You Don’t Have to Burn Bras to be a Feminist

Emma

By Naomi Morris Omori

Recently, someone said to me: “Naomi, you’ve become a lot more ‘outwardly feminist’ in the past two years.” Yes, and I’m proud of it.

What annoys me intensely is that there is a black name against feminism and that many people are therefore ashamed of calling themselves feminists – both men and women. They do not understand what being a feminist means: it means believing that men and women are equal. Not superior, but equal.

Principal’s Lecture Series: Professor Lisa Jardine

PLS - Jardine-7

By Niamh Hanrahan

Professor Lisa Jardine CBE is an internationally renowned scholar and, fittingly for College’s 160th anniversary Principal’s lecture, an ex CLC girl. Currently Professor of Renaissance Studies at UCL, Professor Jardine also directs their postdoctoral Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in the Humanities. She balances these responsibilities with her role as Chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. Professor Jardine founded The Centre for Editing Lives and Letters in 2002, which develops archive-based research projects of relevance to the period 1500-1800 and writes and reviews for many major national newspapers and magazines, regularly appearing on arts, history and current affairs programmes for television and radio. She is a regular writer and presenter of ‘A Point of View’ on Sundays on BBC Radio Four.

A Word (or Two) on Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke

By Safa

My first impression on Robin Thicke is not a favourable one. This is none of his fault, as he cannot help the way that he fundamentally looks, but I still cannot warm to him, at all. The reason is because his face looks like Simon Cowell’s, sans Botox and ever-present lascivious smirk.  Well, maybe the second part is untrue, because once I saw the Blurred Lines video, his future became horrifyingly clear: the rag mag covers, proclamations of how much he enjoyed ‘last night’ with both dwarf sisters, or garden gnomes, or Katie Price/Amanda Bynes (the American Version).
