Admittedly, the response to Jane's declaration wasn't female camaraderie's finest hour, and all these years later I can still remember that to her credit she (Jane) defiantly held her own. Her crime? To utter the words: "I don't want children."
London is a fickle city and its relationships are too. With so many people coming and going, it's not exactly an environment for a stable love life and just when you get in the groove with someone and think you're making some headway, you'll find you've taken three steps backwards. How did that happen?
There's more to the world than Facebook comments of course, but there's also so many voices not being heard too. And if you don't speak out, then you won't get listened too, continuing the cycle of decisions made by and for white men.
We cannot waste our chance. We cannot wake up on June 24th to a broken Europe. We must stand united against the racist rhetoric and lack of alternatives the 'Leave' campaign poses. We must vote YES to remain in a united, peaceful Europe.
Anyone, regardless their faith, race, gender and background ought to be treated equally and the EU provides a prominent avenue to promote such equality amongst its members, setting an aspiring global model and for this I am voting for the UK to remain in the EU.
Several things strike you on arriving in Rwanda. First there is the heat, which hits you like a wall as you step off the plane. Once clear of the airport the next thing you notice is how clean the streets are. Plastic bags are illegal in Rwanda and it shows.
We as a country are perfectly capable of advocating women's rights without help from anyone else, especially overpaid Eurocrats. We must lobby the MPs in power, stand up for what we believe in and always vote. Voting to leave the European Union is the safest choice for women.
According to an ICM poll for the Fawcett Society, women are more than twice as likely to be undecided as to how they will vote on June 23rd. They are also less likely to state that either the 'Leave' or 'Remain' camp has addressed their concerns... One thing is clear, the public debate could benefit from a greater diversity of voices.
Carers do an invaluable job - these all too often unsung heroes are the back-bone of care in our communities and play an indispensable role in supporting the needs of loved ones, often at enormous cost to their own health and well-being.
Let's just get one thing straight: going braless is not newsworthy. Sometimes, women just don't wear bras. Sometimes, we choose not to wear bras because no bra would ever work with our outfit. When you've opted for a plunging neckline à la Leigh-Anne or a sheer number like Maisie, a bra is just going to get in the way of your fabulousness - and no underwear is worth that.
I have chosen not to have children. My choices and my reasons are my own - I respect others; society please respect mine. If I do wake up one day and have that urge, I will choose to adopt and give an existing life a life they deserve.
Welcome to Midulthood, a generation defining tribe where we are not our mothers, where - for once - it doesn't matter if there are kids or not. Where it's okay to be not at all okay. Where we swear because we're grown-ups and share because we're human.
A recent study conducted by The Asia Foundation found that 3 in 5 ever-partnered women aged 15 to 49 in Timor-Leste had experienced physical or sexual...
They are the places I've found the most immense feeling of community and togetherness. The toilets and the rain are testing, admittedly,, but it can also bring out the best, sometimes silliest in people.
After all, platforms like Instagram allow us to choose the content we consume, so instead of being battered over the head by the body shaming bumf of traditional women's magazines, I've carefully curated a community that reaffirms my self worth rather than systemically dismantling it.
For anyone in a new relationship, WhatsApp can make you go a little insane. You send him a message. One tick. He has received it. Two ticks. He has read it. Blue ticks. You can see he is online. Nothing. He comes offline. Paranoia kicks in.
