    RBS boss Alison Rose: Why I'm supporting Women Mean Business

    The UK is not short of women who want to start a business and have the combination of passion and skills needed to succeed. However, access to funding, caring responsibilities and even the concept of what entrepreneurship involves can act as barriers. That’s why events like today’s Women Mean Business conference are so important, we need to keep our focus on removing the obstacles that stand in the way.

    Farewell to my honest, witty friend and girl crush, Deborah Orr

    I’m not a fan of the starling chatter of Twitter. There’s only one person I’ve ever enjoyed following and that’s the brilliant journalist and self-proclaimed “womanist” Deborah Orr, who died on Sunday morning. Deborah was as trenchant, funny, truthful and idiosyncratic in her tweets as she was in person; hence her 63,000, mostly female followers.

    Why it's the best time to  be a female boss in the UK right now

    It is a depressing truth that fewer than half of young people are able to list an entrepreneur who inspires them. Of those who can, 85 per cent will name a man – most commonly Lord Sugar or Sir Richard Branson. How unfortunate that the female tech entrepreneur currently consuming most column inches is doing so not for business acumen, but for an alleged dalliance with our Prime Minister.

    Relationship therapist Esther Perel: 'An affair doesn't have to be the end'

Nobody tells me that it’s playful or mischievous – it is utterly uninspired, devoid of imagination, seduction, charge or excitement. It’s just romantic consumerism.

    The kids have left home – what now? How to thrive in an empty nest

    Of all a child’s rites of passage, by far the most uncomfortable for parents is the day they leave home. It is an inevitability, of course, yet somehow, even after nearly two decades of school runs, homework and the general drudgery of parenting, it can come as a nasty shock. “You suddenly feel desperate to hang on to them; to feel you have a purpose,” says Ros Carman, a psychotherapist based in south-west London.

    ‘Why did I say that to that boy at that party when I was 16?’ ‘My face is never going to look untired again.’ ‘Where’s my phone?’ ‘I wonder what the priest looks like naked.’ ‘I’m not going to be able to handle this.’ Just a snapshot of the thoughts that have pinged through our heads in the past two minutes. Sometimes you just have to turn around and tell your thoughts, firmly, that they are being unhelpful. We have between 60,000 and 80,000 thoughts a day – some of them are going to be hellish.

    Why are so many vulnerable Chinese women being detained at Yarl's Wood?

    The note passed to a client in desperation reading, simply, ‘help me’ should have been enough to secure Shuai’s path to safety. But after handing the slip of paper to a man at the brothel where she was enslaved - forced to work there after her husband had taken insurmountable sums from loan sharks and then gone AWOL, leaving her to flee China for Britain amid ever worsening threats from the men seeking recourse - immigration officers arrived the following day, taking her to Yarl’s Wood, where she would go on to be detained for almost a year. A report released yesterday revealed that Chinese trafficking victims like Shuai make up the largest group of female immigration detainees in Britain: 420 in 2018, of whom 92 per cent were not removed from the UK but released, left to pursue their asylum cases.
