This Week in Women: It’s Time to Talk About How Gender Shapes Gun Violence and Global Conflict

This Week in Women is part of a series produced in partnership between Ms. and the Fuller Project for International Reporting. This column is also part of a newsletter; sign up here to receive it regularly.

The gun control debate dominated the news after a mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida on Valentine’s Day left 17 people, including 14 students, dead. The fact that Nikolas Cruz allegedly stalked and threatened his girlfriend before allegedly opening fire on former classmates, coaches, and teachers, didn’t feature strongly in media coverage this week, even though about a quarter of all mass shootings in the U.S. are committed by perpetrators with a history of domestic violence.

Administrators sent Cruz to other schools due to his erratic and threatening behavior, and his mother called the police more than 30 times, including for incidents classified as domestic disturbances, but it didn’t stop him from buying a gun. Without a misdemeanor conviction for domestic violence against a current or former spouse, Cruz could still legally buy a firearm.

This is the so-called “boyfriend loophole,” yet closing this gap in the law hasn’t been raised prominently this week as an effective tool for preventing gun violence, along with banning bump stocks and strengthening background checks. That’s a shame because relative to other issues, there’s quite a lot of bipartisan support around protecting domestic violence victims. More than half of women murdered by men in the U.S. are killed by intimate partners, and in 2015, 55 percent of female victims were killed with a gun. Late last week, Oregon’s House of Representatives passed a bill to close the boyfriend loophole in the state—finally—and banned anyone with a misdemeanor stalking conviction from owning a gun. The legislature was moved to action by the Parkland shootings, however the bill was supported by a female governor, and endorsed last year by Oregon’s National Organization for Women.

Elsewhere in the news, hundreds were killed in Syria earlier this week—including at least 50 women—when forces loyal to Syrian president Bashar al Assad launched an intense bombing campaign. More violence is expected in this seven-year conflict. Women remain left out of the numerous failed efforts to end the war and bring peace, and, as two experts from the Council on Foreign Relations write in CNN, women’s participation in peace negotiations makes an agreement 64 percent less likely to fail.

Politico reported Thursday that the upcoming annual State Department report on global human rights is going to replace the phrase “reproductive rights” with “coercion in population control.” This reflects the influence of the U.S. far right, which equates U.S.-supported efforts to supply women with contraception to population coercion. The Fuller Project reported last year on these far-right groups who say the U.S. encourages abortion of female fetuses in China, which has zero evidence.

But in a sign of progress on equal rights for women, investment banks are creating “gender equality ETFs” that allow investors to put their money into a fund that only invests in companies championing gender equality. Last month, Swiss banking giant UBS became the latest firm to offer this investment option, and half of the companies in the fund are U.S.-based.

And this month on the cover of Glamour magazine, our senior global editor Sophia Jones reports on Afghanistan’s only all-female TV news station, whose broadcasts give viewers “a new image of female strength.” Read Sophia’s excellent story here.

Christina Asquith is founder and editor-in-chief of The Fuller Project for International Reporting.

All the Best Street Style Looks (So Far!) From Milan Fashion Week

images: Imaxtree

If every fashion month city has its own street style vibe, Milan’s looks can only be described Italian chic. No matter the provenance of the street style star, the outfit always has some special Italiano edge. Think: polished but slightly weird; a little off in the best way. Case in point: street style looks from this week in Milan that include hilarious, intentionally misspelled Gucci letterman jackets, frayed-on-purpose knitwear, and suiting that plays with proportions in all the best ways.

London Fashion Week street style: The 3 accessories to invest in NOW

The show goer seal of approval

This London Fashion Week may have been all about the designers’ AW18 collections (have you seen Christopher Bailey’s last ever Burberry show yet?), but if you’re really looking for style inspiration, then you need to look off the catwalk.

When it comes to new brands and trends, fashion editors, influencers and celebrities are always in the know, and trust me when I say that this high street trench coat is about to sell out as a result.

But it’s not just outerwear they know, it’s accessories too (what easier way is there to update an outfit?), and there were a few key pieces I spotted over and over again on the cobbles, which is a sure sign they’re well worth investing in. From the next ‘it’ bag to the hottest sunglasses for spring, here are the accessories to shop now.

The Staud plant pot bag

If you haven’t heard about cult LA brand STAUD yet, you’re missing out. Designed by Sarah Staudinger, formerly of Reformation, it’s got the Alexa Chung and Leandra Medine seal of approval. While last season was all about the cult bucket bag, this season everyone is carrying the ‘plant pot’ bag and we’re SO in.

