    Empowering quotes about motherhood to celebrate the royal baby

    Motherhood is tricky to put into words, as new mum Meghan Markle can probably already attest.

Ahead of Mother's Day and in celebration of new royal baby Archie Harrison, we've compiled some of our favourite inspiring quotes about motherhood.

    These female directors are changing the landscape of film as we know it

    There is still a systemic problem of representation when it comes to female film directors: even though the film industry appears to have embraced diversity of actors, there still needs to be more diversity of voices behind the camera. The female directors who are able to make their movies are changing the film landscape, from using their films as activist vehicles (Ava DuVernay) to making us rethink the superhero genre (Patty Jenkins). Here are some of our favourite female directors to have on your radar.

    5 ways to get – and keep – girls interested in sports

    Sport is good for a girl's health (mental and physical), her body confidence, her ability to embrace failure (you can't win every time) and for teaching her discipline and how to work as part of a team. Yet girls still face obstacles – like social stigmas – when it comes to their athletic pursuits. Here are the ways to get your daughter to love sport, for life.

    Neelam Gill, supermodel and activist | MAKERS

    Described by esteemed fashion designer Christopher Bailey as “the future of British beauty”, Neelam Gill is one of British modelling’s brightest stars. But she’s more than just a pretty face. Using her fame (and her YouTube channel), she is a firm and outspoken advocate for diversity and inclusion in the fashion industry, a cause that remains close to her heart and crucial to her work. She also speaks openly on social media about her struggles with online bullying and depression. As the first British Indian model to make her name in international catwalk modelling, Neelam was named the face of L’Oreal Paris early last year, becoming one of the company’s global ambassadors. She was also chosen to walk amongst a host of other supermodels in Naomi Campbell’s already iconic Fashion for Relief Charity Fashion Show. Neelam has worked with iconic photographers such as Steven Klein, featuring in publications including British Vogue, ELLE UK and Stella: The Sunday Telegraph Magazine. She also features regularly in The Guardian for her campaigning towards a more inclusive fashion industry. “Colourism is a huge part of our culture,” she said in an interview with The Guardian in 2018. “I talk about it a lot, because I think if I feel this way, there must be so many other people who feel this way, but who are too ashamed to talk about it.” Brought to you by Barbie div#mrt-node-Col2-2-Channels {display:none;}
