WE MUST PROTECT WOMEN IN THE PUBLIC EYE
On the surface, it?s a great time to be female: girls
are doing better at school, going to university in
record numbers, and ?male? industries are actively
recruiting more women. But according to new
research from Oxford Brookes University, this
won?t necessarily close the gender leadership gap.
Dr Michele Paule and Dr Hannah Yelin have found
that girls are being put off roles that involve being in
the public eye because of the sexism and hostile
scrutiny such women face, as well as ?the risk of
psychological and physical harm?. We need to act
now to change the toxic environment our female
leaders are subjected to. Otherwise, a generation
of girls will be put off going for the top jobs.

Turns out, I?m a
survivor of domestic
abuse, which I
wasn?t expecting.
UPS
One minute, I was deep-googling the draft
of the new and improved Domestic Abuse
Bill (hampered by Theresa May?s reliance on
Northern Ireland?s staunchly anti-abortion
DUP); next, I?m reading about a form of
domestic abuse called ?reproductive coercion?
and thinking: but that happened to me.
Reproductive coercion is a relatively
unknown form of abuse, in which a partner
controls your reproductive choices: decides
whether you use contraception, whether
you get pregnant, whether you end that
pregnancy. It is subtle, stealthy ? it lacks the
brutal, grotesque honesty of punching your
partner?s lights out ? but nonetheless,
it?s catastrophic for anyone experiencing
it. It was catastrophic for me.
When I was 22 and a barmaid, I met a
person our lawyers insist I refer to only as
R, though I?d name him in a heartbeat if
I had my way. He was 26, good-looking,
smart; secretly sad and lost in a way I
understood, because I was secretly sad
and lost too, then. Saving R seemed like a

preferable alternative to facing the epic task
of saving myself. Yet as much as I wanted
to save R ? he wanted to destroy me. He
was your classic self-loather who turns it
outwards. He was, initially, a cutie: running
me baths after late shifts, folding my clothes
while laughing at how untidy I was? Then,
one day, he screamed at me for getting
make-up on a towel. That was the first time
he scared me. A week later, he told me he
adored me, that I should be only with him?
Then took a call from another girl in front
of me, explaining afterwards that what he
did was none of my business. That was
the first time he ruled me by confusion.
After that, he took me apart so deftly, the
process seemed inevitable. My sense of self,
and self-worth, was filleted, dismantled like
flat-pack. By the time he started refusing
to use condoms, I no longer knew which
way was up.
I got pregnant. Of course I did. R
disappeared, maintaining contact through
erratic late-night phone calls when he?d ask
if I?d ?cut his baby out and thrown it in the
rubbish yet??. I had an abortion (thank you,
Britain?s abortion laws, a thousand times!),
then started rebuilding myself from the
ground up. Relationships like that leave you
derelict. Desecrated.
Until my deep-googling, if I?d thought of
R at all, it would have been as a ?shitty ex?.
Now? I call him ?an abuser?. Had I known
about reproductive coercion at the time, it
would have helped: cradled my experience
in a definition, in the disapproval of the
State. So if anyone else needs that, if you
need it now? Take it. With my love.

How Prince Harry?s
really ?changed? since
meeting Meghan
AFTER REMAINING SILENT
throughout months of negative headlines
concerning the Duchess of Sussex, last week
it was revealed that the Palace is now actively
trying to quell the criticism against her.
Royal aides are apparently battling ?sexist
and racist? comments on social media
directed at both Meghan and the Duchess
of Cambridge. Some users have made
?violent threats? (one post about the
Sussexes featured a number of knife
emojis). Others have ruthlessly pitted the
two women against each other by creating
competing Kate and Meghan camps.
The overwhelming amount of abuse ?
reported to have peaked in October 2018,
when Prince Harry and Meghan undertook
their first overseas tour to Australia together
? has meant that Palace staff are spending
?hours? reporting and moderating posts on
the duchesses? accounts, according to a
source. ?You only need a few of them to stir
up quite a negative conversation. A couple
of comments can turn things in a toxic
direction very quickly,? said another source.
While Kate has never had her own social
media account, Meghan is said to have
deleted a secret Instagram before Christmas
after seeing the negativity levelled against
her. (She deleted her public account before
her engagement to Prince Harry.)
At the same time came claims, reported
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

Harry and Meghan
visiting Bristol Old Vic
Theatre last Friday
WORDS: HARRIET KEAN. PHOTOS: GETTY. DUNCAN LARCOMBE IS AUTHOR OF HARRY: THE INSIDE STORY
by numerous outlets, that since marrying
Meghan, Prince Harry has become ?high
maintenance? with royal staff. Indeed, as
former royal reporter Duncan Larcombe
told us, ?Within the inner circle, there?s been
a change in Harry.? The prince, according
to Larcombe, ?is much more demanding of
the staff around him than perhaps he was
when he was young, free and single?. It was
previously revealed, for example, that
Harry had yelled: ?What Meghan wants,
Meghan gets!? at a royal aide amid the
stress of the build-up to his wedding. He
was also said to have fallen out with Prince
William after he expressed concerns about
the speed of Harry?s relationship with her.
No surprise then that, according to a
well-placed source, ?Harry is under intense
pressure and is completely focused on
ensuring Meghan is happy and feels
welcomed into the family. Previous
relationships have ended because of the
major scrutiny that comes with dating a
member of the royal family. When Harry
met Meghan, he knew something had to
change and became incredibly protective.?
Indeed, last week Grazia learned of a
relationship before Meghan that never hit
the headlines. It ended because the woman
in question was concerned about unwanted
focus and potential abuse from the public.
She apparently feared that being linked to
Prince Harry would overshadow her own
career. According to a source, Harry
?insisted he would protect her?, and when it
ended, he became ?very frustrated. He was
really tired of the fact that every one of his
relationships had met the same hurdle.?
Harry?s frustration at his inability to
protect Meghan was revealed in 2016,
when he took the unprecedented step of
releasing a now famous statement, in which
his team wrote, ?Meghan Markle has been
subject to a wave of abuse and harassment.
Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle?s
safety and is deeply disappointed that he
has not been able to protect her.?
Amid negative headlines about Meghan?s
family last year, another source reported
that Harry was hoping to issue a second
statement defending her, but was advised
against it by his aides. According to
Larcombe, the action on social media is a
step towards taking some sort of control
of the situation. ?It will have been a direct
demand from Harry,? he said. ?They will
have sat down and had crisis talks, and he
would have asked, ?How can we stop this??
?Harry will feel responsible that this extra
attention on Meghan is in some way his fault.
Of course it isn?t ? but that?s how he feels.?

memo that beige is going to be big this
spring. Huge, actually. But while muted,
quietly chic tones of stone, coffee and
caramel undoubtedly make a sophisticate
statement, right now you might want to
consider more of a statement statement.
Enter the happy coat. Bright and bold,
this outrageous outerwear (that?s a
compliment) comes in every shade from
acid hues to punchy primaries. In bracing
block tones, splodgy abstract prints or
amped up checks-on-steroids, the happy
coat is trippy rather than tame. Quiet?
Absolutely not. These are unapologetically
loud, and the ultimate kick-back to grey
skies and moods of deepest, darkest winter.
They are the epitome of feelgood fashion.
?I love the transformative, moodenhancing effect outerwear can have,? says
Moda Operandi?s fashion director Lisa
Aiken. ?It?s easy to get stuck in a ?uniform
dressing? rut in winter. And a bold piece
of outerwear is the perfect antidote.?
The appeal is not one of pure frivolity,
however. Their dopamine-inducing
credentials are matched by their warmthgenerating ones. Metallic puffers, hyperhued heavy wools and cuddly teddy
numbers beat bad moods and bad weather
with equal oomph. The happy coat is as
comforting as a cup of tea but with all the
fizz and sparkle of a glass of champagne.

IT MIGHT BE
TIME TO STOP
LISTENING
TO MICHAEL
JACKSON
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
MICHAEL JACKSON installed a system
of alarms at his Neverland Ranch in
California that would ring if anyone
approached his room. He had them,
according to a new documentary, so he
would have advance warning if anyone was
heading his way. And you, the reader, need
advance warning too, because the next line
is horrific. Jackson had the alarms, it is
alleged, so that he would have time to stop
having oral sex with a prepubescent boy,
and carry on being the King of Pop.
Leaving Neverland ? the BAFTAwinning director Dan Reed?s four-hour
film ? focuses on two testimonies, from
Wade Robson and James Safechuck, men
who claim they were sexually abused by
Jackson as children. The premiere last
week at the Sundance Film Festival in
Salt Lake City left hardened critics shaken.
There are more graphic details online,
or you can wait until the film airs on
Channel 4 next month, armed on your
sofa with a very strong drink.�
The Jackson family reacted with fury.
Reed?s work was, they said, ?a public
lynching? of a man no longer here to
defend himself. He died a decade ago. They
focused on how Robson and Safechuck
previously defended Jackson in court ?
ignoring the fear felt by abuse victims ? and
branded the film ?tabloid?. Fans of Jackson
have been sending hate mail and tweets to
anyone involved with, or backing, the film.
When I suggested on Twitter that it will
be difficult, when you hear details, to listen
to Jackson?s music again, one fan claimed
the men involved were paid ludicrous sums
to lie.燭hey have denied being paid for the
film. What?s been directed at Reed has
been worse, and is just the beginning of a
campaign by those who believe the man
who moonwalked actually walks on water.
In a response to the family, the director
didn?t hold back. ?Every time a song plays,
a cash register goes ka-ching,? he said. ?It
doesn?t surprise me they?ve come out
fighting in defence of their asset... [But my
film is] by an experienced documentarian...
A four-hour piece, is that a tabloid??
Reed has said that, since Robson and
Safechuck now have children of their own,
they wanted to speak out. That?s why the
film has been released, and its impact
will be forever. Or, at the very least, the
singer?s Wikipedia page will have a new
entry, because there are thousands who
won?t accept the findings in the film. For
them, nothing has changed. Jackson is
Jesus with a mic and he remains an
infallible institution.
For the rest of us, Leaving Neverland
Above: Safechuck, as a
child, with Jackson. Right:
Robson in court, 2005
will lead us to question whether Billie Jean
is a suitable song for a wedding disco. Can
we dance to Thriller with the image, as
described by Robson, of a fully-grown
man?s penis in a seven-year-old?s mouth?
Yet Jackson means too much to too many
to imagine this will stop his music. He is
more significant than Gary Glitter.
After all, despite the documentary
Surviving R Kelly, that vulgar man saw his
music streams increase by 16% on Spotify.
Kelly has denied all allegations against him
and has threatened to sue. Fans of Led
Zeppelin have long ignored Jimmy Page
dating a 14-year-old because, I suppose,
they love big riffs. These artists are a part
of a person?s youth and we all fight to
keep that innocence alive. That is why
Jackson supporters will pretend that
alarm bells aren?t ringing, even though
the evidence has made others head
straight to Spotify?s mute feature.
Reed?s film may not change a thing.
There are too many who don?t want to
believe it, or simply won?t watch the
documentary. But to fellow survivors
of sexual assault, the bravery of Robson
and Safechuck will mean everything.

