Almost 30,000 people have signed the petition calling for compulsory SRE. Maria Miller, Conservative Chair of the select committee agrees. She said "We need to see a change in culture, and that change in culture should be around consent, respect and dignity and that needs to be at the heart of a compulsorily delivered sex and relationship education in all of our schools."
Speaking in Parliament last month, chair of the Women and Equalities Committee - which is currently looking into sexual violence in schools - Maria Miller said: "We need to see a change in culture, and that change in culture should be around consent, respect and dignity and that needs to be at the heart of a compulsorily delivered sex and relationship education in all of our schools."
I took a while to tell my colleagues that I was studying for a PhD in my spare time. I was concerned that they might question my ability to balance a full-time (and full-on) career with doctoral studies in a topic completely unrelated to the industry I work in.

The proportion of female professors in UK universities is too low. The same can be said of women in any full-time, permanent academic position within higher education. This may come as a surprise to many, given that we are talking about a profession rhetorically committed to equality, fairness and opportunity for all.
"Everyone complains about the weather," Mark Twain is supposed to have said, "but no one does anything about it." The same has been true of executive pay in recent years. Although both the amount of money executives earn and the way exec compensation is structured have come under fire from everyone from Occupy protesters to Harvard Business School professors to the occasional CEO, very little has actually changed.
With the explosion of employment litigation - in particular, wage and hour lawsuits - many employers are turning to mandatory arbitration agreements as a strategy to keep defense costs down and avoid class actions. But as more and more companies make mandatory arbitration a condition of employment, the controversy surrounding the legality of such agreements escalates, ...
Each individual jeer or catcall might appear trivial, depending on your viewpoint. But they accumulate. They make a bigger statement about a woman's place, about who is permitted to comment on her body and its desirability, about what she's in the world for, and what's waiting for her if she puts a foot wrong.
In July 2013, Bijan Ebrahimi, a disabled refugee originally from Iran, was beaten to death and his body burned by "vigilante" neighbours in Bristol. His repeated calls for help from Avon and Somerset police in the hours leading up to his murder were ignored, as were his complaints of harassment from neighbours in the months before.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
