You would never accept a job where harsh comments and bullying were part and parcel of the job but it seems we expect celebrities to because they have a better life than the majority of us.
I will always support a woman's right to do what she wants with her body. Just please, don't do it and call it news. So excuse me if I don't stop being an opinionated woman. Sorry if I don't burn my Sociology Degree certificate (along with the bras, of course) because my feminism offends you.
For those who justify Page Three with a snide reference to freedom of press: yes, you are right. Give yourself a pat on the back, Piers Morgan. The Sun is entitled to print boobs. The point is whether they should.
Did she cure an unknown disease? No. Did she take a stand against one of the many social issues that affect women? No. Maybe she voiced an opinion about the current global warming debate... nope, wrong again. Other than being an overrated clothes horse, it's hard to see the value added when it comes to Kim K. However despite all the arguments against the all-encompassing Kardashian brand, you can't help but secretly admire her business acumen.
It's smug, it's nasty, it's a publicity triumph. It also reaffirms what campaigners have always said about Page 3: That The Sun's loyalty to Page 3 is a commitment to disempowering women under the guise of that age-old defence of sexism: "it's just harmless fun".
Depressingly - yet perhaps inevitably - recent research by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) found that half of women believe that having a baby poses such a risk to their career that they would consider remaining childless.
This all comes down to the same untruth: that female comedians are all the same, so if you don't find one of them funny, you don't find any of them funny.
It's such a waste of time and energy to focus on what is going wrong and what you don't have. Remember: if you pay attention to something, it grows. You need to send your attention to where you want it to go and starve your negative thoughts until they die.
To paint a picture of how inequalities work both ways, in the past few years I have had countless conversations with men who want a similar opportunity as their female partner to spend time with their children but who daren't mention it to their manager.
Despite a less than comfortable life down below, we're all pretty excited for the next couple of days. Around 2100 tonight we're due to reach the top of Sumatra (finally!) and begin our journey through the Malacca Straits. The Malacca Straits are like a busy marine highway and we have a narrow path to scoot through, which also includes fishing boats and shallow waters.
Feedback. Yes, it's a big ask but it is also something that has the potential to transform young people's lives.
Three years of one's life should be about learning and challenging previous assumptions. Definitely not about reinforcing the same tale, key points, and arming with ideas that seem to be true only in the inner circle of scholars of gender studies.
It is always the plan. I know my mother wanted more for me than she had had herself, professionally, romantically, economically and everything-ally. And I have spent my life trying to make that happen, especially since she died sixteen years ago.
Would I move out to the leafy suburbs of Surrey and commute into London in a bid to 'have it all'? Or would I head back to the North East where a cheaper, calmer life surrounded by my family awaited?
I recently delivered a talk on the rise of female entrepreneurship. How women were supporting women to achieve, even though it may difficult to gain funding and they may be juggling caring responsibilities alongside their work.
Women are not just unkind to themselves in this quest for perfection; they can also be extremely unkind to other women. This unkindness comes in many guises; in passive aggression; in bitching; in judgement; and in straight-up nastiness.
