These women are calling on Theresa May to make sex education compulsory - and you can too

telegraph.co.uk — Almost 30,000 people have signed the petition calling for compulsory SRE. Maria Miller, Conservative Chair of the select committee agrees.

From Theorems to Serums, From Cryptology to Cosmology

Porn, 'sluts' and playground groping - yet the government STILL hasn't made sex education compulsory. Let's change that

telegraph.co.uk — 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."

How to juggle a full-time job and a part-time PhD

theguardian.com — 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.

huffingtonpost.co.uk — Each individual jeer or catcall might appear trivial, depending on your viewpoint. But they accumulate.
