CW: rape, PTSD, social exclusion

We all go through our ‘cool girl’ stage. When you’re young, a rejection of the societal image of femininity others you. It feels like a rejection of other women. ‘Not like other girls’ is a natural refuge. My first year of FE college I w...

On the 8th March 2017, International Women’s Day, Fourth Wave: London Feminist Activists organised a demo outside Downing Street titled, ‘Death by a thousand cuts: Women under austerity’.

You know you’re protesting when you’re standing knee deep in mud, step ladder in one hand, flask of hot tea in the other, shouting “no borders, no nations, stop deportation”.

Fourth Wavers joined 600 protestors (or 1500, according to more optimistic reports) in a field...
