The Guilty Feminist Podcast – Listen To It!

A friend recommended this podcast she came across on Spotify. It’s called “The Guilty Feminist”. I had to give it a go, and the first episode I listened to was “1. Nudity”. It was absolutely brilliant. The women presenting and special guests are hilarious and so so honest I love it. I’m pretty sure every …

The Word Cunt, and Why Women Should Be Reclaiming It

Throughout the years, the word cunt has been twisted into an aggressive negative and offensive term. Its original meaning is the female body part, the vagina! So why has it developed such a negative connotation? Being the relentless feminist that I am, I have become more aware of the institutionalized misogyny that surrounds us all …

Trump: Banning Transgender People From The US Military

This came to my attention the morning that it was announced. Trump, the President of the United States of America, banned transgender people from being able to serve in the US Military.

I recently did a post on the representation of women in advertising and of course I'll do one on men too as they also suffer from negative stereotypes.

The (mis)Representation of Women in Advertising

Gender stereotyping is definitely an uprising issue for concern. More and more people have joined in the fight of banning gender stereotypes now more than ever. And it’s GREAT!

Intersectional Feminism (what is it?!)

Over the years the position of women has drastically changed, moved, and developed more than a woman of the 1900's could ever imagine. However, despite this movement and (literally) life changing events, we still have much further to go. And Feminism, just isn't enough. Welcome, to intersectional feminism. And why EVERYONE should be an intersectional …
