A welcome change: Virgin kisses goodbye to compulsory makeup

In a timely announcement (it’s International Women’s Day on Friday, if you didn’t already know – and surprisingly, a lot of people don’t know. I just assume people are as bound up as me in the world of heavily-feminist quote-laden Instagram and I am left baffled when they are not), Virgin Atlantic has announced to...

The Triad | Naomi White Talks Politics Blog

The latter half of last week we saw the TV debate take two, minus two of the main players, Cameron and Clegg.

As the 7th May looms over our politicians much like the big grey clouds we’re all too familiar with here in the UK, the best bits of each party’s manifesto are being rolled out in order to grab our attention. Only, I feel like those grey clouds are going to have a bit more of...

I’m an avid follower of the progression of the campaign against tampon tax. Tampon tax, you say? They tax our periods? Well, let’s give you a little lowdown on the current situation. So, for a while, there has been a movement against the governments across the world for taxing what we require for our lady...
