Let's Lose the Loose Women

On tuesday I had come home from university to quickly finish some seminar prep and noticed Loose Women trending on twitter. Out of curiosity I clicked the link and straight away I was pissed off (shock). Loose Women is not a show I would watch and I certainly won't be doing following what I saw. I was too busy at the time with my studies and I've just had the chance to catch up: the episode I am referring to is from tuesday the 7th of october 2014, in the second quarter (watch it on itv player asap before it is taken down - a standard process after a few days of its being on the site). 
This is quite a messy/quick post as I'm very busy but it's been bugging me so I thought I'd get something written down.

You Can't Sit With Us Feminism

I'm late on this, I know, I'm pretty crappy at running this blog and I'm hoping to get better at it but the spark to write has arrived. I need to start typing here when I feel a twitter rant coming on because 140 characters is not enough for someone as hideously angry as me. I wanna start by talking about HeForShe a "solidarity movement, a partnership between women and men" launched by Emma Watson last month at the UN. It's broadly in aim of improving the lives of women but it strongly underlines the male experience also. You can watch the speech here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-iFl4qhBsE and it is really brilliant and I love it and I love her but I'm not gonna focus too much on the speech or movement itself here.
