Plumptious & Gorgeous Women, I Love You!

Posted on January 29th, 2014 by

Visitors to my home are sometimes a bit taken aback at the artwork on our walls. I have a wonderful collection of Beryl Cook’s pictures on my wall and they tend to be a love or hate experience, but whatever people’s views, they are always a topic of conversation. I absolutely love them. Why? Because they are full of gorgeous, plumptious women entirely happy in their own skin. They make me smile every time. Would that the world were full

Why Do We STILL Condition Our Children into Gender Stereotypes? Look at this…

Posted on December 3rd, 2013 by

Well, it’s the end of 2013 but take a look at some of the advertising out there for children’s toys and we could be back in the 1950s. Below is an advert for a girl’s duvet cover.

And for boys… I suppose I shouldn’t be shocked as there seems to be a backward trend in the way we are socialising our children, and

Posted on October 16th, 2013 by

I have to apologise right now if a slightly smug tone pervades this post.

Women, Are You Being Paid Fairly? 3 Tips

Posted on August 6th, 2013 by

The stats tell us that generally women get paid less than men. Sometimes it’s because  jobs occupied primarily by women are accorded a lesser status, and sometimes it’s because companies pay men more because they ask for more, or because they have an inbuilt gender bias. I have worked with several women who have found out by accident that their male counterparts were being paid more for the same job and they were incensed. So what can you do? 1.Well,

Periods? Don’t Men-tion Them!

Posted on August 2nd, 2013 by

I have just been ‘introduced’ to this  funny video riposte by ‘Newsnibbles’ via Twitter, although it was made last year I somehow managed to miss it. It highlights very well the fact that women’s issues are not up for general discussion and some are simply unmentionable and taboo subjects, even in the 21st century. Like menstruation for example.
