women in business
We all need somebody to lean on...
'As you read this list of excuses you might think it’s 1918 not 2018.'
2018 may be the year social awareness and legislation catalyse a big shift.
'It is also important to encourage young girls to think about going into business.'
Today is the day women stop earning but just keep right on working. It's Equal Pay Day. 10th November is the day this year
The morning of the surgery, I sat speaking with my mum. The conversation turned to how many years we all could have left together. In that moment, I felt fear like I'd not felt for a very long time. Not fear of death or loss, rather fear of wasting even one second of this precious life.
I'm proud to be a female entrepreneur in the online industry, and I type those words with passion. I'm only 19 years old and I've managed to grow a successful freelance business - something I never would've thought was achievable if I'd have listened to the advice of other people.
Times are changing and perhaps the idea would appeal to a few of the growing number of working mothers.

I hope that we can now come together as an industry and ask 'how can we address this?'. If we are to have a truly thriving music industry, we need to promote brilliant people from every gender, race and background, and that can't happen until harassment and sexism are properly dealt with. It's time to break the pattern.
Good writing is good writing regardless of gender. And yes that is true. Except one can't help wondering why all the brilliant female writers working on the Sunday Times are in the Style and Magazine sections (which are both edited by women). Is that where they're 'meant' to be?
