I want you to give this some thought. Should I or anyone else be stopped from doing what they want to do because they have a disability? The answer should always be no. Alas, with mental health problems like mine, I'm battling my mind constantly. What if? Did this happen? Will I?
Across the UK there has been a disturbing lack of research into sexual violence and consent at universities, a testament to how we are failing to ensure a safe and enjoyable time to students. What little evidence that has been collated is not reassuring.
At 23, I was under the assumption that a shop containing every single domestic cleaning product you could ever want, would be far from my mind; replaced only by casual sex and 'Meeting new people'- something I have not done in a long time.
Medicine is where my heart is. It is what I have worked so hard for. Now I'm heading into my finals exams, and it's only going to get harder. But the government has been attacking me and my profession for months now, and I'm exhausted.
We must counteract the bewildering messages about sex and relationships and the objectification of women that our children are mercilessly bombarded with. The Government must take this on board, and Women's Aid will keep the pressure up on them to do so, alongside other organisations.
The NUS, and all those involved in the student movement, should categorically refuse to be drawn into the government's attempt to define the limits of "respectability" in the Muslim community and our movement as a whole. These games are aimed at blunting opposition to Islamophobia and curtailing our civil liberties more widely. If we stand by and let Cage get victimised, we will all ultimately suffer.
Whether it's on the government's part or through direct action from schools, I do firmly believe that it's time to see business gain a more prominent place in the classroom. We've already seen the wonders that small businesses can do for employment and our economy in general, so isn't it time our schools inspired a generation of new small business owners and gave them the skills they need?
In the end, bad deal or not, by opting to stay in the EU, voters actually know what they're getting. They will make a calculated decision on the basis of risk aversion. And voting to leave the EU, despite the wide reaches of its emotional pull, is just too far a journey into the unknown.
The real attack on French culture here is the parliament's decision to reinforce the state of emergency, by no way a banner for tourists or French citizens alike. We look at France as the birthplace of modern democracy, and the country's founding call for liberté is something we should not take for granted the world over.
Ordinarily, a new Beyoncé track is always an earth shattering, stop-whatever-you're-doing moment. The bass thumping song Formation gives us what we've long become accustomed to from her: brazen female strength, an unapologetic embrace of female sexuality, and an unashamed love for herself and her accomplishments. But Bey reaches new political heights in this song.
The bottom line is, I may have found the situation with the driver amusing, but a lot of female friends I spoke with immediately said they would be scared or disturbed if they received a message like the one I did. I can't justify letting something like that lie and just dismissing it as bizarre behaviour.
TOTM is a campaign we have set up which intends to raise donations of sanitary products, baby wipes and clean underwear for women facing homelessness in and around Manchester City Centre. Lack of access to sanitary products might only be a small part of the daily challenges that homeless women face but I don't think we can underestimate the value of allowing women to maintain their comfort and dignity.
I am writing this as a confession, not only to myself but to those around me and to those that decide to take the time to read this. If you decide to read this, that ultimately means that you care in some way or another in order to click the link in the first place, so thank you for that...
On 5 May 2016 people from across London have the chance to vote for the Mayor of London. The people you vote for in these elections are responsible for many aspects of your everyday life - from the underground, local bus services and policing, to green spaces, air quality and Trafalgar Square.
It matters to all of us. The cuts to bursaries will significantly impact the future workforce of the NHS, affecting anyone accessing services. That is why I am walking out with the NHS students in Manchester today. Alongside junior doctors, local community activists and students' union reps, I'll be demanding an NHS that values patients as well as the students and staff who keep it running every day.
To be top of class for social mobility, London can't just provide an excellent education for those under 16 - it needs to help young people at all levels into good jobs. Which ever candidate becomes London Mayor this May, a priority must be to ensure that good vocational and graduate routes to work are available for all young Londoners.
What happens if you've started noticing little things your parents are less able to do or you have a similar 'moment' to mine? Or something terrible happens that thrusts you into being responsible for one or both of your parents, way too early?
