Here she comes, Thierry Ennui...

The truth about women 'crying rape'

theguardian.com — There's this idea that a false allegation of sexual assault is the one weapon that shamed women wield. Men have fists and cash and the threat of death; women have this. A shy call to 999 on a Monday morning that leads to the slow sirens of police arresting her ex at work, a sorry officer shielding his head as he falls into the car.

The joy of x in texts, tweets and emails

theguardian.com — I'm pretty loose with my 'x's. Most emails, every text, descend into a quiet cacophony of mwahs, that gentle smack of lip on tooth. I've been this way since email began - my original Hotmail outbox is still there, suspended in internet amber, signatures heavy with xs and the odd o, too - but it wasn't until today that I really questioned it.

Having monograms on your clothes gives them more than a touch of class

theguardian.com — Once upon a time there were bags. There were notepads. There were pyjamas, and you knew they were your pyjamas because you had bought them, worn them, and they lived in your drawer underneath the T-shirt you won in a team-building exercise, and a pair of slipper socks. Those days have passed.

Lights, camera, lipstick: beauty vloggers are changing the face of the make-up industry

theguardian.com — We are in a warm black-walled room in central London and the air is thick with perfume. A group of teenage girls looks from face to face, not sure who should introduce themselves first. To start with they are shy, clutching cups of tea and lip gloss, but as time passes they relax.

Slenderman, Blair Witch… why we love creepy stories

theguardian.com — Walking home after seeing the Blair Witch Project at the local lido multiplex, a thing ran across the pavement in front of me and maybe it was a massive cat or maybe it was a deathly monster. I suppose I'll never know. But this is the joy of horror.

Observer Ethical Awards 2014 winners: Riverford

theguardian.com — Riverford veg boxes are delivered to more than 47,000 homes every week. And they make you feel more than just full and healthy, it makes you feel a bit loved. An organic-delivery business with four farms scattered around the country, each of its boxes comes with an update on news from its mutual co-operative of British farmers, as well as details of all the produce inside.

How mothers can shape the body images of their children

theguardian.com — It's only this year, as a baby has grown inside me, that I've properly understood the dark pressures that come with living in a body that does not feel entirely your own. I've never dieted. I have never tried to change the shape of me.

The everyday fear of violence every woman has to cope with

theguardian.com — Every woman I know has been shouted at by a stranger, has been called a whore, bitch or slut, whispered to, hissed at, threatened, pressed against, rubbed.

Has the Girls revolution come to an end?

theguardian.com — Just as soon as it began, is it over? That glorious period when it looked like had changed the way young women were portrayed, and understood. When it appeared as if from now on young female characters would continue to be written in new and revolutionary ways, with depth and edges, and flashes of terrifying realisation.

The tough questions being faced by today's pro-choicers

theguardian.com — What does it mean to be pro-choice? What does it mean, today, almost 50 years after the Abortion Act, when we say we support the right of a woman to make her own decision about whether she wants to go through with a pregnancy?
