... talking and reading about:
  • street harassment - we're now a co-sponsor of stop street harassment
  • Rihanna, Chris Brown, domestic violence and victim blaming
  • battle of the complexions - prompted by this event held to celebrate black history month
  • attitudes to sex and violence, including those hold by young people
  • the resurrection of David Starkey on the BBC
  • the 'white-washing' of the British empire
  • Whitney Houston
  • Kwame Nkrumah's declaration of Ghana's independence - 55 years ago on 6th March 1957