IN OUR LIVES
Celine Dion has had an astonishing
two weeks ? and it couldn?t have
come at a better time, writes
long-time fan Viv Groskop
IT WAS THE PERFECT
Celine in a Balmain
jacket (above),
Alexandre Vauthier
Haute (left), and
Valentino (right)
finale to a show-stopping
two-week extravaganza,
all conducted on the chic
streets of Paris. The star of the
show0? Celine Dion, who shone first at the
couture shows ? crowned ?Paris Couture
Week?s most adventurous? by Vanity Fair
? then parading the City of Light in a
series of head-turning outfits, culminating
in shimmering Balmain outside the Plaza
Athenee Hotel, where she?d been filming
her debut L?Or閍l ad campaign.
Never has there been a more appropriate
time to have a bit ? make that, a lot ? of
Celine in your life.
I?m not surprised the world has finally
caught up with Celine. I have been a fan
since she won the Eurovision Song Contest
for Switzerland in 1988, beating the UK
by one point. (No, she is not Swiss, she is
French Canadian. You don?t have to be a
citizen of the country you represent. And
besides, Celine is beyond such fripperies
as nationality.) On that occasion, she was
already developing her signature style:
tulle skirt, boxy jacket, massive shoulder
pads. Goddess, basically.
Nowadays, the multi-award-winning
singer has a finely tuned sense of theatre
and is not afraid to camp it up to the
max. Whether she?s channelling Dynasty?s
Krystle Carrington in a shoulder-padded
cerise power dress, mixing a multitude of
caramel tones, or working an Alexandre
Vauthier Haute Couture jumpsuit cut in
a severe V to the navel, Celine?s your girl.
So what?s behind Celine 2.0? It might be
linked to last week?s news of a 2020 biopic
of her life, The Power Of Love, touted as
the new Bohemian Rhapsody, where Celine
will be portrayed by French actress Val閞ie
Lemercier. And it can be no coincidence
that tickets for Celine?s only European tour
date in London in July just went on sale.
But 2019 also heralds a year of personal
transformation: it?s the second anniversary
of the death of her husband, Ren� Ang閘il,
with whom she spent 36 years of her life.
She?s also finishing a seven-year residency
in Las Vegas.
Her stylist, Law Roach, has the answer
to Celine?s style resurgence. Speaking to
Grazia last year she said, ?Celine is such a
fashion girl if I?ve ever met one. She loves it!
The world is such a scary place, to have even
a moment of something to take your mind
away from that and make you smile and
chuckle a bit is powerful. We do need that.?
Celine herself acknowledges her fashion
reinvention. ?I?m doing this for me,? she has
said. ?You don?t have to always be the same
and you cannot please everyone all the
time? I want to feel strong, beautiful,
feminine, fierce and sexy.?
Meanwhile, at the time of going to press,
L?Or閍l was remaining tight-lipped about
its new star, other than to say, ?We can
confirm we definitely think Celine Dion
is ?Worth it?.? Ain?t that the truth.

The one silver
lining of the Brexit
shambles? Our
gutsy female MPs

Another week, another
stalemate on Brexit? But the
women putting their necks on
the line in the Commons last
week gave us something to be
proud of, writes Gaby Hinsliff
WOMEN LIKE TO be liked. That?s what
Labour MPs
Yvette Cooper
(above) and
Rachel Reeves
(left)
we?re always told, anyway; that the reason
women still sometimes struggle to make
it to the top is that we?re too reluctant to
take the tough decisions, too keen to get
along with everybody.
Well, tell that to the women of
Westminster. After yet another week of
Brexit gridlock, it would be easy to despair
at the current state of politics. But if there?s
one silver lining, it?s the sight of women
standing up to be counted on both sides
of the debate. Even though it?s female MPs,
not male ones, who bear the brunt of abuse
on social media for striking controversial
positions, they?ve consistently been the
ones willing to stick their heads over the
Brexit parapet. The one upside of an
otherwise fairly nerve-racking Brexit week
is that women politicians showed they
have absolutely no intention of being
squeezed out of the argument, despite
concerted attempts at intimidation.
Labour?s Yvette Cooper has been
nicknamed the ?real leader of the
opposition? for the calm, practical way
she?s tackled Brexit. She and her Labour
colleague Rachel Reeves ? who both tabled
amendments arguing for our departure
from the EU to be delayed beyond March
if it looks like we?re not going to reach
agreement on a smooth exit in time ? may
have lost last week, but don?t be surprised
if that idea comes back on to the table in

Two weeks after giving birth,
Tulip Siddiq made political history
last week by becoming the ?rst
woman MP to vote in Parliament
without leaving her own home.
After years of dithering over
maternity leave arrangements,
Parliament was ?nally prodded
into action by the sight of a
heavily pregnant Siddiq voting in
a wheelchair when she should
have been in hospital giving birth.
Andrea Leadsom, Conservative
leader of the House, announced
a year-long trial of proxy voting ?
when an MP nominates someone
to vote for them ? just in time
for this week?s big Brexit vote.
Siddiq, who got fellow Labour MP
Vicky Foxcroft to do the honours,
tweeted a picture of herself with
baby Raphael, adding, ?Raphael
and I are so grateful
that I can represent
my constituents
in these important
votes.? It?s hoped
the change will
encourage more
parents into politics.

a few days, should Theresa May?s last-ditch
attempts to reopen talks with Brussels fail.
Meanwhile, former Tory minister
Caroline Spelman won the vote on her
amendment ruling out a messy ?no deal?
exit ? which civil servants have warned
could lead to chaos at ports and shortages
of imported food and medicines. Her
pro-European Conservative colleague
Anna Soubry has also defied endless death
threats and ugly street harassment by
far-right activists, while two weeks ago
Labour?s Tulip Siddiq delayed a planned
Caesarean in order to vote on Brexit
? embarrassing Parliament into finally
changing its archaic arrangements for
pregnant MPs in the process.
On the other side, a handful of Labour
women representing deprived areas that
voted to leave the EU are arguing that
their constituents? anger can?t just be
swept under the carpet. Wigan?s Lisa
Nandy, Ashfield?s Gloria De Piero, Don
Valley?s Caroline Flint and Grimsby?s
Melanie Onn have been called traitors
online and threatened with deselection
as MPs (and worse) if they don?t fall into
line with Labour members who want
Brexit stopped. But all insist it would
be wrong to ignore the message from
their towns, even if it?s an uncomfortable
one for many to hear.
?We?ve had so much bad news about
the abuse women in politics get, for
understandable reasons. But I think it?s
really good to see women who are prepared
to stand up and say, ?Politics matters to us
and it matters that this institution stands
for what we care about, whether that?s baby
leave or Brexit,?? says Dr Sarah Childs,
professor of politics and gender at the
University of Birkbeck, who recently wrote
a report for the House of Commons on
making Parliament more female-friendly.
?It?s good to be reminded that women
can do politics well, and that the stories
about what happens to women who
put themselves in the public space
aren?t always negative.?
The debate has also, Dr Childs points
out, shown women politicians working
together across party lines to try and
find practical solutions: ?There?s no
way you would look at this debate
and think women are not a big part
of what?s happening.?
And that hasn?t always been the case
with Brexit, since during the referendum
campaign two years ago both sides were
criticised for sidelining women. If there?s
ever to be a second referendum, at least
that?s one mistake it?s hard to imagine
being repeated.

LAST WEEK BROUGHT
us the winner of least
surprising headline of the
year/millennium ? ?Working
mothers are 40% more
stressed? than anyone else.
No kidding. As I write this, my fourmonth-old is crying through the monitor
and my four-year-old is ransacking the
cupboard next to me, searching for a
colouring book that has ?pictures of
people with legs?. (It seems we have finally
reached ?peak mermaid? in this house.)
Meanwhile, my six-year-old daughter is
asking to read what I?m writing and,
because I?m reluctant to break the news
that being a working mum can sometimes
be a whole shit-heap of stress, I tell her
it?s just a silly story and shut my laptop.
Oh, the irony.
Academics at Essex University have
examined the biological data of more
than 6,000 women and found that chronic
stress levels among those working fulltime with one child are 18% higher than
among child-free working women ? this
figure rose to 40% among women with
two children. Finally, we have scientific
data to back up what many of us already
28
knew and have the wrinkles to prove:
that racing the clock on a daily basis to
make it from work to nursery (often with
a delayed train chucked in for the lols)
is not for the faint-hearted.
I tried it with two children, a husband
who worked away a lot and a great job
on this magazine; reluctantly, I threw
in the towel after 18 months to go
freelance. Why? All sorts of reasons:
double drop-offs, rushed bath times,
murderous thoughts about my fellow
commuters, laundry overwhelm, missing
my kids, getting home to find we were
out of milk (and often dinner) again, and
the realisation that a leisurely wee had
become a weekends-only pleasure.
My income has shrunk, I miss my
colleagues and I suffer frequent pangs
of career anxiety, but I think this is
the best fit for me ? for us ? for now.
I was extremely lucky to have the
choice to opt out of a full-time job.
According to the study, working less
is the only thing that reduces mothers?
chronic stress levels, but this is no solution
whatsoever for millions of women across
the UK who have to work long hours
to make ends meet.
SED...
BY FIONA COWOOD
So what?s the answer? As we?re
frankly all too stressed to have a crack
at dismantling capitalism right now,
we?re going to need to look elsewhere.
Conveniently, you can start with the
person you share a sofa with.
The fact is that, for many mothers,
once the day job is over and the kids
have been tucked into bed, another job
begins. The pay is zero and the to-do list
is tedious. Small things ? play dates,
kids? parties, outgrown uniform ? but
as someone who once burst into tears in
Victoria station over a forgotten school
assembly, let me tell you that it adds up.
(It had been a long week.) The Office
for National Statistics found that women
do around 40% more of the household
chores and childcare than men.
Coincidence? I don?t think so.
So if there?s two of you*, insist on
a job share when it comes to that stuff.
According to science, it?s our best hope
of reducing the working-mother stress
gap ? and one day our daughters will
thank us for it.
(*If you?re a single parent, you?re a hero
and we don?t need data or professors to
tell us that.)

least. The flat Wes and I shared got broken
into earlier this month, then I contracted a
kidney infection and ended up in hospital.
And then, last week, Wes and I broke up.
Break-ups in the public eye are horrible,
it seems like there?s always one person who
tries to vilify the other. But there?s no need
for it. Our relationship was based on
humour, so I wanted to say something
light-hearted when I announced our split.
I decided to parody Gwyneth Paltrow and
Chris Martin?s ?conscious uncoupling?
statement, joking that we would continue
to ?co-parent? our hamster Jon Snow ?
named after Kit Harrington?s Game Of
Thrones character ? and asking the public
to please protect his privacy.
It all ended very amicably. I really love
Wes as a person, but we realised we are in
very different stages of our lives and our
priorities are different. I?m 24 and by the
time I?m 30 I want to be engaged. Wes is
only 20. He?s living his best life.
Being a ?Love Island couple? ? one that
survives for months after the show ends
? comes with its own pressures. There was
a lot of expectation after we left the villa.
Young relationships are hard anyway, but
it?s a different story when everybody is
scrutinising your every move. Love Island is
an idyllic bubble; there?s no stress, no jobs,
no worries. Then suddenly you?re thrust
into the limelight. All the real-life drama
? paying bills, finding somewhere
to live ? only adds to the pressure.
Wes and I were the most doubted couple
in the villa, so we also wanted to prove
everybody wrong. I wasn?t the nasty person
I was made out to be during the show, and
I was so proud when people started to
turn and say that we were the most
genuine couple on it. I really thought he
was The One and that we?d be together
forever. I wanted a serious relationship,
so it?s heartbreaking for me that it didn?t
work out. I also feel disappointed for

Right: Latifa in a
YouTube video before
her escape; with
best friend Tiina
The mystery
of the missing
Arab princess
Latifa Al Maktoum,
daughter of the UAE
Prime Minister, tried to
escape her country a year
ago and has not been seen
since. Her best friend tells
Radhika Sanghani why she
now fears for Latifa?s life
9
IT HAS NOW been one year since Tiina
Jauhiaien last saw her best friend Latifa
Al Maktoum. ?I?m so worried about her,?
she says. ?All she ever wanted to do was just
live her life, but she?s been locked away by
her family. I have no idea how she?s been
treated. I just want to see her again.?
Latifa is a 33-year-old princess ? one of
the many daughters of Sheikh Mohammed
bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President
and Prime Minister of the United Arab
Emirates, and ruler of the Emirate of
Dubai. She has not been seen in public
since she tried to escape Dubai ? and
her family ? on 24 February 2018. In a
YouTube video that she recorded before
her escape, she said her life was like a
gilded prison; she had no freedom to
study, work, leave the country or even
visit friends? homes. She said that she?d
tried to escape the country aged 16 but
was caught at the border, imprisoned
for three years and tortured.
It?s why, she said, she was ready to risk
death by trying to escape one more time: ?I
feel like if this [escape] kills me or if I don?t
make it out alive, at least there?s a video.
But what I?m hoping for after I leave is
that I get my passport and I have freedom
of choice in my life, where I have some
voice, where I don?t have to be silenced.?
Latifa and Tiina, 42, met back in 2010
when the princess hired Tiina as a private
capoeira teacher. They became close friends
and, in 2017, Latifa asked Tiina, who is
Finnish, if she?d help her escape. Tiina
immediately agreed. ?I?d seen first-hand
how Latifa had been oppressed her whole
life,? she says. ?People think she was a
spoiled princess who had everything, but
she wasn?t at all. She was just a woman
who wanted to be free.?
The plan was for Tiina and Latifa to
drive to Oman and then meet Herv�
Jaubert ? a former French spy who?d agreed
to help them ? aboard a yacht off the coast.

