When you look at the submissions collectively, it becomes a struggle to frame us as 'politically apathetic'. We aren't just a cross in a box - we've got strong beliefs and passion. I honestly think that when it comes to the relationship between young women and our politicians, it really is a case of 'it's not me, it's you' - it's clear we've got the enthusiasm and ideas, so the question is, politicians, what are you going to do about it?
These are complex problems that won't be fixed overnight but they can be addressed; just as long as we take gender into account. To do otherwise means that any attempts will continue to fail, and to fail young women.
Developing deep and broader roots help us all to be safer, more stable and resilient. Resilience allows us to cope more effectively with these setbacks, disappointments and disasters. Today's young men need these life skills more than ever before. The world is changing. And not necessarily in a good way for men.
It's the scandal that no one is talking about; more than 90,000 more young women than men are out of education, employment and training - so-called NEETs. It may be a tidy acronym but now is the time to stop sweeping this issue under the carpet.

Its not necessarily right, and we all do it far too often, but it's something innate in all of us.
Women still know less about politics than men despite progress in sexual equality, especially in Britain, academics have
It's not Rihanna's job to live up to our ideal of the perfect role model for young women. She expresses herself for a living. She's very good at it. Right now she's young and spends a lot of time going out. She's really no different from other girls her age in that respect.

To suggest younger women are not interested or ignorant of the women who went before us is insulting, in my activist work I work along women of all ages, I have sat and listened intently to women speak of their experiences at Greenham common, of living in Palestine, of fighting for the rights of migrant and refugee women,
