2013: The Year of Faux-Feminism.

So 2014 has finally dawned upon us, and whilst I’m sure many of you are already conjuring up new promises you’ll swear to keep for the future ahead, I decided to reflect back on what the previous year provided us with. That’s when it hit me- whether we realised it […]

Feminism to blame for ‘hook-up’ culture

Feminism to blame for ‘hook-up’ culture

I was astonished to read Susan Dench’s column the other week that implied feminism had indirectly led to this new-found ‘hook-up culture’. One thing is for sure, Dench surely would not be able to voice her opinion without feminism. The column attacks feminism, claiming that the movement has caused a […]

Why Facebook’s Ban on Boobs but Big Up for Beheading Sucks!

Heads or tails? Either, according to Facebook, just as long as it’s not tits. On Monday 21st October, and so just in time for Halloween, Facebook decided to lift its ban on beheading (well, images and footage of people being beheaded) but not its ban on exposed breasts. Cue: footage […]

Do as we say or we’ll take your post away

We have all felt it in one way or another. The pressure to conform to what is, socially, right or expected. This pressure can come from friends, family, the media. Look in any direction and I guarantee you will find someone telling you how you ‘should’ be acting. However, when […]

Review: ‘How to Be a Woman’ by Caitlin Moran

When I first set eyes on Caitlin Moran’s novel ‘How to Be a Woman’, I noticed two things. Firstly, that the title presumes to tell me how to ‘be’ based solely on the fact that I am a woman, and, secondly, that the woman on the front cover has unkempt […]

Why the Mail Online’s ‘Femail’ is Actually Detrimental to Women

With its cotton candy colouring and its equally fluffy journalism, the ‘Femail’ section of Mail Online – The Daily Mail’s online platform – is, quite simply, an abomination. A place where feminism comes to die, where a woman’s lady-parts miraculously smell like roses, and where body hair and period pains […]

Why We Love the Women of Game of Thrones

Let’s face it: television, particularly the Hollywood variety, hasn’t been the kindest to it’s female characters. From femme fatales like Lori from The Walking Dead to overly-analytical, nonsensical, uber girly Carrie Bradshaw of The Sex and the City franchise, television has a bleak history of having good, solid, strong female […]

What’s Black and White and Wanked all over?

HELP! Tits, Hooters, Jugs, Raisin Tassels, Bazookas (No, not the anti-veruca cream…) Fun-bags, Water-bags (really?!), Boobies, Breasts, the Twins (preferably identical, but never Siamese…), or whatever you want to call them, are being threatened! Well, not actually, just the ones on Page 3. But, could it really be true? Could […]