Rashid Al Maktoum, with Princess Haya of Jordan
There they?d sail to India, from where Latifa
would fly to the US and claim asylum.
But on 4 March, just 50 miles from
Goa, their yacht was boarded by Indian
coastguards. Tiina says they beat up the crew,
took Latifa away, and sent herself and Herv�
back to Dubai, where they were detained.
?It was terrifying,? says Tiina. ?I had a gun to
my head. Latifa kept screaming ?I?m seeking
political asylum?, but they took her away. I
haven?t seen her since. I?ve been worried sick.?
The UAE government has denied Tiina?s
claims, and in December released a photo of
Latifa with her family and former UN High
Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary
Robinson, claiming Latifa has invented
the allegations. Robinson faced criticism
following the meeting for comments she
made about Latifa being ?troubled?.
But, while Tiina was thrilled to see that
her friend is alive, she believes Latifa has
been drugged and mistreated. ?Her family
have done that to her before. She always
said they?d try to discredit her if she was
caught, and it?s not uncommon in these
countries to invent mental health problems
to discredit women.?
Several human rights organisations,
including Amnesty International, Human
Rights Watch and Detained in Dubai, have
investigated the situation and now support
Tiina?s #FreeLatifa campaign. Amnesty
International has called on the UAE to
?grant Sheikha Al Maktoum full and
unrestricted freedom of movement and
communication with the outside world...
And, more generally, to respect and uphold
women?s rights as legal co-equals with men.?

Mohammed highlighted the plight of these

a new life, after she fled Saudi Arabia and

Latifa?s story is spreading around the
world. Her YouTube video has had more than
2.5 million views, her story was the focus
of a BBC documentary shown before
Christmas ? What Happened To Dubai?s
Princess Latifa? ? leading to high-profile
figures, including Stephen Fry and Noam
Chomsky, boycotting Dubai until Latifa, and
others who are unfairly detained, are released.
?I feel I can be Latifa?s voice, and the
voice of other women in the same position,?
says Tiina, who spent two weeks in a
Dubai prison after the attempted escape,
but was eventually released after worldwide
media attention. ?But I?m just one person
fighting a government. All I hope is that
I can make a difference and keep on raising
awareness until Latifa ? and many other
Middle Eastern women like her ? are free.?

THE TAKE
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
She?s been one of Hollywood?s most
bankable ? and talked about ? actresses.
So on the eve of her 50th ? yes, really ?
birthday, Hannah Betts asks what we can
learn from the greatest girl next door?
JEN AT 50:
SHE?S AT THE
HEIGHT OF
HER POWER
THIS MONTH ? on 11
February, in fact ? actress, film
producer, businesswoman,
philanthropist and style icon
Jennifer Aniston will turn 50. One might
expect the focus to be on what an incredibly
successful half-century this has been, and
how utterly sensational she looks on it.
Instead, because the words ?wife? and
?mother? cannot be added to this list, from
some quarters the reaction is likely to be ? as
it has typically been since Aniston separated
from husband Brad Pitt some 14 years ago
? a collective sigh of ?poor Jen? rather than
the ?fantastic Jen? she so justly deserves.
Among those of us who understand that
a woman is more than her relationship and/
or procreative status, the response will not
only be ?change the record? but also ?read the
room?. Society has changed, and the Jen An
journey needs to change with it, as the actress
herself has not been slow in demanding.
When Aniston and Pitt divorced back
in 2005, we found ourselves mired in the
post-Bridget Jones era, in which single
women without children were stigmatised
as a problem needing to be fixed; not least
single women of ? shriek! ? middle age.
And yet, the proportion of us without
offspring has almost doubled since the
?90s, according to the Office for National
Statistics, with one in five women of my
40-something generation remaining
childless. Among those with degrees born
between 1965 and 1978, the figure rises to
43%, prompting academics to theorise
that, the more intelligent women are, the
less likely they are to seek to reproduce.
Either way, the manner in which we talk
about women?s choices and women?s age
has undergone a fundamental shift.
Grazia has long been part of this
conversation. Jen became single again
the year the magazine launched, and her
repeated appearances on its cover have
reflected the way in which its readers ? and
39
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
TH E TA K E
writers ? have identified with her. We
haven?t always covered ourselves in glory
in this respect: at times, we too succumbed
to the ?poor Jen? lament as she traversed
the highs and lows of relationships with
Vince Vaughn and John Mayer.
Other publications proved even less
woke on the matter. Only last year, when
the actress split from second husband
Justin Theroux, one national newspaper
sly inquired: ?Why Can?t
nnifer Aniston Keep a Man??,
as if we had collectively been
sucked back into the ?50s.
A couple of years before this,
Aniston herself was so weary
of playing the scapegoat for
the world?s anxiety about single
and/or childless women that
he took to the pages of The
Huffington Post to say so. ?For the record,?
our heroine declared, ?I am not pregnant.
What I am is fed up. I?m fed up with the
sport-like scrutiny and body-shaming?
directed at her by ?Is she, or isn?t she??obsessed bump watchers. She added
that she had ?grown tired of being
part of this narrative?.
?Here?s where I come out on this topic,?
she concluded. ?We are complete with or
without a mate, with or without a child?
We don?t need to be married or mothers
to be complete. We get to determine our
own ?happily ever after? for ourselves.?
To which I, and legions of other
independent women, issued an amen.
Over the years, Aniston has become, as
she put it, a ?lens through which we, as a
society, view our mothers, daughters,
sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues?.
Jen is the glowing embodiment of our
cultural expectations, some super-taut
Beverly Hills everywoman, the girl-nextdoor who is no less a Hollywood icon.
Accordingly, in attempting to police her
body and life choices, scrutinisers police all
women, not least the millions of us across
the globe who have rejected the roles that
society traditionally prescribed for us. She
resonates with us because, while she takes
one for the team on an epic scale, ultimately,
we are all expected to take the same shit.
Well, no more. As ever, Aniston
embodies the zeitgeist, and the zeitgeist
is evolving. Time?s Up not only on
sexual harassment, but also on the microaggressions and petty chauvinisms that we
have traditionally put up with. As she
enters her sixth decade, Aniston is having
the last laugh. She has a great career, great

friends, a great life full stop. She is at the
height of her powers: personal, creative,
financial. Not only did she star in the
world?s most successful sitcom, currently
enjoying a revival among Gen Z Netflix
viewers (recent research found that
Friends was the streaming service?s
favourite programme among those
aged five to 16); she has also made
over 30 films, with hot new projects
ever pending. In 2017, she was ranked
second on Forbes? list of highest-paid
actresses. Poor, this woman is not.
Personally, I adore Aniston. I love
her not for her hair, or her body, nor any
of the superficial trappings for which
she has been lionised, but for her dignity,
emotional intelligence and wit. When
she speaks, it is with an authority that
those who feed off her supposed
tatus as the misogynist
onisms they are.
ntastic Jen, we find a champion
ence such reactionaries. Recently,
asserted: ?We live in a society
at messages women: by this age,
ou should be married; by this age,
ou should have children?Why
do we want a happy ending? How
bout just a happy existence?
A happy process? We?re all
n process, constantly.?
For better or worse, Aniston?s
cess will continue to be public
d all of us will learn from it.

Jen?s Mexicanthemed 50th
BY HARRI E T KE AN
As a woman who is known to throw
some of the most A-list celebrations in
recent memory, Jennifer Aniston?s 50th
will no doubt be a seriously good affair.
Indeed, in August 2015, Jen
managed to plan her wedding to
Justin Theroux without the media
or even her closest friends ?nding
out, pretending instead that it was
Justin?s 44th birthday party. Then,
for their honeymoon in Bora Bora,
she took the unconventional
step of bringing along her high-pro?le
friends, including Chelsea Handler,
Courteney Cox and Jason Bateman,.
For her 50th? As Grazia went to
press last week, we were told that the
actress was planning ?a lavish party at
Ellen DeGeneres? and Portia de Rossi?s
$15 million Beverly Hills home? this
weekend, ahead of her 11 February
birthday. The guest list is believed to
include Courteney, Lisa Kudrow, Reese
Witherspoon and Adam Sandler.
True to form, Jen has kept the
details largely hush hush, although the
celebration, according to an LA-based
insider, will be an intimate ?homespun
party with music, Mexican food (Jen?s
favourite) and a tequila bar?. Jen is also
believed to be planning a trip abroad
to mark the milestone. ?She?s going
to be taking an exotic vacation
somewhere,? added our source.
?But it?s under wraps because she
doesn?t want any paps around her.?
The celebrations come as Jen has
landed parts in well-received Net?ix
?lm Dumplin?, as well as Reese
Witherspoon?s latest drama, Top
Of The Morning, for which she is
reportedly earning more than $1
million per episode.
?Jen is feeling really celebratory,?
added the source. ?She wants to go all
out and mark the birthday milestone.
Her friends are all so proud of her
? it?s going to be a big moment of
celebration for her.?

