Celebrating International Women’s Day with Abrams + Chronicle [review + giveaway]

I think I've really grown as a feminist over the last year. I have been inspired by the lives of some truly remarkable women - I've learned about female historical figures who have long been overlooked, watched in awe as women in their thousands have marched for what they believe in and realised that we… Continue reading Celebrating International Women’s Day with Abrams + Chronicle [review + giveaway]

Here’s to strong women.

I saw Star Wars Episode VIII in the cinema the other day and, in amongst trailers for Infinity War and Ready Player One, and ads for cars and mobile phones, I saw this: It made me think about the countless discussions I have with Luke about modern feminism. I totally support his arguments that there… Continue reading Here’s to strong women.

Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul

Books, feminism

Rebel girls

This year I have been inspired by so many rebel girls - writers, politicians, activists, actresses... There's a reason why 'feminism' is Merriam-Webster dictionary's word of the year and why a group of brave women have been named as Time's 'person' of the year. It really is the year of the women. Unfortunately, these stories… Continue reading Rebel girls

Make a difference

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop (Greek storyteller) I used to think it was naive to believe that one person can make a difference in the world but sometimes that's really all it takes. Sure, we might still be under a Conservative government and Trump is President but… Continue reading Make a difference
