding "Lean[ing] In" has centred mostly on women who already in the workplace. Whilst I have nothing against this, I feel as though younger women, girls of my own generation in the UK who are still in school, are, comparatively, missing out on this exciting 'buzz'.
The Cranfield Female FTSE board report published this week - the annual benchmarking report and update to Lord Davies about the number of women on boards - should give chief executives, chairmen and executive search firms pause for thought.
If Femen really want to help Muslim women they should address the fact that for far too long now, Muslim women have been marginalised, bombed, raped, killed, and enslaved by men from the western world. They should work within their own countries to try and subvert future wars against Muslim countries and help break down barriers. Or perhaps they should stick to trying to liberate women in the west.
As a woman with brains and ambition, Mrs Thatcher thought all this stagnation wasn't a joke. She thought she could do better. And she did.
Power's action on the brain has many similarities to drugs like cocaine, and can cause similar changes to the brain, including, in extreme cases, a sort of addiction to power. Margaret Thatcher found it exceedingly difficult to live without this drug and harbored a bitter and unforgiving resentment against the colleagues who brought her down until dementia came over her.
Lessons women learn from Margaret Thatcher In a recent book Women Lead that compiled the findings of two studies on women and leadership. Margaret Th...
It's wrong that the dominant image of a woman in The Sun is consistently one of a young, bare-breasted model posing in a thong because it sends a powerful message about a woman's position in society: that her primary role is to be sexually attractive to men.
Central to Femen's European cause is anti-Islamic sentiment. They claim that religion is evil - that Islam is morally equivalent to fascism. Last week, the group orchestrated protests in France and Germany against Islam which they called 'topless Jihad Day' and declared a 'new Arab Spring'.
This week half naked women bared all across the cities of the Western world from Paris, Kiev to Melbourne, in a day of protest. Organised by Ukranian ...
Coralie Colmez's idiosyncratic combination of Gallic good looks, quiet intellect, a warm, unassuming personality, and an ultra cool dress sense that veers between hipster and high fashion is magnetic.
Some matters are simply contentious. Sometimes you're never going to get it right. The politics of the Middle East, for example. Whether Scotland should or shouldn't become independent in 2014. Oh, and whether the term 'lady' is outmoded and derogatory or exactly what most women aspire to.
"I read this survey that said that unattractive girls are better in bed," a friend of mine said and looked me dead in the eyes, "No offence."
Whilst I celebrate that women should not be ashamed of their bodies and to possess the freedom to do what they want with it, I object to the objectification and commodification of female bodies as a tool to sell and acquire profit.
Last year wasn't just great from a British perspective but also for sportswomen all over the world. For the first time in modern Olympics history, women were included in every countries team and women from Saudi Arabia, Brunei and Qatar even represented their country for the first time ever at an Olympics.
Many people think starting your own business is an overwhelming challenge, but the truth is, it's far simpler than you think.
Nobody likes a pretty-girl drunk. That's a deal-breaker right here. A pretty-girl who is a little bit tipsy? Cute. A pretty-girl a little unsteady on her feet? A bit giggly? Charming. But a pretty-girl who is a messy, sloppy, belligerent drunk receives twice the vitriol reserved for even the most unsavoury of drunken characters. It offends us, seeing this pretty girl displaying her internal ugliness for all to see. It's like taking a shop window display and covering it in garbage. Nobody wants to see that. Keep your window displays clean and bright.