IF JENNIFER ANISTON
2019
42
had embarked on the
#10YearChallenge, it would
have been less of an exercise in
cringe-LOLs and more of a game of spot
the difference. Because despite a life in
the spotlight, when it comes to getting
dressed, Jen has remained immune to
flash-in-the-pan trends and the relentless
pursuit of newness, and instead mastered
a sleek signature style that looks as good
at 50 as it did at 25.
Jen is the quintessential West Coast girl,
as Californian as kale, Moon Juice and
medical marijuana, and her effortlessly
elegant style reflects that. For day, her
look is all about boyfriend denim, some
variation of a white tee or vest, a tailored
azer and a discreet but high-end handbag
ans + designer bag = the Cali girl?s
fficial uniform). It?s a look that is relaxed
t always polished.
For holidays, she turns to a neverding supply of string bikinis. She brings
e same ease to the red carpet, where
rations of the LBD ? preferably short,
eferably sleeveless (all the better for
owing off that gym-honed body) ? and
appy sandals are her go-tos. Sure, there
have been diversions into colour and print
here and there (and, weirdly, dreadlocks,
at the 1999 Emmys), but she always
returns to the tried-and-tested formulas
she knows and loves. Jen is a fad-free zone.
Some people will tell you that?s boring,
but I say, in the social media age when
what?s in is out quicker than you can click
?like?, there is something refreshing
about a woman who knows what she
likes, knows what works for her and
knows exactly who she is.
Understanding your personal
style is indicative of unwavering
self-confidence and impeccable
self-awareness. No, her look isn?t
difficult, dramatic or daring, but
what?s wrong with that?
2010
I used to think, when I read
a profile of a celebrity ?lighting up

journalism. But I once s

As a child, Olivia Gagan?s
family lived in fear of the
debt collector calling. Now
comfortably off, she still
hasn?t shaken off difficult
feelings about her past
?I S T I L L F E E L
ASHAMED THAT
I GREW UP POOR?
here in the uk, it?s rude to talk about
money. It?s crass, inappropriate. You can
interrogate a friend about their love life,
but not about their salary. You can spend
your weekend in their flat, but you mustn?t
ask how they managed to pay for it.
I learned these rules about money much
later in life, because I grew up without it.
Things were tight ? very tight. Job
redundancies ? my parents were both
nurses ? meant they and my brother and I
moved from Manchester to the Isle of Man
to Dorset. We lived in social housing and
my parents took on an array of jobs,
ranging from taxi driving to cleaning to
shop work. We were constantly struggling
to pay the bills and lived on edge that a
knock at the door meant the debt collector
had arrived. A school slip asking for money
for a trip or a Holy Communion dress felt
like a crisis, because that extra � or �
simply didn?t exist. Food shops could be
sources of panic that required mental
arithmetic to avoid the embarrassment
of having to put things back at the till.
I?m now 31 and a journalist and I?m
not poor any more. I feel very lucky
because I don?t have to think too hard
when I?m doing the food shop and I can
pay my rent. I go on holiday and I?ve got
some nice clothes. I don?t present as
someone who grew up skint and I don?t
bring it up in the pub very often, because
I?ve found it?s a buzz-kill. Plus, who?s going
to listen to me when I?m wearing Whistles
and the round of G&Ts I just bought is
another person?s weekly shop?
My current debts are socially acceptable
ones: a student loan and a credit card.
But I?m well-versed in the other, more
crippling kinds. I?m used to mail-order
catalogues with outrageous interest rates,
corner-shop ledgers, loans with silent
default charges and hidden fees. My past
shows in my habits today: I know exactly
what?s in my bank account at any given
moment. There?s a fear, even when things
are going well, that money doesn?t belong
to me and it can disappear as quickly as it
arrives. I often feel guilty and unsure about

Kerry Hudson,
who?s written a
book about
poverty in the UK
buying anything that?s not essential.
We have so many entrenched ideas
about who poor people are: what they do,
what they sound like, how they dress, how
they came to be in that position ? but so
many of the stereotypes aren?t true. I?ve
lost track of the number of confused faces
I?ve seen when someone realises I?m not,
in fact, from a middle-class family. Their
snobby prejudices mean they often assume
all poor people are ?lazy?, ?spongers?, not
well-read or well spoken. And probably
not the kind of person you?d have much
in common with.
We need to fight these prejudices. Not
least because there are now 14 million
people ? one in five ? classed as living in
poverty in the UK. And yet, so few people
feel willing and able to open up about it.
That?s something author Kerry Hudson is
trying to address in her new book, Lowborn,
which is about growing up poor. Kerry?s
childhood was a tough one spent trailing
through council houses and caravan parks.
Her mother, the last in a long line of
women working in Scottish fish factories,
brought up Kerry and her little sister
alone, shifting between Aberdeen,
Northumbria, Canterbury and Norfolk.
As a result, Kerry went to 14 schools
before leaving without qualifications at 15.
Lowborn charts Kerry?s travels to the
places she grew up and reports back on
what poverty looks like in the UK today.
Kerry says she has only felt able to talk
about her upbringing now she?s in her
thirties. Before she started her career as
a writer, in her late twenties, she worked
in the charity sector, scaling the corporate
ladder in London ? but she kept quiet
about her past. ?I didn?t tell people I went
to loads of schools and I didn?t tell people
I grew up on council estates,? she says. ?And
I didn?t tell them because I was already
trying to navigate a very unfamiliar world.?
It?s hard to explain that sense of not
belonging, of feeling deep down that you
come from a different world. And it?s
something I can relate to. Kerry says that
during her first six months of writing
Lowborn she had a recurring dream of being
naked at a fancy tea party. ?It ended up
being an acutely personal book,? she
explains. ?And I was so terrified of that.
Many of the things that are in the book
I?ve never told anyone, except for my
very closest friends and partner.?
Writing it meant revealing painful
experiences, such as having to hold her
school shoes together with Blu Tack,
or going hungry waiting for Monday ?
benefits day ? to come. Moving to wealthy
Canterbury, she says, ?It was very clear
I didn?t have what other kids did. Many
parents didn?t want me playing with their
children.? Even kids can pick up on the
signals that give your status away, she
says ? things like ?a lack of holidays,
clothes that I needed, cinema and 45

swimming trips, enough food in the
cupboards?. The hardest part about writing
her book, Kerry says, ?was facing difficult
things from my past and trusting they
wouldn?t break me or ruin this good
life I?d made for myself ?. The sense of
being ?other?, yet wanting to be liked and
accepted, means it can take years to want
to talk about these things. When I ask her
why she never spoke about her past when
she was younger, she says growing up poor
was shameful. ?Leaving school early was
shameful,? she adds. Shame. Shame. Shame.
The word crops up repeatedly in our
conversation, and it?s a feeling I can
empathise with, which brings us to
Lowborn?s punch-in-the-gut title.
?I wanted to find a way to explain what
it?s like to have this idea that you have been
born into a certain place in society, that
people view you in a certain way ? how
hard it is to change the script when you?re
The poverty trap
The de?nition of poverty in
the UK, according to the Joseph
Rowntree Foundation, is an income
of less than �4 a week for a single
person with no children, or �1
a week for a couple with two
children aged between ?ve and 14.
? One in ?ve UK citizens live in
poverty, including more than 4.5
million children. Child poverty levels
are set to rise signi?cantly over the
next three years, according to the
Institute for Fiscal Studies.
? The area with the highest rate of
child poverty ? 62% ? is Coldhurst in
Oldham, while the local authority
dealing with the highest rate of child
poverty is Tower Hamlets in London,
with 53.4% of children growing up
below the breadline.
? Someone from a black, Asian and
minority ethnic (BAME) background is
twice as likely to experience poverty
as someone from a white background,
with unemployment, racism and
discrimination holding groups back.
? The number of people sleeping
rough in England has increased by
73% in the last three years.

YOU DON?T
CHOOSE TO
BE IN POVERTY.
IT?S NOT A
LAZY OPTION
in a society that reinforces all the time
that if you haven?t pulled yourself up by
your bootstraps you?re somehow bad,
or that it?s a moral failing,? she says.
She also wants to break down the
argument that, if you just work hard
enough, you can lift yourself out of any
financial circumstance ? something I can
relate to. Yes, I put in serious hours to
become a journalist who can pay her bills,
but I also relied on a string of miracles,
kindnesses and privileges. A university
friend?s family loaned me the money for
my journalism training; another friend
cornered me in a pub toilet until I accepted
the cash she was thrusting in my hand so
that I could stay living in London for a few
more weeks. I was also lucky enough to
have parents who unfailingly believed in
me and a teacher who nurtured my writing.
Kerry says she had a number of lucky
breaks, too. ?I met nice people, people who
encouraged me,? she says. She doubts she?d
be able to get the charity job she did in her
twenties today ?because every job seems to
require an unpaid internship first?. This
is why she wants her book to unpick the
myths around social mobility in the UK.
?I think it?s such a dangerous concept.
It gives the impression that anyone
who hasn?t made it out of poverty is
somehow to blame,? she adds.
We both know bright people from
our childhoods who slipped through the
net because they didn?t get access to the
things you need to progress: education,
encouragement and cash. Kerry says that
on the estates where she grew up, ?the kids
and the women were strong and smart and
intelligent, and had so much potential.
They didn?t reach their potential... because
they literally did not exist within a
structure that allowed them to do that.?
Witnessing poverty today breaks her
heart. ?Seeing a woman obviously counting
up to see if she can afford the cost of her
shopping as it goes down the conveyor belt
can still bring me to tears,? she says.
Most of all, though, she hopes Lowborn
evokes empathy. ?You do not choose to
be in poverty. It?s not a lazy option. It
is painful and difficult and really, really
hard? you can read as many statistics
as you want, but I really believe you
sometimes need someone to say, ?This
happened to me. This is my story. And
look, actually, I?m just like you.??
After speaking to Kerry, I?m going
to be doing just that.

?WHY DON?T YOU write letters to
one another?? laments my dad whenever
talking about the dating landscape for
his 20- and 30-something children. ?We
always wrote letters to one another, much
more romantic.?
Perhaps, but it?s 2019, Pops, not 1919,
so we have to make do with dating apps,
aubergine emojis and wondering how
many kisses to put at the end of a message.
Is one small kiss too curt? If you put three
big kisses does that imply you want to
marry them? It?s a confusing jungle out
there these days, so here are a few rules
to help along the way...
1. Either text someone back or stop
engaging. Our phones are never more than
three feet away from us, whether awake,
asleep or on the loo. (Come on, we all do
it.) It?s bad manners to ignore someone?s
message for long stretches of time when
you?ve almost certainly seen it. ?Maybe he
had an accident last night? Maybe he got
hit by a train or fell into the river?? moaned
my friend Emily, after she was stood up
recently by a man called David who?d been
messaging constantly until the day of their
first date, when he suddenly ghosted
her. I wished he had fallen into the river,
but I suspect he was just a dick. Reply or
let them down gently. And avoid rugby
players from South London called David.
2. Don?t give away that you?ve googled
them. This may seem obvious, but I once
went on a date where, every time I started
telling a story, my date ? let?s call him Tim
? would interrupt with, ?Oh yes, I know
about that because you?ve written about it
before, haven?t you?? There?s a line between
interested and creepy. Tim overstepped it.
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
Can you say yes to a date on the same
day? Should you pick up the tab? And
is it ever OK to talk about Brexit?
Let Sophia Money-Coutts navigate
you through today?s dating jungle?
OF DAT
ING
Dating apps have accelerated the process.
Go out, see if you have a nice time, and if
you don?t, well, there?ll be someone else
online you can divert yourself with.
6. Money. I?m talking about heterosexual
couples here, because certain girlfriends
of mine have curiously old-fashioned ideas
about this. Yes, it?s kind if he insists on
paying for the first date, or the first couple
of rounds. But after that you?ve got to step
up and offer, and not just slowly reach for
your purse in that lame, fake way when the
bill comes. We can?t scream about the pay
gap if we?re expecting them to pick up the
tab every time.
3. Likewise, be careful about social
media stalking. Don?t accidentally let
slip something in conversation that you
learned from looking at their Instagram
photos of a Greek holiday three summers
ago. It?s also worth making sure that
certain members of your family understand
it?s easy to get caught out online. ?Who?s
Carol Watkins?? a friend?s date recently
asked her, after they?d been out a few
times. ?My mum. How come?? she
replied. ?Because she?s looked at my
LinkedIn profile 21 times in the past
week,? he said. So best check your
parents? LinkedIn settings, too.
7. Think about your phone?s search
history. Here?s a cautionary tale: on my
first date with a former boyfriend, we were
discussing cars because I sometimes write
about them. He wanted to show me
the model of a particular Porsche, so I
picked up my phone and started tapping
in ?Po...? only for Pornhub to pop up as
the first suggestion. (In my defence, I was
reading Emily Witt?s Future Sex at the
time.) It was an ice-breaker and became
one of those coupley stories we often
laughed about, but at the time I wanted
to run from the bar and fling myself
under a bus. Should you have anything
embarrassing on your phone ? searches for
weird medical conditions, searches for his
ex-girlfriend, Pornhub links ? clear it.
4. If someone asks you out that day and
you?re free, why not go? Forget that
ancient ?don?t say yes to a Saturday night
date after Wednesday? rule. Don?t worry
about seeming too keen or too available.
8. Don?t presume it?s exclusive. We date
like Americans now. People may have
serial dates lined up, and it often feels more
like a job interview than anything more
romantic ? ?Fancy a coffee on Sunday
9. Unless you really, really trust someone,
keep distinguishing features ? eg, your face
? out of naked selfies.
10. Bear in mind that anything you send
someone ? a message, a screenshot, a
picture ? can be shared. Who else heard
the recent, infamous voice-note of the
posh woman berating a man for not
texting her after a one-night stand? ?What
would your mother think? It?s disgusting
behaviour!? scolded the posh woman in a
furious voice-note that rambled on for well
over a minute and went viral. Poor thing.
11. The old sex-on-the-first-date-chestnut.
Don?t tie yourself in knots over this. If
you?re getting on with someone, if you?re
having a lovely time on a first date and
think that maybe you would like to go
home with them, then why not? Safety
rules apply if it?s someone you?ve met via
an app, but I see little point in coming over
all demure if you really like them. Don?t
overthink this one.
12. If you?re feeling despondent about
dating, don?t listen to those who tell you
?it?s a numbers game?. We all know someone
who found their great love via Bumble after
562 previous dates, but this doesn?t have to
be you. Don?t endure dozens of tedious dates
in dingy bars that leave you depressed. If you
feel like a break from dating, do it. Dating
isn?t like council tax, it?s not compulsory.

