    Why we're raising our sons as feminists

    Never was there a word more likely to insight controversy than the F-word. No not that F-word, I’m talking about feminism. Mention the fact that you’re a feminist and some people will automatically assume that means you’re anti-male. But it isn’t about burning your bra or wanting to live in a man-free bubble, feminism is about equality. Just ask Emma Watson.

Rocking her new ombre hairdo, Dunham paired a blue and black crop top with a black midi mesh skirt.

    Transgender children will now be able to join the Girl Guides

    For the first time in the group’s 107-year-history transgender children and leaders will be welcomed into the organisation. In a move to support anyone who identifies as a girl or woman, new guidelines from Girlguiding have been sent out to all leaders stating that children from the age of five can join Rainbows, Brownies and Girl Guides if they identify as female. Previously transgender children have been able to attend Girlguiding, but parents would have had to speak to leaders on an individual basis. This is the first time the organisation has created an official policy on the subject.

    Schools are being told to abandon the terms 'boys' and 'girls' but is it a gender equality move too far?

    The Mail on Sunday reported earlier this week that children in schools up and down the country are to be told to stop using the term ‘boys’ and ‘girls’. The guidance, being sent out to teachers, parents and pupils as young as seven, advises against the terms because of fears it discriminates against transgender children, leaving them feeling isolated. Instead children will be encouraged to use terms such as ‘genderqueer’ and ‘intersex’ by a new guidebook, which will be distributed to 120 schools around the UK next month.

    Publisher issues apology after outrage over body-shaming swimsuit article

    Swimsuit issues can be tough for magazines. Figuring out how to promote cute pieces for the season without making any suggestive or judgey comments about body image isn’t always easy. While some magazines manage to get it right, others aren’t so lucky and quickly learn about it the hard way: through the wrath of the Internet.

    Is It OK for Little Girls to Dabble in Makeup?

    The Victoria's Secret Angels Are Such Good Friends, They Know Whose Butt Is Whose

    Forget Taylor’s squad, the Victoria’s Secret Angels are the ultimate sorority. Leading up to the show they eat, sleep, train, breathe, and talk about wings together. Or, at least, that’s how we imagine it goes. The point is, come the big day, these girls know each other better than anyone, which is why our own Rob Younkers put them to the test backstage. Sure they could ID Naomi or Adriana on the runway, but what if they couldn’t see the face of their partner-in-million-dollar-bras?

    Photo: IMAXTree You might not have heard of Eckhaus Latta, an indie label which started in 2011 and has heralded pansexual fashion, but you’ve certainly heard of one of the models who walked in the Spring 2016 show. Grace Dunham, sister of Lena Dunham, made her runway debut on Monday.  The poet and actress, who will appear in Lena’s critically acclaimed show Girls on HBO this upcoming season, was chosen alongside a crew of professionals and non-models to show the brand’s dresses and tops with innovative cutouts, inventive silhouettes, and shirts and skirts using very thin fabric.  Dunham was selected as one the lucky stars because she’s friends with designers Mike Eckhaus and Zoe Latta, both Rhode Island School of Design alumnus.
