Laura Bates – Misogynation

Last Wednesday, I headed back into Oxford after work to attend a talk by Laura Bates, founder of the Everyday Sexism project, successful author, and possibly one of the most articulate people I have ever heard speak in public. The talk was held in the Sheldonian Theatre – always lovely Continue Reading

On Brexit – What’s best for the UK?

As the referendum on staying in the EU gets ever closer, it’s now only just over a week away until Britain goes to the polls to decide the fate of their country in Europe. The question of whether or not Britain should leave the European Union is everywhere at the Continue Reading

Make-Up Fake Up?

As part of the BBC’s ‘100 Women’ feature, they have an article up on their website entitled ‘Is make-up a feminist issue?’. I was immediately drawn to it, and it is certainly a very interesting and thought-provoking topic. The article, found here, is short but concise, and covers differing viewpoints. Continue Reading

[REVIEW] We Should All Be Feminists – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I can honestly say that this book almost entirely sums up my views about and surrounding feminism. I was surprised by how tiny this book was – I didn’t realise it was an essay! – but I’m so glad I bought this. Just a few days before I sat down Continue Reading

The Importance of Dealing with a Bad Day (Blogmas Day 2)

So, first up, apologies for this being a day late. I will do my absolute best to get a second post out tonight so that I’m back on track. The reason for writing this a little late is because I had a terrible day yesterday. Fortunately, it wasn’t because anything Continue Reading

‘Abortion Culture’ and ‘Authoritarian Students’ at Oxford University?

This is going to be a bit of a random post, but it’s something that has much confusion surrounding it, for both those agreeing and disagreeing with what happened. OSFL (Oxford Students for Life) are an anti-abortion group who were due to hold a debate between two men on the Continue Reading

The Productivity Problem

I’ve always struggled to be productive, especially when I don’t have anything urgent to get done. So I thought I’d do a post, a bit of a discussion about why people can be so unproductive, and perhaps some solutions as to how we can get back on track. Productivity, and Continue Reading
