High street you've got to do better. We deserve better. We deserve words to match how clever, vocal and witty we are. Every single day I see clever memes and sharp comments online which make me think or smile or really laugh.

Kendall Jenner's Slammed Pepsi Ad Is Proof Advertising Needs Diversity

It isn't necessarily a bad thing for brands to want to be involved in activism. They have the money and the influence to potentially drive real change forward. But throwing Muslim photographers, Asian cellists and transgender activists into the supporting cast of a Kendall Jenner publicity stunt is not the way to go about it.

The decision to strike is a deeply personal one and we respect each woman's individual choice.

As the Chief Executive of Women's Aid, the national domestic abuse charity, I all too often see the worst experiences of women 2017. The fact is, that women are abused because they are women: because we as women are not equal. Abuse feeds off our inequality - and abuse feeds our inequality too.

On Saturday January 20th I stood with a group of a few hundred Americans in front of the U.S. Embassy in Athens. It was thrilling to be a part of simultaneous marches across the world for women's rights. The gathering began at 4pm, and at 4:30 we were politely told to cross the street, our slot was up.

The Fight Against Fascism Requires Awakening The Left's Liberal Conscience

As reassuring as it was to see pictures of lawyers working pro-bono at airports across the United States against Trump's #MuslimBan, Leftists need to analyse how the free world got to this point in the first place. In many ways, the fight against Fascism in 2017 will require an earnest attempt to rouse the Left's liberal conscience.

How Can We Put A Stop To Racism In The Workplace?

We live in a society where racial discrimination occurs routinely, but often subliminally. The discreet element of racism allows it to maintain its grip on society without people being able to fully appreciate its impact on the lives of many. Racism is not only demonstrated through hate crimes and openly racist remarks.

Don't Take This Lying Down. No Man Is Worth That - Least Of All This POTUS

There is no point trying to shield children from such derogatory and demeaning language and hate-filled invective - not when the leader of the free world thinks it's acceptable and it's therefore reported on every media outlet possible.

May We Have A Word, Mr Trump?

It's been seven years since the legendary American reformer, Doris "Granny D" Haddock, passed away at age 100, but at such a time as this, she would most certainly have something to say. After living through two world wars and the threat of nuclear annihilation - and then walking across America for democracy in her ninetieth year, undaunted by arthritis and emphysema - Granny D knew what she stood for and wasn't afraid to speak.

Donald Trump's Anti-Abortion Agenda Shows How Far Short The Women's March Fell

Unfortunately, we just have to have faith that the new-look US government will do the right thing for all of us. Four days into his term at its helm, Donald Trump has already set out his stall - and we all know it isn't selling progressive politics. No amount of marching is going to cure that.

This weekend, we witnessed something extraordinary: millions of people came together across the seven continents to demand a fairer world. It was profoundly moving and powerful. As I listened to speakers at the different marches with tears streaming down my face and a large lump in my throat, I found myself reflecting on my own journey to the women's movement.

After The Women's March, Our Need For Solidarity Is Stronger Than Ever

Phoebe Cleghorn | Posted 23.01.2017 | UK
Phoebe Cleghorn

The motivations of the Women's Marches were not as simple as they may have looked on paper. Some marched for reproductive rights, some in response to Islamophobia. Women marched so that their voices may be heard, though each voice said something different. This said, it's important to remember that these differences need not separate us. Positive movements such as feminism should, ideally, display no barriers between race, background, belief or sexuality, but rather solidarity amongst the diversities that define us.
