Why it's OK to live childless: thoughts from a self-serving woman

Jan
17

We work nine to five jobs, we want promotions, and we work harder. We go through years of education and hard work for our dream job, to be denied it based on the narrow-minded fact that we may just have to leave temporarily.

For one reason: the 'M' reason. Maternity. 

We are the women with ambitions. The growing majorities that live life childless to avoid these circumstances, and can you blame us?

It wasn't all so bad: 2016 and the Peruvian Elections

Jan
16

Although you may remember 2016 for the shocking electoral results in many countries, Peruvian elections delivered a slightly positive outlook as Fujimorism was dramatically defeated in the Presidential elections.

Fujimorism is the political movement based on the image of Alberto Fujimori, Peru’s president from 1990 to 2000. Now represented by the political party, "Fuerza Popular", Fujimorism has divided the country since Alberto Fujimori carried out a presidential self-coup in 1992, dissolving the congress and judiciary branch.

You really can have too much money

Jan
16

Compare eight people to 3.6 billion; imagine the amount of space it would take to fit eight humans into a room and the amount of land it would take to fit billions of us. It is a huge difference, obviously, yet it is evidence that we need to crack down on equality throughout the world.

Oxfam has recorded analysis saying the world’s eight richest men own as much as the poorest half of the entire world. Though this may not be entirely accurate (there has been dispute) the issue is still relevant, and has been for far too long.

First Lemonade, now Coachella?!

Jan
16

 

Exactly one month after my birthday, and six months after an intense break up, Beyoncé released her sixth studio album Lemonade.

 

It’s a story about life and relationships, feminism, the trials and tribulations of a scorned woman, southern black women and some argue, addresses the rumours surrounding her and husband Jay-Z’s marriage. On the surface the album explores emotion and betrayal, however beneath all that, we have been invited into Beyoncé’s world that is full of inconceivable highs and all-too-recognisable lows.

A tribute to Christopher Hitchens

Jan
16

 

I don’t particularly idolise anyone fully as I believe such a stance substitutes your own personal skills and attributes in exchange for a wish to acquire someone else’s, however this does not mean that I do not admire and viciously respect particular qualities, skills or talents in others.

I'd rather go naked

Jan
16

Just to be clear, I’m not going to wear my birthday suit anyway, but what I would like to talk about is faux fur – an increasing trend in the fashion industry. More and more fashion brands have chosen NOT to use real animal fur, as the reality behind huge profits is animal abuse.
