Paul Ryan: Rape is a "Method of Conception"

Last week, it seemed nobody could get enough of the Todd Akin story. People everywhere were outraged! Even the Raging Grannies were so pissed they created a Legitimate Rape song and video.

Israeli Court Makes Final Decision on Rachel Corrie

Rachel Corrie was a 23 year old activist, killed in Gaza whilst trying to prevent the destruction of Palestinian homes. I’ll let that sink in a little. At 23-years-old, this woman gave her life to protect the rights of others. The rights of virtual strangers. Today, an Israeli court made their final decision on her death. They summarised that her demise was not the f...

The 100 Most Powerful Women in the World

Forbes has announced their 100 Most Powerful Women list, which I feel should be renamed The Power Bitch 100. It's the one list I don't need to get angry at for excluding women, and because it's Forbes, it seems a lot more legit than random websites that make a big fuss about creating a list that only serves as linkbait.

The "Bad Sexual Etiquette" of Julian Assange

This weekend, Julian Assange poked his head out of his secret hiding place, the Ecuadorian embassy, to make a rousing speech to his fans, and to the world's press. He pleaded for President Obama to "renounce its witch-hunt against Wikileaks". He spoke of freedom, and "journalistic expression". He even drew

Todd Akin on Women's Bodies & "Legitimate Rape"

Another Monday, another US politician saying something completely ridiculous and untrue about women's bodies. What a great way to start the week! Representative Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for the Senate in Missouri who is running against Senator Claire McCaskill, is against abortion, even in cases of pregnancy resulting from rape.

Life's a Beach: Women's Volleyball Semi Final

On Tuesday, thanks to British Airways, I had the pleasure of experiencing the London 2012 Olympics first hand. Needless to say I was beyond excited. I even had a t-shirt made and rushed out to buy union flag themed shoes. (Why do things by halves, eh?) Joined by our competition winners, I headed down to the Horses Guard Parade venue to witness the first round of the women's be...

Why it's Important to Celebrate Female Athletes

As Helen Glover and Heather Stanning glided across the finish line in the Women’s Rowing Double Scull to win Great Britain's first gold of the games, the reasons why it’s so important to celebrate female athletes' victories became incredibly clear to me.With Glover and Stanning’s win, it meant female athletes had won Team GB’s first gold, silver, and bronze medals of the games.

Give Zara Phillips Credit Where it is Due

London 2012 is set to be the Olympics where women in sport finally get the respect that they deserve. Unless they are “posh” and enjoy riding horses; then they’ll still face a deluge of patronising comments and have their achievements undermined at every turn.Equestrian athletes, or “horsey types”, have a tough time with the press. Equestrian sports are dogged by accusations of elitism, exclusivity and snobbery. I get it, I really do. Dressage is unlikely to ever be the subject of a fi...

Why 2012 is a Great Year to be a Woman

With Magic Mike hot on the tail of 50 Shades of Grey, 2012 is a great year to be a woman. It seems that for once, mainstream media isn’t catering to male sexual tastes.First off we had 50 Shades of Grey – a novel that’s already outsold Harry Potter (quite a feat considering how wide the target audience was – kids, mums, college students, your dog…) and been credited with a