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman reflects on
motherhood ? whether she has children or not
When Anna Whitehouse?s
husband lost his job, the
tables were turned, with
emotional and financial
consequences that
surprised them both
was never
someone who asked
for more money
at work. My
husband Matt,
on the other hand,
always knew his
value. We had the
same experience as journalists, but for
the first decade of our relationship he
was generally earning �,000 a year
more than me. At the time, I was happy to
assume the lower income role, consumed
by a lack of confidence and a deep sense
that I was lucky to simply be there.
Then, four years ago, he lost his job
? on the day we got the keys to our new
I
home. And in that moment of sheer
financial desperation, my role transformed
into something more primal: a need to
keep a roof over our heads and bring cold,
hard cash to the table.
I?ll never forget the weeks that
followed his redundancy. We were in a
grey, numb fug, trying to remain chipper
for our 18-month-old daughter. She
was a gurning, bumbling reminder to
me of what we had to support, and that
responsibility was like carrying a rucksack
of bricks around. Matt immediately
entered the freelance writing world,
pitching and interviewing at every
turn, but it was a slow game.
While I wanted to talk about the
financial fear that weighed down on our
shoulders, my husband chose a clam-like
approach, insisting all would be fine ? until
a month after he lost his job, I broke down
on a floor smattered with discarded peas
and Lego. I remember shouting across the
kitchen (eyes streaming with ?black tears?,
as my daughter refers to a mascara-laden
cry) that I could take financial ruin, but
I couldn?t take this eerie silence.
That moment felt like a boil had been
lanced ? finally, there was an acceptance
that we had to address this, and
acknowledge how this was affecting us
both. It became clear that the pressure
I now felt had been on my husband?s
shoulders since the day we met. He had
always been the primary provider ? the
gatekeeper of tangible hopes and dreams.
He?d carried almost everything to date,
and it was my turn to offer a hand.
Since that moment, through a mixture of
necessity, fear and sheer determination, I?ve
let go of my reticence to talk money at work.
Having worked in my husband?s shadow for
15 years, I now earn 100% more than he
does from his freelancing. I work as a
presenter on Heart Radio, create branded
content on Mother Pukka ? the parenting
platform I launched in 2015 ? and am
currently co-authoring a parenting book
with Matt. I am the main breadwinner now,
after years of only shuffling a few crumbs
on to the table every month; meanwhile,
he does the bulk of the childcare.
On paper, this set-up makes for a
thoroughly modern marriage. Look
around and you?ll see hordes of men now
rolling up their sleeves and entering a
world of soft-play dates. Take, for instance,
Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina?s
husband or former Yahoo boss Marissa
Mayer?s man, who are routinely
photographed clutching their offspring.
But for us, there has been an emotional
cost with this fiscal shift. While Matt loves
our kids intensely, he would be happier
with a balance that would allow him to
go to the toilet on his own and drink
hot coffee occasionally without hollers

BREADWINNER, EVERYTHING
IN OUR FAMILY CHANGED?
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
Anna (far left, at work)
and Matt (below, at home
with their daughter),
are still navigating
their changed roles
of ?Papa, I need wee wee.?
Our two children, who are five and
one, ask for him in the night, which can be
painful for me ? though sometimes there?s
a secret sense of relief when I?m exhausted.
He knows when they need their jabs and
where to find the Calpol in the underbelly
of our medicine cabinet. Still, every time
they reach for him when I?m cuddling
them, or can only be soothed by him after
a scraped knee, it really hurts. It?s like the
roles have reversed and, in a cruel twist of
fate, neither of us has what we really want.
That ever-elusive balance is sitting there,
perpetually out of reach.
Our day-to-day is punctuated with
everything from passive aggression over
dishwasher stacking to a slight sense of
resentment on his part about his expanded
parental load ? something the new
feminist heroes are not allowed to mutter
for fear of losing their newfound titles.
Throw in frustration over meetings and
IN A CRUEL TWIST
OF FATE, NEITHER
OF US HAS WHAT
WE REALLY WANT
deadlines that have to be put on the
back-burner and you?re edging into
relationship stalemate.
But we?ve navigated our new financial
and familial responsibilities with a regular
airing of dirty laundry. Money chat is
firmly on the table now, and we have a
joint account that?s ours, not mine or his.
We put everything in that ? even though
my mum once whispered in my ear that
I should ?keep some back, just in case?.
Who knows what the future might
hold ? Matt might decide to go back into
full-time employment when the kids are
older. But one thing I do know is that I?m
over being made to feel ?lucky? that I?m
successful at work. I?m lucky to have found
my husband, and that?s the bottom line.

astonishing, international reaction to her short story,
Cat Person. It was published in The New Yorker in
December 2017 ? and five days after it went online,
it went seriously, wildly viral. ?I was blindsided by it.
It hadn?t crossed my mind even once that when the
story came out, people were going to be sending me
requests for think-pieces about #MeToo.?
Cat Person, to refresh your memory, is the story of
Margot, 20, and 34-year-old Robert, who exchange
numbers, develop a promising, flirtatious text chat over
several weeks, then finally go on one awful date. We are
in Margot?s head as she tries again and again to
calculate who enigmatic Robert might be and what he
thinks of her, ultimately enduring
sex that she doesn?t want but feels
too embarrassed to halt. The
story?s queasy look at modern
dating dynamics launched
hundreds of response pieces
about consent and the way we
communicate, at least one satirical
story written from Robert?s
perspective, and an incel
(?involuntary celibate?) Twitter
account that retweeted the
reactions of men (?This happens
to me all the time. Women just
use me and cast me aside?).
Perhaps it shouldn?t have been
surprising that the tale got the
attention it did, bearing in mind
the timing. When it emerged, we were in the eye
of the storm of the #MeToo movement; it was two
months after the first allegations against Harvey
Weinstein, and weeks after the fall of Kevin Spacey
and Louis CK. ?I felt glad and proud that the story
ended up doing the work that it did for #MeToo ?
providing a space for people to have conversations
about their own personal experience,? says Kristen.
That doesn?t mean that she wanted to join in,
however. ?What I felt scared about was the idea that I
myself could serve as a spokesperson. It takes me a long
time to write a story, and when I?ve written it, it?s the
best thing that I could possibly say about that particular
subject. There are people so much better equipped to
guide the conversation in terms of politics.?
What she can do, however, is serve up more
thought-provoking fiction. This month sees the
publication of You Know You Want This, a collection
of stories that she mostly wrote before her viral
moment (Cat Person is one of them), and reportedly
sold afterwards for a $1.2m (�0,000) advance.
Buy it, but be warned: it might not be quite what
you?re expecting. The first story, Bad Boy, is about
a threesome that devolves into something deeply
unpleasant ? many of the others are just as disturbing.
Some have elements of supernatural horror: squirming
parasites, feral humans, black magic. Some critics
have been appalled (a squeamish review in The Times
said ?These rancid fantasies made my flesh crawl?);
personally, I found it unsettling but still thrilling,
imaginative and often bleakly funny.
?When you think about it, Cat Person also has
the structure of a horror movie,? Kristen points out.
?You?re watching a girl go into a house and you?re
thinking, ?Don?t go into the house, don?t go into
the house!? And she keeps going.?
Kristen, 37, grew up in Boston where her father
was a doctor and her mother a nurse. The book?s
dedication reads, ?For my mother,
Carol Roupenian, who taught me
to love what scares me? ? because
it was from her mum?s bookshelf
that she spent her childhood
pilfering scary tales by Stephen
King and Dean Koontz. The
dedication has a deeper meaning,
too: ?There is a theme in a lot of
my stories about people reaching
towards the things that scare or
hurt them, trying to move closer
to what is terrifying in order to
control it.? With Cat Person in
mind, I think this works pretty
well as a metaphor for the perils
of the dating world.
Beyond its most explicitly
creepy moments, what the book really explores is
how hard it is to truly know another person ? and
how often we tell ourselves the comforting lie that
we?ve figured someone out. It?s in the way Margot
constantly guesses at Robert?s feelings. It?s there again
in the excellent The Good Guy, where we meet Ted,
who has seduced woman after woman by designing a
new persona for himself: a sensitive and attentive man,
not like all the others. When he dumps them, they are
outraged to discover that he?s not a good guy after all.
It?s a familiar and well-observed scenario, which
Kristen takes to a grim extreme.
While you shouldn?t expect her
book of dark modern fairy tales
to be an extended reflection on
#MeToo, you can expect it to be
? like Cat Person ? as thoughtprovoking as it is uncomfortable.

GOGGLES, SWIM HATS and a
swimming costume that doesn?t fit
properly ? that is no doubt your
resounding memory of swimming lessons
at school. But think again ? swimming
and water-based exercise is having a
renaissance and it?s doing wonders for
our physical and mental health. A huge
13.2 million of us now swim monthly
and it can only be a good thing, as it
brings a wealth of health benefits.
As well as lowering blood pressure and
stress levels, boosting lung capacity and
improving sleep, the buoyancy of water
(the body carries half its weight when
immersed only to the waist) means
physical pain from stiff joints, injuries
or even weak bones is alleviated, making
it an obvious choice for all ages, fitness
levels and abilities. ?What those who
struggle to exercise will find is that
what they can?t do on dry land, they can
do in water,? says Elaine McNish, head
of health and wellbeing at Swim England.
?You don?t overheat, your joints don?t
feel pressured and you can?t fall over.?
SWIM HAPPY
One in four of us will experience a
mental health problem each year and
research shows the effects of swimming
can help. ?There?s something about the
water that is relaxing to us,? says Elaine,
?and the rhythm of each stroke makes
it almost a practice in moving meditation.?
Lucy Charles, a world champion triathlete,
former Olympic swimmer and Red Bull
representative, agrees, saying it?s the
simplicity of swimming she likes. ?It?s
time where you can be at one with your
own mind.?
And the beauty of swimming is that
you don?t have to be an athlete to take
part. Grazia?s book editor Alexandra
Heminsley, whose book Leap In is about
her journey to swimdom, began swimming
in the sea in her hometown, Brighton. ?It?s
the kindest exercise because you?re, quite
literally, supported by the water,? she says.
?You feel free and weightless, and strokes
like front crawl force you to regulate your
breathing because your face is in the water.?
If you?re not a confident swimmer,

