Casey Stoney: Look How Far Women's Football Has Come

Huffingtonpost

This year was the summer of women's football, where the England team proved that women's football is going from strength to strength. Overall, we had an amazing summer we reached the quarter finals and as a team we grew closer. I felt very proud seeing the whole team shine a light on women's football in front of a huge audience. Despite the outcome, we won't give up on aiming to win.

In the words of suffragist leader Millicent Fawcett, whose statue will soon be the first statue of a woman created by a female artist for Parliament Square, "courage calls to courage everywhere, and its voice cannot be denied" and it took a lot of it to get to where we are today. Brexit mustn't undo any of this groundwork.

Laura Coryton: Why 'Slags' Do Not Exist And Neither Should The Term

Huffingtonpost

The word 'slag' is far from new. But it hasn't always been negative. Originally, the term referred to extremely hard working, super amazing and often grieving women who expanded a profession they have rarely been credited for improving: the mining industry. Yep, that's right! Its linguistic history is important. We should take extra care over the way we use the term today. Here's why.

Strangely, anyone past the first flush of peri-menopause who takes the trouble to look good is assumed to be out there touting their wrinkly wares. Sure, some gals don the leopard print jeggings in the hope of catching the eye and, with luck, other organs of firm, youthful gentlemen friends. But mostly we just want to look good for ourselves with no intention of picking off sick or wounded stragglers from migrating herds of young men. Roam free, my beauties - I'd rather have a cup of tea.

This World Alzheimer's Day - and beyond it - unite with us in recognising dementia as a global women's health, social care and rights issue that can no longer be ignored.
