Have just heard an inspiring interview on Woman's Hour on radio 4 with two impressive men, both who campaign and work for women's rights. Doc Brown aka Ben Bailey Smith a comedian and rapper and brother of the author Zadie Smith, is an ambassador for the Great Men Value Women project and Chris Green the campaign director for the White Ribbon Campaign. Both campaign on working with men to highlight misogyny, sexism and violence against women and to encourage men and boys to look at their own narrow gender roles. Well worth a listen - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03mj8lv
I'm not a great believer in new year's resolutions but there is something about a new year that inspires me to take a look at my life and to put in place some of the changes I've put off until now. I think it's knowing that a new year provides another beginning, a renewed version of the past and rekindles a belief in life's possibilities. So in the spirit of starting something new I've started this blog in the hope that my reflections and insights may be of interest to others and I'll strive to keep it fresh and updated on a regular basis. So keep an eye on this space and I wish you all a very happy New Year.
