Judging a Book by it’s Cover: The Authenticity of Fashioning Politicsby Dan Bennett
Both fashion and politics have been inextricably linked since biblical times, when prophets laid out dress codes separating saints from sinners. However, let’s not go that far back in time.

What’s wrong with being ‘basic’?by Katherine Skippon
Autumn is rapidly turning into winter, and Christmas season is beginning to get into its full groove. What does this mean?

Fatphobia and Why We Need to Talk about Thin Privilegeby Kitty Underhill

Our bodies will never be enough as the patriarchy demands that we must take up as little space as possible – to do that, society says we must be thin; it’s easier to control us if we’re focusing on minimising ourselves.
