Looking back, I can hardly believe how long it took me to go vegan. It seems crazy that I was an advocate for human rights for so long before coming to the conclusion that I should be advocating for animal ones, too. Let’s be clear: I don’t think meat eaters are bad people. I was one for over 25 years, my boyfriend is,...

Uncharted is an action-adventure shooter platform game series that follows swashbuckling treasure hunter Nathan Drake as he adventures across the globe, exploring historical legends and battling villainous antagonists. Considered to be one of the greatest video game series of all time, with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End...

Although it came out nearly 5 months ago, I’m still hearing conversations about The Red Pill, the controversial documentary which dives into the deep and dangerous world of the Men’s Rights Movement. Last weekend I decided it was high time I went down the rabbit hole myself. The film documents liberal feminist filmmaker...

There are backroom deals between the Tories and the DUP, who staunchly oppose a woman’s right to choose.

Thanks to the ever-expanding world of the...

When an interview opens with a cup of tea, and closes with a friendly hand job demonstration, you know you’re writing an article for Verbal Remedy. I absolutely love writing about genitals on the internet. Very few things make me happier, other than when my fuchsia decides it can be bothered to grow, or when I find a...

If a semi-prominent feminist has written a book, you can bet a month’s wages that I’ve read it. Caitlin Moran, Sara Pascoe, Bridget Christie and many others have become brilliant bedfellows, and so when I spotted Jess Phillips’ Everywoman in my local bookshop this weekend I was simultaneously excited and afraid. It was...

In the media, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a name that is often accompanied by “feminism” and “equality”, so it has been shocking to see the controversy she sparked following an interview with Channel 4 News which aired on Friday 10 March 2017. When asked if, in relation to transgender women, ‘are you any less of a...
