Woman Crush Wednesday: Caitlin Moran

2 years ago / 0 comments

My woman crush Wednesday this week is Caitlin Moran. This may seem a controversial choice: as a cisgender, white female, Moran’s brand of feminism is inherently flawed and it is important to critique that. However, she can be credited for helping to mobilise a modern form of feminism which is … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Qimmah Rosso

3 years ago / 0 comments

As a fitness fanatic, I admittedly have a slight obsession with the incredible Qimmah Russo, a self-made athlete. Built from pure muscle, Russo has worked ridiculously hard to reach her fitness goals, and now she works to inspire others to achieve theirs. Q-Flex Fitness is her very own personal training … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Mhairi Black

Mhairi Black is soon-becoming a household name. She is not only a woman who is an MP- a title worthy of celebrating- but she is also the youngest MP since 1667, back when 13-year-old boys were allowed to become MPs. She is precisely 25 days older than me, and Mhairi … Read More

I will start this with a disclaimer. I am potentially one of Kristen Stewart’s biggest fans. I have seen almost every interview with her on YouTube, I will read any article with her in, I track the KStew tag on Tumblr, I rewatch the Twilight films… out of choice. My … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Laura Bates

I often feel slightly disillusioned with the so-called ‘big names’ of modern feminism. Most people are familiar with Emma Watson’s “He for She” speech to the UN, or Jennifer Lawrence’s essay on unequal pay in the film industry, but while the work they have done should of course of celebrated, … Read More

“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” – Leslie Knope I have a lot of woman crushes – but one woman reigns supreme above them all. That woman is Leslie Knope; the loyal government employee, passionate … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Emily Wilding Davison

Through school history lessons most people probably know of the suffragette who appeared to throw herself under the King’s horse at the Epsom Derby in 1913, but I wonder whether many (until the recent release of the film Suffragette) actually remember her name – Emily Wilding Davison. She made the … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Nigella Lawson

3 years ago / 0 comments

One of the few female celebrity cooks, Nigella celebrates her femininity with gusto and enthusiasm. Her liking for rich, indulgent recipes, and midnight fridge-raids have become infamous, alongside her penchant for innuendo and ridiculous adjectives to viscerally describe food as she eats it. Is it possible for an English student … Read More

Woman Crush Wednesday: Malala Yousafzai

3 years ago / 0 comments

Looking back at the past few years of Malala Yousafzai’s life, it’s difficult to not be intimidated yet in complete awe of all she has achieved. Let’s be honest, how many of us had our lives even partially together when we were 16? By that age, Malala had already blogged … Read More

You’ve graduated University, great! What do you do? Well most go find a job, or continue their studies. Some will even explore the world and make the most of being young. Ah – to be young, free, and the thought of having breast cancer never crossing your mind. When you’re … Read More
