isn't it strange that the real neurotics about illegal drugs are often well-heeled middle Englanders who read the Daily Mail and knock back a bottle of claret in the evening? (Lott, 2013a).
Many of the Mumsnet feminists I talked to said they had always been "feminists" but not "academic" ones – as if a discussion of intersectionality and gender theory were the real ways to define themselves as believing in equality, rather than the way they chose to live their lives. (Martinson, 2013b).
In April this year, the King Khalid Foundation launched a campaign in Saudi Arabia to raise awareness about violence against women. The campaign's main poster features a woman in veil with bruising around one eye.
Robert Hardaker and Eamonn Harnett, both 23 and both artists, have no qualms about baring all: Hardaker regularly takes his kit off in his own performance works. Hardaker said he expects normal museum etiquette will dictate audience reaction – "You don't stand too close and you don't touch it." (Higgins, 2013a).
Liberia could draw a lesson from the mass failure, he added. "For the country as a whole, I think this is a clarion call that we need to all see that the king is moving around naked and not pretend as though the emperor has his finest clothes on." ( Dorbah Jalllah in Smith, 2013).
It was Stephenie who organised the thousand-plus chairs into mountains in the Room of Requirement at Harry's school, Hogwarts, and who over a period of three months supervised the makeover of the Great Hall set for the Hogwarts Yule Ball. As she once explained: "The key to set decoration is noticing the little things. You learn through observation. Look around and see what is in a person's room. I always look to see what books people have sitting behind them in interviews. It's the details." (Craig, 2013).
tattoos do not turn bodies into public property even when they're female. I've never liked tattoos – the permanence when life is anything but, the pain, the chance for misspelling – but I have some sympathy with those who see tats as a feminist issue, a way of saying "it's my body and I'll do what I want to it" (Martinson, 2013a).
The trouble with the gorgeous Doreen Murphy was that she was just too glamorous: the Join the ATS poster by Abram Games for which she modelled must have lit up many a recruiting office. She was nicknamed "the blonde bombshell", but the image was eventually denounced in parliament as too frivolous, and replaced by a more staid version. (Kennedy, 2013b).
When IJGBs arrive on African soil, many come with a set of Victorian-era assumptions. The natives are backward. By natives I mean those who have not lived or worked or studied abroad. The native, with his questionable degree from a rundown local university, does not have the skills needed for a modern business world. Thus the best jobs should go to the IJGBs. They have not flown south and crossed the Atlantic to be clerks and graduate trainees. They are here to be district officers and bank managers and live in the best sequestered accommodation. (Onuzo, 2013).
Anna is living, eating, and breathing jumpers. It's as if her brain is three-ply cable twist. She's wrapped up in her own woolly world and even when she's talking to Eggs or Dad or me you can see the click click of knitting needles flickering in her eyes. (Wilson, 2000, p.122).
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
