{IWD2014} Being A Woman

By Kat Brown   The moment I realised that I was a woman wasn’t when I got my period, or mastered nail polish, or achieved something otherwise monumentally female. It was in France, surrounded by male friends, all of us high as a kite on mushrooms.   I don’t advise taking drugs, but I was 19, [...]

{IWD2014} Rise

By Aisling Think. Think before you speak, before you do, before you commit. Think about how you yourself would feel, on the receiving end of those words, that action, that promise.
