    Can we have gender equality if we have gendered language

    We can talk about language and sexism till the cows come home.

    It is pretty sexist that women are asked to declare their marriage status through honorifics like ‘Miss’,‘Mrs’ and ‘Ms’, while ‘Mr’ has no such implication.

    Think of how many professions take the ‘man’ suffix (policeman, spokesman, firemen).

    Then there’s air hostesses and male nurses, woman MPs, woman drivers, all which either sex can do and doesn’t need to be made gender-centric.

    Why is male always the default setting?

    In French, even if a group of women includes one man, the gender is still masculine.

    In German, a young girl is given no gender, while a turnip is denoted as female.

    Now that there are more than 63 genders, Mx, Ind, M, Mre, Msr, Myr, Pr, Sai, Ser or Misc being some of them, we need to be especially mindful of how we refer to people.

    If we want… Read the full story

    First asian plus size model

    Thank God we have body positivity.

    The beauty standards of the past are being challenged and evolving every day.

    Unfortunately though, like many industries, there is a lack of diversity when it comes to campaigns which call you to love yourself.

    Plus size models are thankfully gaining a public platform, but a majority of them tend to be white.

    So Bishamber Das is attempting to represent south Asians who may not find themselves reflected in the types of images that celebrate different bodies.

    With Indian Punjabi and Malaysian parents, Bishamber has navigated her mixed identity and infused her culture and heritage into her modelling.

    She has an impressive repertoire too,… Read the full story

    Edith Pryor was born before women had the right to vote, back on Christmas Day 1917.

    Since then, the great-grandmother has seen some remarkable changes – not least in the realm of women’s rights.

    ‘When I was growing up, women were always expected to be a mother and housewife,’ Edith recalls.

    ‘There weren’t career options, the men would be the breadwinners and that was that. Women weren’t even allowed to have their own property! Of course, nowadays that’s different and it’s a joy to see women forging their own careers.’

    Her own role model, Edith says, was the English actress, singer and comedian Gracie Fields.

    ‘Unlike other stars at the time, she had such… Read the full story

    100 years ago it was exceptionally unusual for a woman to travel solo.

    The female adventurer was vanishingly rare and those determined to break the mould – even dressing as men to get away with it – were often viewed with suspicion or even punished for their wanderlust.

    Many were celebrated, of course, even if it wasn’t until some years later. Jeanne Baret. Isabella Bird. Amelia Earhart. Mary Kingsley. Lady Hester Stanhope. Nelly Bly – the list of inspiring female travellers and adventurers is endless.

    Many went where no man had ever gone before.… Read the full story

    Do these really need to be advertised to a particular gender? (Picture: Getty)

    Yet again, a company has run into trouble by attempting to create a product specifically for women.

    Hot on the heels of Doritos’ quickly canned ‘lady crisps’ idea, Brewdog are now doing a Pink IPA for women.

    They maintain that their beer stunt wasn’t in earnest, and that they were actually sending up the trend of marketing products to women.

    In response to the backlash, they issued a statement saying that ‘the love of beer is not gendered’.

    **ILLUSTRATION REQUEST**The long-term physical consequences of being sexually harassed (Kate Leaver)
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    The first time I was catcalled I was twelve. 

    I was walking past a group of men in their late twenties and early thirties and one of them made a comment about my ‘tits’ and whistled.

    Given that I was 12, I was quite new to having tits. So having them remarked upon was also a pretty novel experience, and not one that I enjoyed. I wasn’t old enough to know what to do or how to respond, so I went bright red and walked away as fast as I could, confused, humiliated and upset.

    Kim Kardashian is just everywhere.

    It’s not a bad thing, but just feels like there’s nowhere you won’t find her. You can even get a manicure with a miniature Kimmy K twerking, in lingerie. Who doesn’t want that?

    And while it’s not the first celeb-inspired food, this lifesize cake of Kim Kardashian certainly…takes the cake.

    It’s not just any old cake either. Much like the fashion-forward glamour puss, the cake is adorned with £1.2 million worth of diamonds.

    Wait, what? Who is putting that kind of order in?


    Lifesize Kim Kardashian Cake Is Created Containing 1.2 Million Pound Worth Of DiamondsLifesize Kim Kardashian Cake Is Created Containing 1.2 Million Pound Worth Of Diamondsfaimabakar1**VIDEO AVAILABLE. CONTACT PIX@WENN.COM TO RECEIVE.** A baker has topped off a cake made in the image of Kim Kardashian with ??1.2 million worth of jewels. Debbie Wingham, the woman behind the creation of some of the world's most expensive cakes, was contacted by a customer who saw her last project - a life-sized Arabian bride cake - and requested a cake shaped like the reality TV star be made as gift for his partner. The installation, which took 10 days to craft, features 15 kilograms worth of Massa Ticino fondant, 85 boxes of rice crispy cereal and over 30,000 baby marshmallows. Over six kilograms of modelling chocolate was used to sculpt the arms, face and chest, with the dessert topped off with edible colour dust. The project marks the first time Wingham has used a 3D printer to help her with her work and she used the technology to create a template for Kardashian's face. The mould was then covered in chocolate and sculpted to look like the brunette beauty. In addition, 862 brilliant-cut Cartier diamonds totalling 19.80 carats, emeralds and onyx were used on a necklace placed on the cake along with a six-carat diamond and emerald bracelet - resulting in the bling being worth in excess of ??1.2 million.

    In case you didn’t already know, lilies are poison to your cats.

    So if you were considering buying some for your mum this Mother’s Day, choose her second favourite flowers instead if she has a cat.

    Lilies might smell like a wonderful summery day to us mere mortals but to our little furry friends, they can be toxic.

    Cats Protection is issuing an urgent warning saying people should avoid buying the flowers which contain poisonous pollen.

    The cat welfare charity says lilies are extremely toxic to felines and they can be affected simply by brushing past the… Read the full story

    The UK’s sex worker community are going on strike today, to campaign for decriminalization.

    The strike, which is being organised by the Women’s Strike Assembly, is not just for sex workers but for all people who feel that the decriminalization of the sex work industry is important.

    The organisers explained their mission, writing:  ‘We are calling on sex workers all over the country and… Read the full story

    This absolute machine is F45 Global Ambassador, trainer, and creator of #Fitin5, Paige Hathaway.

    Over the past two years, she’s rapidly risen to fame – thanks to her fitness blogging and modelling, which have won her over 4 million followers on Instagram.

    And she’s completely redefined what it means to be a ‘ripped woman’.

    She says that despite being sporty at school, ‘like most high school athletes, I fell off in my early adult years and became unfit, until I found the gym in my early ’20s’.

    It was then that she started training for her first bikini show and the rest, as they say, is history.

    So, it… Read the full story

    It’s International Women’s Day, and the boys are unhappy.

    When’s International Men’s Day?’ they ask, because they don’t know how to Google.

    Richard Herring does his best to educate them (and to raise money for the Refuge charity in the process), but they remain oblivious to a simple fact: not only do men have an International Men’s Day on November 19, but they have every other day too.
