Every White Man’s Sentence

When I first saw Melissa Lozada-Olivia’s slam poem Every White Man’s Sentence, I was personally really impressed. I thought she raised some excellent points about how some men try and silence women’s voices. This, to be clear, isn’t a feminist thing – although it’s a large part of feminism and part of the reason I … Continue reading Every White Man’s Sentence

She’s A Bitch

When I was younger, I didn’t really understand what feminism was, or what it stood for. However, through inspirational women, inspirational teachers and influential readings, it became quite clear to me early on that I was a feminist. I think, when I was younger, I thought that feminism meant I couldn’t shave my legs or … Continue reading She’s A Bitch

Audrie, Daisy & Rape Culture

Audrie & Daisy is an amazing Netflix documentary that follows, in particular, two teenagers who were sexually assaulted and raped (among other brave young women who also shared their stories). If you haven’t watched the documentary, you need to do so immediately. It’s similar to The Hunting Ground, and perhaps even more moving. Unfortunately, Audrie’s … Continue reading Audrie, Daisy & Rape Culture

However, it's been a little while since someone's asked a friendship-related question, and for now, I'd like to wrap up the series.

Reasons Why The Feminism Movement Is So Fucking Important

I usually prefer tacking individual reasons and subjects for each blog I write. I want them to mean something – therefore, each article is written with a specific purpose. I use anecdotes where possible to help personalise the message, but recently I’ve been fighting the same battle – that I’m not listing enough reasons as … Continue reading Reasons Why The Feminism Movement Is So Fucking Important

The Ex Files: I’ll Go Anywhere Blindly Vol #10

To help with understanding why it’s not as easy as people think to “just leave”, I will be writing a few memoir collections on my abusive ex. From here on in, I will refer to my ex as Ben, after Ben Affleck, because I have an irritational hatred for Ben Affleck. Seriously. There’s a lot of … Continue reading The Ex Files: I’ll Go Anywhere Blindly Vol #10
