Countries have been […]
The Perfect Body Will Never Existby Dan Bennett
We would all like to believe that the society we live in today is one that facilitates acceptance and tolerance, but in reality, that is not the case. The social control of women is inherent in our society today, despite these patriarchal ideas being less obvious at first glance. Initially appearing harmless, ideas that undermine […]
Feeling Body Confident with a Disabilityby Aisha Rimi
Feeling confident in our own bodies is something we have all struggled with at some point. Whether it be about our weight, skin, hair – we have all had an off day or two. With contentedness and acceptance about the way you look often comes confidence. However this can actually be less black and white […]

Why Are You Insecure?by Lily Childs Smith
We live in a world where social media is vastly expanding. Too many people are becoming brainwashed by its culture, and thinking that because they do not look a certain type of way they aren’t pretty. We, as a society, need to stop making comparisons to people whom we see on social media, and tearing […]
Don’t Let Social Media Drag You Downby Laura Cowen
One day I was trying on my favourite bikini to check if it still fit for my holiday. It did. Like a glove. To be honest,I thought I looked great. I’d been working really hard in the gym and actually remembering to feed myself at regular intervals throughout the day (instead of you know, eating […]
Don’t Search For Self-Love On The Internetby Ashton Powell
If social media didn’t exist tomorrow, this would you still love yourself as much? If the answer is yes, then I’m truly glad you’ve found yourself and learnt to love who you are outside of the internet. And if the answer is no, then that’s when you need to start loving yourself. It’s hard. Some […]

Lets Talk About Weave, Makeup and Pretty Privilegeby Jemmar Samuels
Unlike a lot of women, I don’t wear make-up and I don’t wear weave. I wake up every day and I brush my teeth and wash my face. I examine my skin and my hair, then I moisture both and go about my day. That’s it, done. For me, this isn’t some political statement, I […]

“Let Her Live” – A Question of Female Kindnessby Faith Blumberger
Women have come so far. We march in the solidarity of feminism, drugs amid chants of “WOMEN SUPPORT WOMEN”, more about we preach about empowerment and encouragement, and we hold feminist icons like Beyoncé and Emma Watson on pedestals – the ultimate, strong, independent women who reach out to so many of us with their […]
The Perception of Large Breasts Within the Fashion Industryby Luba Kuziw
Larger breasts in the fashion industry is a rarity. I’m not talking B cups or C’s, ed and the fact that these are considered ‘abnormally large’ for a model is utterly ridiculous.
