"Grassroots activists have always been reliant on public donations. Unfortunately domestic violence campaigners are faced by an unusual set of challenges when it comes to engaging the hearts of potential supporters: privacy issues, accessibility and prejudice."

Me on the murder of Mitch Henriquez and the attempted cover-up by Dutch police:

"One video shows officers holding Henriquez down while he was clearly unconscious and then attempting to pull him into a sitting position when the van arrived. No efforts were made to check his vital signs and the police seemed more concerned with making it look like he was ok; dragging Henriquez to his feet at one point, only to see him collapse back towards the ground."

Who is #GeertWilders? I ask if the politician is a racist, a freedom advocate or just a spoilt child:

The cappuccino is disappearing? Thank God - it's horrible

"Once upon a time, back when men wore spats and people ate whelks in the cinema, the cappuccino was sophisticated. It was the kind of thing one sipped while watching a leggy blonde ride a leopard down the Champs-Élysées."

The news that Starbucks is phasing out cappuccinos is music to the ears of Beulah Devaney, who says no one in their right mind would order it

Urgh that sounds hideous, I tried a couple of flat whites this weekend and they were all awful but I think that was more inexperience on the part of the barista, rather than something being fundamentally wrong with the concept x

Eight ways to help stop human trafficking in Nepal

"1. Set up a small, regular donation, rather than a big one-off sum. In the aftermath of any natural disaster the human impulse is to donate to victims of the tragedy – but the impact of the Nepalese earthquakes will be felt long after donations dry up. Right now people are focusing on survival and it may take weeks or even months to realize the extent of the devastation. At this point the world’s attention will be elsewhere, along with relief efforts, and destitute families will be more vulnerable to traffickers wishing to buy children and pimp out women. Making a small, regular, donation can help counteract this."

With the recent publication of Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on the Decision Not to Have Kids, women and motherhood are center stage in the cultural spotlight. As a response, I've pieced together some flawless advice for how to engage with childless women—because not enough can ever be said about the biological clock!

A woman who says she doesn't want kids will probably change her mind later: It's your duty to inform her of this fact.

How do you fight corruption AND activist burnout in one of the world's most corrupt countries?

Me for CityMetric:

http://www.citymetric.com/politics/russian-activists-are-using-community-website-fight-local-corruption-1189
How do you improve your neighbourhood in a country as corrupt as Russia? Well, in some of its biggest cities, activists are using a website designed to report and address corruption in their local community.

The Bookstore’s Going Out Of Business Sale

"I want to be the person who offers a hug, but I’m worried I’ll still be the one picking over the corpse."

Does the way we acquire books have an impact on the way we read them?

Signs That Agatha Christie Is About To Murder You

"In your previous life you were a medical practitioner and accidentally killed a patient while drunk. Since then you have stopped drinking, changed your name to something with the same initials as your previous name, and moved within 5 miles of the original murder. You have also married the dead patient’s spouse."

Unfriending Tories on Facebook Is Not the Answer

"If we take one thing away from Labour's defeat it should be a determination to communicate better. To step outside our lovely, lefty, social media bubbles and find a way to talk to people we don't agree with."

Why I read what I read in April 2015: http://beulahdevaney.com/?blog=why-i-read-in-april-2015
If you're wondering why this is a *why* I read and not *what* I read list check out my first post in this series here. In April 2015 I read 18 books. 14 by women, 4 by men, 3 by writers of colour (wow, so much for “trying harder next month”). Now enough of that, here's WHY I read them: ...