G E T E L E M E N TA L
Making the local lido look a little tame
is open-water swimming, which is
becoming all the rage, both as part of
triathlons as well as on its own. In fact,
a Sports England Active Lives survey
showed a 5.3% increase in people openwater swimming in 2018. So why plunge
into the minus temperatures?
?A quick eight minutes in the ocean
is lovely and meditative,? says Alexandra,
who swims in the sea all year round.
Elaine points out that simply being in the
outdoors has a huge positive impact on
mental health, thanks to the biophilia
hypothesis, which is the idea that humans
have an innate urge to immerse themselves
in nature. And it makes sense ? the saying
?get some fresh air? has long been used to
make things better.
As for long-distance open-water swims?
?People are drawn to the challenge,
the endorphin rush, the freedom and the
overwhelming sense of accomplishment
you feel,? says Lucy, who namechecks
headline-hitting swimmers like Ross
Edgley (who swam the entire coastline
of Britain in 157 days ? rather him
than us) as inspiration for us all. Many
recommend prepping the body with very
short, cold showers and there are societies,
like The Outdoor Swimming Society (of
which Ross is an ambassador), that bring
open-water swimmers together for events
and social occasions. Always make sure to
take safety precautions when swimming in
open water, though ? visit rlss.org.uk for all
the information you?ll need.
SURF AND TURF
Of course, swimming isn?t the only
thing you can do in the water. Surfing
and paddle-boarding are also gaining
popularity and are a great way to exercise
without feeling like you really are. ?There?s
nowhere like the ocean to give you peace
and feel the enormity of nature,? says
Kylie Griffiths, founder of London
Girls Surf Club.
?Surfing means you have to leave your
phone in the car too, be totally out of
touch for a few hours and concentrate on
what you?re doing.? The club orchestrates
surfing trips all over the world, from the
UK to Morocco and Sri Lanka, and Kylie
sees it as a way of bringing stressed-out,
predominantly city-dwelling women
together to do something different, and
fun. ?It?s snowballed in popularity and
this year we?re even putting on a mum
and kids? trip,? she says.
MASTER THE CLASS
Whereas once the pool was only for
breaststroke and front crawl, now there?s a
whole range of different classes that use
water?s resistance to great effect. DW Fitness
First has recently launched an H20 HIIT
class that uses equipment like dumbbells
and boxing gloves on circuit stations for
an all-body workout to rival those on dry
land. ?HIIT is great for burning fat and
lots of calories, while providing more
fitness gains in far less time than steady
state training,? says Rachel Tunstall, group
exercise product manager at DW Fitness
First. ?This is a good alternative for those
who aren?t able to do high-impact sport.?
Another benefit is that while the gym may
feel like one giant peacocking process, in
the water no one can see how uncoordinated
you might be feeling. ?These classes tend to
be more social, which encourages more
people to work out,? points out Elaine.

?Embracing my curls
has been liberating?
as i enter the top floor of a
hip East London studio, I?m
greeted by the whirl of the
photographer?s camera clicking
and, next to a wind machine, a dedicated
hairstylist giving Rochelle Humes?s
curls the Beyonc� treatment.
We?re here to chat about those curls
? or, more specifically, Rochelle?s debut
children?s book, The Mega Magic Hair
Swap, which is all about accepting, loving
and celebrating curly hair. The book
certainly moved me. As the mother of
mixed-heritage seven-year-old twin
daughters, I?ve battled hard to boost the
self-love of my girls who, from as young as
three, have questioned why they don?t have
?normal? straight yellow hair like Elsa from
Disney?s Frozen.
?In this social media world we live in, it?s
really easy to find positives in everyone else
and maybe not so much in yourself,? agrees
Rochelle ? who?s as warm in person as she
appears on screen. She hopes her book will
help make a difference to how the next
generation feel about themselves.
?It starts in school,? she says, ?whether
it?s about hair, skin colour or even the type
of shoes you wear. That?s why I want to
grab hold of my two girls [Alaia-Mai, five,
and Valentina Raine, 23 months] and
shake that out of them now.?
According to a recent UK study, only
1% of children?s books have BAME (black,
Asian and minority ethnic) main characters.
?The publishing industry is in the dark
ages when it comes to representation,?
says Rochelle. ?It just doesn?t reflect the
way we live in our society and schools.?
Rochelle is clearly passionate about
educating kids when they?re young, to
try to build their self-esteem and sense
of self. She?s even curated an Instagram
account, Curls Like Us, to serve as a

Ateh?s top picks
things I use and love for curls on my
account and started receiving thousands
of messages and questions, so I opened a
separate account and it?s grown from there.?
As a teenager in Essex, Rochelle says she
was desperate for straight hair. ?Growing
up, my only hair hero was Scary Spice, and
in the playground playing Spice Girls I was
always Scary Spice, even when I wanted to
be Baby. I was desperate for straight hair.?
Her mum was a paramedic but ran a hair
salon on the side. ?I used to wash people?s
hair for pocket money and beg to have my
hair blow-dried, but the stylists wouldn?t
do it as they said Mum would sack them!
I?d have my hair straightened as a treat.?
Now 29, Rochelle?s crammed an awful
lot into a short space of time. She burst on
to the scene aged just 11 in S Club Juniors,
a spin-off from pop group S Club 7, later
graduating into a fully-fledged pop
princess with The Saturdays, racking up 13
top 10 hits and a number one smash with
What About Us along the way. She?s also
given us all ?couple goals? with husband
Marvin Humes of boy band JLS.
For much of this time, Rochelle?s hair
was poker-straight. ?In the past, like
everyone else, I?ve felt judged and pressured
to look a certain way, whether it?s regarding
my weight or having straight hair.?
Rochelle only recently made the
84
decision to embrace her curls, motivated
by being a mum and trying to encourage
her daughters to love their hair. ?I spent
so many years straightening my hair that
when I wanted it to be curly again, it said
?No! No!? After years of me being so
unkind to my curls, I had to cut off lots
of dead hair and start all over again.?
Rochelle?s crusade for us all to embrace
what nature gave us doesn?t end with her
book; later this year, she will be launching
her own range of children?s products for both
straight and curly hair. ?I wanted to create
something for newborn babies and kids that
was kind, natural, had no perfume and was
easy to find on the high street,? she explains.
Now best known for presenting ?
Rochelle regularly covers for Holly
Willoughby on This Morning, while her
upcoming BBC Saturday night music quiz
show Playlisters will see her co-hosting with
husband Marvin ? she recently attended
the NTA awards, dazzling in white with
her natural curls worn loose: ?Everyone was
dashing out of the rain trying to shelter
while I was loving it for my curls. I love the
humidity on holiday, too. Embracing my
curls has been really liberating.?
Rochelle?s book, ?The Mega Magic Hair
Swap? is out Thursday (�99, Studio Press).

a little shine and moisture to
my hair, which can be very

well, such as frittatas.? (There?s
a very tasty Greek salad frittata
in her new book, Louise Parker:
The 6 Week Programme.)
While salads are presented as the
healthiest of lunches, they might
not be the best option for this time
of year. Healthy chef and author
Jasmine Hemsley says she?s more
of a soup/stew/dhal/kitchari kind
of girl (kitchari is an Ayurvedic
recipe made of two grains, such as
lentils and rice, with spices ? there?s
a recipe in her book East By West).
?They are quick, easy, cheap and
perfect for a cold day,? she says.
I?m a fan of soup myself; one of
my favourites is butternut squash
and ginger, which I make a huge
batch of and eat over the course
of the week. The recipe is so easy
? sweat an onion, then peel, core
and chop a butternut squash. Add
both to a saucepan and cook for
about five minutes. Add fresh,
grated ginger, a stock cube, season,
and cover with hot water. Boil until
everything goes soft, then blend.
Packed lunches do come with
transport issues ? no one wants to
get to work to find a sea of tomato
soup in the bottom of their bag!
The right lunchtime kit is key.
Personally, I?m not that keen
on a flat lunch box, because they
can fall over and leak. For me, a
cup-shaped one is the way forward.
Try the Black & Blum Lunch Pot,
�.95 ? two watertight pots with
a cutlery holder (see above right).
Their stylish Food Flask, �.95,
is also perfect for warm food,
keeping it hot for up to six hours.
The only hazard of having your
lunch with you is trying not to eat
it before 12pm. If you don?t cave in
at 10.30am (a friend of mine always
did and then ate another lunch),
I promise the wait will be worth it.

are you bored of walking into
your local caf�/supermarket and
grabbing the same sandwich every
day? Have you tried most foods
on the menu at Pret and know
how many calories there are in
an avocado and falafel flatbread?
Does the chocolately coconut
bite always slip itself into your
bag against your will? Then may
I suggest bringing your own
lunch into work instead.
There is something immensely
satisfying about eating a lunch you
have made yourself. And not only
will you know exactly what?s gone
into it, but it will also stop you
reaching for the packet of salt ?n?
vinegar crisps winking at you from
the counter. It may just slim down
your cash expenditure, too. For
the record, if you ate a Pret Tuna
Ni鏾ise Salad, �99, a latte at
�45, and a packet of popcorn,
�30, five days a week for 48
weeks of the year, it would total
�857.60, which is staggering.
Now, I know what you?re
thinking ? ?I don?t have time
in the mornings to make lunch?
? but, according to fitness and
nutrition expert Louise Parker, it?s
not necessarily about making a
quinoa salad and herb dressing at
6.30am. ?It needn?t be a faff,? she
says. ?We often coach clients to
cook up double in the evening and
take leftovers into work, or batch
cook recipes that last and travel
The lunch pot
This Black & Blum
upright Lunch Pot has
two stacked
containers, so
you can also
take dessert,
snacks or
a salad
dressing, too.

SHREDDED CRISPY
CHICKEN WITH BL ACK
P E P P E R A N D S A LT
Serves 2
INGREDIENTS
� tbsp salt
� tbsp Chinese five-spice powder
� tbsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp groundnut oil, plus extra for
deep-frying
2 chicken breast fillets, cut into thin strips
50g cornflour
1 egg
1 small onion, cut into strips
� green pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp water
1 tsp sesame oil
METHOD
1 Mix the salt,
?ve-spice powder and black
pepper together in a small bowl and set aside.
2 In a wok or deep saucepan, add enough
groundnut oil to deep-fry the chicken and
heat to 180癈. Coat each piece of chicken
with the corn?our in a bowl and shake off the
excess. In another bowl, beat the egg. Dip
the ?oured chicken pieces into the egg and
return to the corn?our and coat again. Gently
lower the chicken into the oil and fry for
around 3 minutes, turning once or twice so
that each piece browns and cooks evenly.
Remove to a wire rack or a plate lined with
kitchen paper to drain.
3 Heat the 1 tbsp of groundnut oil in a wok
or frying pan until the oil just begins to
smoke. Add the onion and pepper and stir-fry
for 30 seconds on a high heat. Now add the
garlic and mix thoroughly. Add the fried
chicken and evenly sprinkle in the ?ve-spice
mixture, quickly tossing the ingredients
together. Add the water and quickly toss
again, coating each piece. Turn off the heat,
add the sesame oil and serve immediately.
Each week we feature two delicious recipes
? one that?s ideal for when you?re cooking

BE INSPIRED BY A REAL SUPERHERO
You?re invited to our
exclusive screening
of powerful biopic
On The Basis Of Sex
? before everyone else!
Kavanaugh?s controversial appointment
to the US Supreme Court last year, Ruth
Bader Ginsberg ? or RBG to her fans ? is
the feminist hero we all need right now.
Ruth, now 85, shattered the glass ceiling
when she became the second ever woman
to be nominated to the US Supreme Court
in 1993 (at one point, she was the only
serving female judge).
On The Basis Of Sex follows Ruth?s early
life as a student at Harvard Law school,
where she was one of only nine women to
be accepted. She transferred to Columbia
where, despite graduating top of her class,
she struggled to find work ? essentially
because of her gender. This injustice
kick-starts a lifelong commitment to
fight for the rights of the unheard and
blaze a trail for equality.
Starring Academy Award nominee
Felicity Jones as the inimitable Ruth (and
the always brilliant Armie Hammer as her
husband Martin), On The Basis Of Sex is
the fascinating and ground-breaking true
story of how one woman took on sexism
and inequality at the highest level ? and
continues to be an inspiration to us all today.
?On The Basis Of Sex? is in cinemas
nationwide from 22 February

Davies? debut is a right rollicking read
In At The Deep End
Kate Davies
(�. 99, BORO UGH PRESS)
Being properly saucy while having a huge heart is
something most of us aspire to, but Julia makes it
look effortless. Initially she seems like a classic chicklit heroine: bored at work, annoyed by her flatmates,
having shit dates. Then she falls in love ? with a
woman. But not just any woman; someone who sees
sex as a hobby and monogamy as tedium. Fleabaglevel dirty jokes, Eleanor Oliphant-levels of empathy
and a lead character who?s like your best mate spilling
the gossip after a few glasses. Fresh, funny and filthy.

