And yet, Britain has so far refused to do any more to offer them sanctuary.

The secrets of men who grope women on public transport - and how to spot them

The blokeish braying over Theresa May's breasts does us all a disservice

The blokeish braying over Theresa May's breasts does us all a disservice
telegraph.co.uk — The answer, of course, is yes. Politics is still dominated by suits, so a woman on the front bench still stands out like a bird of paradise flying into the foyer of an accountancy firm. And while an inability to blend in with the crowd can work in a politician's favour, the kind of comment Mrs May has attracted does us all a disservice.

Teen pregnancies may be on the way out but what's replacing them could be worse

Women with opinions on the EU - shut your cakeholes! (Don't make Emma Thompson's mistake)
telegraph.co.uk — If you're a pro-European leading lady, you'd better keep your mouth shut. Or should that be your cakehole?
