It seems that it is no longer enough to have a facelift or a boob job, or to have some collagen injected in the lips. Vaginal 'rejuvenation' procedures are now popular too. Everything female needs to be reshaped.
Women often mistake sexual relationships for actual relationships and vice versa. And that makes a lot of sense, given that the psychological aspects of sex are as important as the physical ones; to both genders. Just that for some reason women are as willing to open up about their sexual feelings and needs, as men are willing to talk about their emotions.
Queen Bey recently displayed her feminist credentials in neon lights at the MTV Video Music Awards. She's a great medium to deliver the feminist message, but does it matter that she clearly benefits from people objectifying her (not to mention benefits from being married to a rapper who made millions singing about bitches, hoes and pimpin')?
Whoever I talk to in the working world, the subjects of overload, exhaustion and burnout are a primary topic of conversation.
The idea of getting older and entering a whole new decade can be daunting when the focus is on attempting to adhere to social standards determined by age. However, when we do away with the sets of lists and various expectations, which are age dependent, we are able to embrace where we are and look forward to where we are going.
Online beauty retail is a drop in the ocean compared with the traditional beauty retail route and also online fashion retail. Less than 10% of beauty retail transactions take place online.
I have not done this quickly either and the project is very much ongoing. Four months or thereabouts in, the benefits of being more like my former trim self are beginning to become apparent. Along with the jeans a plethora of other favourite garments banished to the nether regions of my wardrobe are now reinstated for everyday wear.
Girls, we're the problem. If we don't want our appearances commented on each and every day, if we take issues with our crotches being stared at by strangers on the train, if we find ourselves ashamed and embarrassed by a hail of catcalls then we shouldn't be outside at all.
I think it is vital that we involve those directly at the centre of the issue - we must include women in discussions, and even in leadership roles, centred on the issue of sexual violence against women.
Sexual violence is a specifically reprehensible form of violence, and includes rape and any other attack of a sexual nature perpetuated against both males and females. Its repercussions can be iniquitous, and may include acute and physical repercussions for survivors and witnesses. Human trafficking can also lead to sexual violence, and I will be discussing the issue of 'modern slavery' in this article. I will also highlight the brutal effects of sexual violence in conflict.
If we're not happy with something about ourselves, that it needs to be for some other reason than because we don't have the legs of Gisele Bundchen or the skin of Naomi Campbell. It's buying into this archaic system of perfection and imperfection that has allowed Victoria Secrets to peddle such bullshit in the first place.
Businesswomen in developing countries face countless barriers on their path to economic and social empowerment. However, SMS on mobile phones can literally transform lives as it is a cost effective and efficient way to deliver information and skills to women entrepreneurs in rural areas.
Whether it's campaigners receiving death threats, an actress being harassed for hours in New York, mass kidnappings, genital mutilation, unequal pay, or a programmer receiving death threats over a false allegation of attempted media influence, women seem to get a raw deal in life. It's puzzling that there are so many guys out there that still have such a warped view of what it means to be a man.
Lena Dunham stands accused of 'sexually abusing' her younger sister... at the time, Dunham was an inquisitive seven-year-old and her sister, Grace, was just a baby. They both defend the act as completely normal, which - as someone who was also a sexually-curious seven-year-old can attest - it is.
This could be the biggest revelation in Australian horror since... well, ever. One of those rare films that burrows under your skin and leaves an impression for a long time after the credits roll, it has been generating overwhelmingly positive critical reviews since its worldwide debut at the Sundance Film Festival where it won Best Actor, Actress, Screenplay and Feature.
"Have you considered a digital perm?" asked Sebastian, one of the founding partners, who's the expert in all manner of straightening and curling. Since the words perm conjure up terrifying images of women in Dartford with pubes attached to their heads, I vigorously shook my head. But - I was interested in having a different look.