A thriller with a
pleasingly flawed
woman at its heart:
Alison isn?t just
a high-powered
defence lawyer,
but one with a
potentially lying
client, an allconsuming affair
and not enough
time to keep all her
secrets. You?ll start
off reading this for
the murder trial plot
and end up hooked
to find out if Alison
is going to survive.
Fleetwood
Shuttleworth,
an aristocratic
teenage wife who
is desperate to
save her fourth
pregnancy, finds
Alice Grey, a
midwife who
promises to help
her carry a healthy
baby at last. Except
this is the 17th
century and Alice
is embroiled in a
witch trial. Should
Fleetwood help
her or fear her?
1930s Paris: women
with hopes, dreams
and fantastic
bias-cut dresses;
and the men who
are stealing their
limelight. Based
on the real-life
relationship
between iconic
model-turnedphotographer
Lee Miller and
surrealist artist
Man Ray, this is
a deliciously chic
feminist take
on a legend.
Stubborn
Archivist
Yara Rodrigues
Fowler
(� .9 9, FLEET)
A mixture of
poetry, prose and
a smattering of
Portuguese make
this debut uniquely
satisfying. Yara
Rodrigues Fowler?s
story of straddling
two cultures as
a woman torn
between them is
charming, pithy
and moving, while
her tone is both
instantly familiar yet
entirely individual.

The TV remake of
?80s classic war film
Das Boot may not
be on your radar ?
but it should be
AN UNCIVILISED confession. Prior
to watching the TV sequel to the 1981
Nazi submarine thriller Das Boot, I knew
precisely nothing of the original. The name
rang a vague bell, one of those films that
would appear on lists of all-time classics,
snuggled up next to some interminable
prose about Orson Welles. There it would
remain. Frankly, until Tom Hardy and
Harry Styles were cast in Dunkirk,
and with the honourable, tear-stained
exception of Schindler?s List, the world
war epic remained my screen blind-spot,
a genre untapped. As it turned out, this
is very much my bad.
Das Boot has been reconfigured in a
spendy and luxurious TV remake, filmed
in France, Bavaria and Malta, with
international teams working across three
indigenous languages (an English cast
creeps in at the end of episode one).
Whether it bares any resemblance to the
canonised film, I have no idea. For the
first five minutes? footage of a submarine
sinking, while swarthy soldiers with
varying degrees of hipster facial hair say
Our Fathers, shout in German and shoot
themselves in the head, it looked exactly
as I imagined it would. After the opening
credits roll, though, it metamorphoses
into something else entirely.
A translator, Simone Strasser, is
despatched to work for the Gestapo at
La Rochelle, in the occupied territories
Simone Strasser
(Vicky Krieps) is
deployed to occupied
France to work
for the Gestapo
of France. She?s given an unimpressed
housemate, Margot, a secret mission by her
radio controller brother, Frank, and a new
boss, the totalitarian nightmare Commander
Gluck. Her story counterbalances and
humanises the boys on the boat, the U-116
crew despatched for a search-and-destroy
mission somewhere in the Atlantic.
The gripping stuff comes thick, fast and
expediently delivered from thereon in.
Before their first night at sea, the boys
make haste to a local brothel to fuel their
engines. A fire explodes in someone?s face.
Some terrified poor lad faces a firing squad.
Simone is rescued by a French vicar, while
trying to carry out Frank?s commands.
The story moves slyly and unexpectedly.
Its characters immediately engage.
The fate of the boat?s crew hangs over
Simone?s every move. And I start to hang
my head in shame at what turns out to be
compelling TV. Maybe classics are called
classics because they?re, um, classy?
Begins Wednesday, 9pm, Sky Atlantic
One more time
The premise of episodic
comedy Russian Doll may
sound familiar to anyone
who?s seen the ?lm Groundhog
Day. A New York party girl is
stricken by having to live the
last night of her life over and
over, crashing from one New
York nightclub to the next.
The starring turns of Natasha
Lyonne and creator Amy
Poehler may quell any doubts.

who wore pretty, coordinating lingerie
(who doesn?t?), but don?t think you have
the time, money or body to pull it off ?
Then you?re in need of a trip to Asda. Yes,
as in the supermarket. As the We Are Every
Body campaign showcases, the new George

the idea that all of us can have great
lingerie, regardless of budget or boob size.

Comprising three different lines ? with
bras available in sizes 32A to 42F, and
starting at just �? the collection doesn?t
just cater to different body shapes, but
different occasions as well.
The Basics line is all about the everyday
essentials ? think ultra-comfy T-shirt bras
(we suggest you bulk buy!), supportive
sports bras (for help keeping those
resolutions) and super-soft multi-way
and plunge styles. Next there?s the Pretty
collection ? romantic lace styles in a choice
of gorgeous colours from hot fuchsia to
elegant dove grey. And for something
extra-special, the Entice range features
intricate design details like embroidery,
cut-outs and bows ? an elevated collection
that looks and feels way more expensive
than it actually is (a bra is still just �.

Reading Ruby Warrington?s article
?You can never have a heathy
relationship with alcohol? (28 Jan)
was frustrating. Ruby assumes that
everyone who drinks but doesn?t
consider giving up alcohol is in denial about
underlying issues, and similarly seems to suggest that the
majority who drink do so to feel more confident or because
they have an emotional dependence on alcohol. She doesn?t
take into account the many people who try to live
in moderation without over-analysing and having anxieties
over every decision, including whether or not to enjoy a
glass of wine without presuming it is the manifestation of
a physiological crutch. Don?t generalise when it comes to
alcohol ? not everything needs a label. Emma
TURNIPS IN A T WIST
Hilarious to be comparing Polly
Vernon to Piers Morgan, but
they?re both pretty wound up
by vegans, aren?t they?
Meanwhile, we vegans are just
living our lives the kindest way
we can. Polly, maybe the woman
who specified her veganism in
the flatshare ad did it so that
vegan households looking for
extra members would know she
wouldn?t be cooking huge
pieces of meat in their kitchen.
Which is fair enough, isn?t it?
Aren?t people allowed to have
preferences like that? Audrey

OMG, I can?t tell you how
much Ever wondered why you?re
always knackered and your
partner isn?t (28 Jan) resonated
with me. Like Rob, my husband
is helpful and will do any job
? when asked ? but he thinks
I?m nagging, when I?m only
pointing out things that need
doing. I lost my mum while
GRAZIA
pregnant with my first child
(we have two) ? she would have
been amazing at taking some
of the pressure off, so maybe
I expected a lot from him too
fast. This feature made me smile

THE JOY OF ONE
What a refreshing view in
Just because I?m single, don?t
assume I?m a kidult (28 Jan).
It lifted me! At 37, single
and child-free, I?ve always felt
less ?adult? than my married
parent friends. Reading this
has changed my opinion.
I manage my own finances,
keep my household together
and have a full-time
demanding job. I remember
a married friend
once asking me,
?Who mows
your lawn??!
?Grandmasters
of responsibility
? I?ll take that.

WE?VE GOT SO MUCH TIME FOR
RICHARD E GRANT
reassuring about knowing celebrities get
just as starstruck as the rest of us, isn?t
there? We give you Richard E Grant, who
went into meltdown last week after his
icon, Barbra Streisand, finally replied to a
fan letter he wrote to her when he was 14.
The story started when Richard, now
61, excitably posted a selfie outside Barbra
Streisand?s home in LA (where he had just
arrived ahead of the Oscars next month),
alongside a copy of the letter, which he
wrote in the 1970s.
In it, he said his family had been fans
of hers since watching Funny Girl, released
in 1968, and offered her a holiday in
Swaziland, where he grew up.
?I read in the paper that you were feeling
very tired and pressurised by your fame
and failed romance with Mr Ryan O?Neal,?
the 14-year-old Richard wrote. ?I would
like to offer you a two-week holiday,
or longer, at our house, which is very
beautiful with a pool. No one will trouble
you. You will always be welcome.?
And despite Richard asking for a ?hasty
reply?, Barbra only got back to him last
week, after seeing his tweet. ?Dear Richard.
What a wonderful letter you wrote me
when you were 14! And look at you now!?
Cue the meltdown, with Richard in tears
as his daughter read him Barbra?s response
over the phone. ?Am completely crinkle
faced and overcome with emotion,? he said.
Us too Richard, us too?

GOGGLES, SWIM HATS and a
swimming costume that doesn?t fit
properly ? that is no doubt your
resounding memory of swimming lessons
at school. But think again ? swimming
and water-based exercise is having a
renaissance and it?s doing wonders for
our physical and mental health. A huge
13.2 million of us now swim monthly
and it can only be a good thing, as it
brings a wealth of health benefits.
As well as lowering blood pressure and
stress levels, boosting lung capacity and
improving sleep, the buoyancy of water
(the body carries half its weight when
immersed only to the waist) means
physical pain from stiff joints, injuries
or even weak bones is alleviated, making
it an obvious choice for all ages, fitness
levels and abilities. ?What those who
struggle to exercise will find is that
what they can?t do on dry land, they can
do in water,? says Elaine McNish, head
of health and wellbeing at Swim England.
?You don?t overheat, your joints don?t
feel pressured and you can?t fall over.?
SWIM HAPPY
One in four of us will experience a
mental health problem each year and
research shows the effects of swimming
can help. ?There?s something about the
water that is relaxing to us,? says Elaine,
?and the rhythm of each stroke makes
it almost a practice in moving meditation.?
Lucy Charles, a world champion triathlete,
former Olympic swimmer and Red Bull
representative, agrees, saying it?s the
simplicity of swimming she likes. ?It?s
time where you can be at one with your
own mind.?
And the beauty of swimming is that
you don?t have to be an athlete to take
part. Grazia?s book editor Alexandra
Heminsley, whose book Leap In is about
her journey to swimdom, began swimming
in the sea in her hometown, Brighton. ?It?s
the kindest exercise because you?re, quite
literally, supported by the water,? she says.
?You feel free and weightless, and strokes
like front crawl force you to regulate your
breathing because your face is in the water.?
If you?re not a confident swimmer,

