and I couldn't be prouder!!

This is one of her articles: belle-jar.com/2012/11/20/the-eternal-paradox-of-the-female-form-2/

but the whole website is great I think. I know I am biased but they are covering such varied topics and a lot of the writing is of quite a high standard. I was never this articulate when I was her age. This is a little bit cheeky, but if any of you would like to indulge her efforts by 'liking' their facebook page, it would be really appreciated.

I will stop gushing now!

That's a great post. Well written and emotionally involving. I'll send the link to my DDs this evening.

Sorry HotChoc I was being extremely dim and thinking it was Chat. blush

Wonderful.

Especially ...

Women have historically been caught in an impossible paradox, the need to simultaneously be the ‘Madonna and the Whore’. Of course you should show off your body for the purpose of gratifying men sexually, that’s what you’re there for, duh! But for God’s sake don’t show off your body for the purpose of gratifying men sexually, you tramp!

Loved it, love teeny feminists, they totally rock! I hope they keep writing and blogging and know how cool they are.

And you - Mum - must be a good role model.

a very good article and the sarcastic little dig at the GQ covered made me chortle. I will look out for this in future. I wish them every success with it.