G E T E L E M E N TA L
Making the local lido look a little tame
is open-water swimming, which is
becoming all the rage, both as part of
triathlons as well as on its own. In fact,
a Sports England Active Lives survey
showed a 5.3% increase in people openwater swimming in 2018. So why plunge
into the minus temperatures?
?A quick eight minutes in the ocean
is lovely and meditative,? says Alexandra,
who swims in the sea all year round.
Elaine points out that simply being in the
outdoors has a huge positive impact on
mental health, thanks to the biophilia
hypothesis, which is the idea that humans
have an innate urge to immerse themselves
in nature. And it makes sense ? the saying
?get some fresh air? has long been used to
make things better.
As for long-distance open-water swims?
?People are drawn to the challenge,
the endorphin rush, the freedom and the
overwhelming sense of accomplishment
you feel,? says Lucy, who namechecks
headline-hitting swimmers like Ross
Edgley (who swam the entire coastline
of Britain in 157 days ? rather him
than us) as inspiration for us all. Many
recommend prepping the body with very
short, cold showers and there are societies,
like The Outdoor Swimming Society (of
which Ross is an ambassador), that bring
open-water swimmers together for events
and social occasions. Always make sure to
take safety precautions when swimming in
open water, though ? visit rlss.org.uk for all
the information you?ll need.
SURF AND TURF
Of course, swimming isn?t the only
thing you can do in the water. Surfing
and paddle-boarding are also gaining
popularity and are a great way to exercise
without feeling like you really are. ?There?s
nowhere like the ocean to give you peace
and feel the enormity of nature,? says
Kylie Griffiths, founder of London
Girls Surf Club.
?Surfing means you have to leave your
phone in the car too, be totally out of
touch for a few hours and concentrate on
what you?re doing.? The club orchestrates
surfing trips all over the world, from the
UK to Morocco and Sri Lanka, and Kylie
sees it as a way of bringing stressed-out,
predominantly city-dwelling women
together to do something different, and
fun. ?It?s snowballed in popularity and
this year we?re even putting on a mum
and kids? trip,? she says.
MASTER THE CLASS
Whereas once the pool was only for
breaststroke and front crawl, now there?s a
whole range of different classes that use
water?s resistance to great effect. DW Fitness
First has recently launched an H20 HIIT
class that uses equipment like dumbbells
and boxing gloves on circuit stations for
an all-body workout to rival those on dry
land. ?HIIT is great for burning fat and
lots of calories, while providing more
fitness gains in far less time than steady
state training,? says Rachel Tunstall, group
exercise product manager at DW Fitness
First. ?This is a good alternative for those
who aren?t able to do high-impact sport.?
Another benefit is that while the gym may
feel like one giant peacocking process, in
the water no one can see how uncoordinated
you might be feeling. ?These classes tend to
be more social, which encourages more
people to work out,? points out Elaine.

?Embracing my curls
has been liberating?
as i enter the top floor of a
hip East London studio, I?m
greeted by the whirl of the
photographer?s camera clicking
and, next to a wind machine, a dedicated
hairstylist giving Rochelle Humes?s
curls the Beyonc� treatment.
We?re here to chat about those curls
? or, more specifically, Rochelle?s debut
children?s book, The Mega Magic Hair
Swap, which is all about accepting, loving
and celebrating curly hair. The book
certainly moved me. As the mother of
mixed-heritage seven-year-old twin
daughters, I?ve battled hard to boost the
self-love of my girls who, from as young as
three, have questioned why they don?t have
?normal? straight yellow hair like Elsa from
Disney?s Frozen.
?In this social media world we live in, it?s
really easy to find positives in everyone else
and maybe not so much in yourself,? agrees
Rochelle ? who?s as warm in person as she
appears on screen. She hopes her book will
help make a difference to how the next
generation feel about themselves.
?It starts in school,? she says, ?whether
it?s about hair, skin colour or even the type
of shoes you wear. That?s why I want to
grab hold of my two girls [Alaia-Mai, five,
and Valentina Raine, 23 months] and
shake that out of them now.?
According to a recent UK study, only
1% of children?s books have BAME (black,
Asian and minority ethnic) main characters.
?The publishing industry is in the dark
ages when it comes to representation,?
says Rochelle. ?It just doesn?t reflect the
way we live in our society and schools.?
Rochelle is clearly passionate about
educating kids when they?re young, to
try to build their self-esteem and sense
of self. She?s even curated an Instagram
account, Curls Like Us, to serve as a
resource for curly hair care. ?I was posting 83

things I use and love for curls on my
account and started receiving thousands
of messages and questions, so I opened a
separate account and it?s grown from there.?
As a teenager in Essex, Rochelle says she
was desperate for straight hair. ?Growing
up, my only hair hero was Scary Spice, and
in the playground playing Spice Girls I was
always Scary Spice, even when I wanted to
be Baby. I was desperate for straight hair.?
Her mum was a paramedic but ran a hair
salon on the side. ?I used to wash people?s
hair for pocket money and beg to have my
hair blow-dried, but the stylists wouldn?t
do it as they said Mum would sack them!
I?d have my hair straightened as a treat.?
Now 29, Rochelle?s crammed an awful
lot into a short space of time. She burst on
to the scene aged just 11 in S Club Juniors,
a spin-off from pop group S Club 7, later
graduating into a fully-fledged pop
princess with The Saturdays, racking up 13
top 10 hits and a number one smash with
What About Us along the way. She?s also
given us all ?couple goals? with husband
Marvin Humes of boy band JLS.
For much of this time, Rochelle?s hair
was poker-straight. ?In the past, like
everyone else, I?ve felt judged and pressured
to look a certain way, whether it?s regarding
my weight or having straight hair.?
Rochelle only recently made the
84
decision to embrace her curls, motivated
by being a mum and trying to encourage
her daughters to love their hair. ?I spent
so many years straightening my hair that
when I wanted it to be curly again, it said
?No! No!? After years of me being so
unkind to my curls, I had to cut off lots
of dead hair and start all over again.?
Rochelle?s crusade for us all to embrace
what nature gave us doesn?t end with her
book; later this year, she will be launching
her own range of children?s products for both
straight and curly hair. ?I wanted to create
something for newborn babies and kids that
was kind, natural, had no perfume and was
easy to find on the high street,? she explains.
Now best known for presenting ?
Rochelle regularly covers for Holly
Willoughby on This Morning, while her
upcoming BBC Saturday night music quiz
show Playlisters will see her co-hosting with
husband Marvin ? she recently attended
the NTA awards, dazzling in white with
her natural curls worn loose: ?Everyone was
dashing out of the rain trying to shelter
while I was loving it for my curls. I love the
humidity on holiday, too. Embracing my
curls has been really liberating.?
Rochelle?s book, ?The Mega Magic Hair
Swap? is out Thursday (�99, Studio Press).

well, such as frittatas.? (There?s
a very tasty Greek salad frittata
in her new book, Louise Parker:
The 6 Week Programme.)
While salads are presented as the
healthiest of lunches, they might
not be the best option for this time
of year. Healthy chef and author
Jasmine Hemsley says she?s more
of a soup/stew/dhal/kitchari kind
of girl (kitchari is an Ayurvedic
recipe made of two grains, such as
lentils and rice, with spices ? there?s
a recipe in her book East By West).
?They are quick, easy, cheap and
perfect for a cold day,? she says.
I?m a fan of soup myself; one of
my favourites is butternut squash
and ginger, which I make a huge
batch of and eat over the course
of the week. The recipe is so easy
? sweat an onion, then peel, core
and chop a butternut squash. Add
both to a saucepan and cook for
about five minutes. Add fresh,
grated ginger, a stock cube, season,
and cover with hot water. Boil until
everything goes soft, then blend.
Packed lunches do come with
transport issues ? no one wants to
get to work to find a sea of tomato
soup in the bottom of their bag!
The right lunchtime kit is key.
Personally, I?m not that keen
on a flat lunch box, because they
can fall over and leak. For me, a
cup-shaped one is the way forward.
Try the Black & Blum Lunch Pot,
�.95 ? two watertight pots with
a cutlery holder (see above right).
Their stylish Food Flask, �.95,
is also perfect for warm food,
keeping it hot for up to six hours.
The only hazard of having your
lunch with you is trying not to eat
it before 12pm. If you don?t cave in
at 10.30am (a friend of mine always
did and then ate another lunch),
I promise the wait will be worth it.

are you bored of walking into
your local caf�/supermarket and
grabbing the same sandwich every
day? Have you tried most foods
on the menu at Pret and know
how many calories there are in
an avocado and falafel flatbread?
Does the chocolately coconut
bite always slip itself into your
bag against your will? Then may
I suggest bringing your own
lunch into work instead.
There is something immensely
satisfying about eating a lunch you
have made yourself. And not only
will you know exactly what?s gone
into it, but it will also stop you
reaching for the packet of salt ?n?
vinegar crisps winking at you from
the counter. It may just slim down
your cash expenditure, too. For
the record, if you ate a Pret Tuna
Ni鏾ise Salad, �99, a latte at

�30, five days a week for 48
weeks of the year, it would total
�857.60, which is staggering.
Now, I know what you?re
thinking ? ?I don?t have time
in the mornings to make lunch?
? but, according to fitness and
nutrition expert Louise Parker, it?s
not necessarily about making a
quinoa salad and herb dressing at
6.30am. ?It needn?t be a faff,? she
says. ?We often coach clients to
cook up double in the evening and
take leftovers into work, or batch
cook recipes that last and travel

eBay and Vinterior are great, there?s
nothing like heading to an antique
mill to find the best pieces. Old Mill
Antiques houses so many incredible
antique pieces that are now scattered
throughout our home, such as this
vintage sideboard. It?s the perfect
place to spend a Sunday afternoon.

SHREDDED CRISPY
CHICKEN WITH BL ACK
P E P P E R A N D S A LT
Serves 2
INGREDIENTS
� tbsp salt
� tbsp Chinese five-spice powder
� tbsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp groundnut oil, plus extra for
deep-frying
2 chicken breast fillets, cut into thin strips
50g cornflour
1 egg
1 small onion, cut into strips
� green pepper, deseeded and cut into strips
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp water
1 tsp sesame oil
METHOD
1 Mix the salt,
?ve-spice powder and black
pepper together in a small bowl and set aside.
2 In a wok or deep saucepan, add enough
groundnut oil to deep-fry the chicken and
heat to 180癈. Coat each piece of chicken
with the corn?our in a bowl and shake off the
excess. In another bowl, beat the egg. Dip
the ?oured chicken pieces into the egg and
return to the corn?our and coat again. Gently
lower the chicken into the oil and fry for
around 3 minutes, turning once or twice so
that each piece browns and cooks evenly.
Remove to a wire rack or a plate lined with
kitchen paper to drain.
3 Heat the 1 tbsp of groundnut oil in a wok
or frying pan until the oil just begins to
smoke. Add the onion and pepper and stir-fry
for 30 seconds on a high heat. Now add the
garlic and mix thoroughly. Add the fried
chicken and evenly sprinkle in the ?ve-spice
mixture, quickly tossing the ingredients
together. Add the water and quickly toss
again, coating each piece. Turn off the heat,
add the sesame oil and serve immediately.
Each week we feature two delicious recipes
? one that?s ideal for when you?re cooking
just for yourself or for two. The other has
the wow factor, for when you have guests.

BE INSPIRED BY A REAL SUPERHERO
You?re invited to our
exclusive screening
of powerful biopic
On The Basis Of Sex
? before everyone else!
Kavanaugh?s controversial appointment
to the US Supreme Court last year, Ruth
Bader Ginsberg ? or RBG to her fans ? is
the feminist hero we all need right now.
Ruth, now 85, shattered the glass ceiling
when she became the second ever woman
to be nominated to the US Supreme Court
in 1993 (at one point, she was the only
serving female judge).
On The Basis Of Sex follows Ruth?s early
life as a student at Harvard Law school,
where she was one of only nine women to
be accepted. She transferred to Columbia
where, despite graduating top of her class,
she struggled to find work ? essentially
because of her gender. This injustice
kick-starts a lifelong commitment to
fight for the rights of the unheard and
blaze a trail for equality.
Starring Academy Award nominee
Felicity Jones as the inimitable Ruth (and
the always brilliant Armie Hammer as her
husband Martin), On The Basis Of Sex is
the fascinating and ground-breaking true
story of how one woman took on sexism
and inequality at the highest level ? and
continues to be an inspiration to us all today.
?On The Basis Of Sex? is in cinemas
nationwide from 22 February