Shop now: STAUD Moreau macramé and leather bucket bag for £310 from Net-A-Porter

The Anissa Kermiche earrings

Anissa Kermiche’s fortune cookie earrings have been hanging off every stylish earlobe for the past couple of seasons, and there’s no sign of them going away any time soon, especially as sculptural earrings are big news for SS18.

Shop now: ANISSA KERMICHE Mini gold-plated earrings for £190 from Matches Fashion

The slim cat eye sunglasses

This London Fashion Week was mainly sunny (unheard of), and as such all the fashion editors whipped out their sunnies. The style of choice: the super slim cat eye, and I’m loving this Zara version.

Mint green was the theme today 🍈🍐#WellIntoThisColour #FashionWeek #LFW

How This Woman Brought South African Flavor to New York Fashion Week

Nandi Madida is a South African actress, media personality, and fashion designer behind the clothing line Colour—a ready-to-wear label that offers Afrocentric inspired bespoke power suits for women. The aesthetic of the suits are inspired by the rainbow nation, a term describing South Africa and its multicultural diversity. Recently, Madida debuted her collection at New York Fashion Week. So in the midst of the NYFW frenzy, we caught up with Madida to talk about her how she included this year’s theme of ” a celebration of female power” into the design aesthetic.

What inspired your career in fashion design?

What inspired me to enter into the fashion world is the continent of Africa, there are amazing esthetics and very high quality in terms of textiles/fabrics, we have inspired the world with so many of our colors, fabrics, tribal prints, and our culture.

 Nandi Madida Fashion Week

As an African designer, why was it important for you to debut your line at NYFW?

New York is the fashion capital of the world, and what’s paramount for us is to make sure that we are on par with what the world is doing and having our hand on the pulse on what the fashion industry is doing from a global standpoint. An opportunity to show at NYFW is not one we would pass up; how could you? Showing at NYFW is a great way for you as a designer to see where you stand in the industry amongst your peers.

This year, the theme for your collection was a celebration of female power.  How did you showcase this theme through your designs? 

Now more than ever, especially in the US, with the “Me Too” movement and narrative, I wanted to include power suits in the collection—it’s about how the woman wears the suits, which is representative of them being independent, having a voice, taking on whatever they want to in this very patriarchal society that we live in.

You’re also a mom, wife, and media personality, what’s your best advice for making it work on a day-to-day basis? 

I wish that I had the formula to how I “do it all,” but I don’t. You have to take everything as it comes and live your life day by day and stay positive.

Female Activists, Antifur Protesters Fight Their Causes at London Fashion Week

BARE NECESSITIES: Topless, or scantily clad, female activists braved the cold February weather to stage protests during fashion week, capitalizing on the media throngs at shows to gain attention.
On Friday, both PETA supporters and advocates for a more body-inclusive runway caused scenes, shouting out for their respective causes. The antifur contingent had “wear your own skin” painted on their bare torsos, and encouraged passersby to stand up for animals by embracing a vegan wardrobe. On the subject of fur, Elisa Allen, director of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said: “It’s not fabric, and it’s not ours for the taking.”
Meanwhile, the pro-curves protesters held plaques that read “fashion rules rewritten” and wore lingerie by Simply Be, a plus-size brand. American model and actress Hayley Hasselhoff led the way, accompanied by eight activists who demanded to know when more curvaceous women will be seen on runways. Angela Spindler, chief executive officeroff N Brown Group plc, which owns Simply Be, said: “This isn’t about ‘skinny shaming.’ We think that shape should be celebrated irrespective of size.”
The women all got their say – and a few goosebumps.

Say What Now? The Flu Is Killing Up to 4,000 People in the U.S. a Week

If you haven’t already heard, the United States is suffering from a major flu epidemic that’s causing 1 in 10 deaths.

To make matters worse, there’s a shortage of Tamiflu — with prescriptions outpacing last year’s prescriptions by a factor of 10 or even 14 times higher this year in some states.

via Bloomberg:

 

The levels of influenza-like illnesses being reported now are as high as the peak of the swine flu epidemic in 2009, and exceed the last severe seasonal flu outbreak in 2003 when a new strain started circulating, said Anne Schuchat, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s acting director. Swine flu, which swept the globe in 2009 and 2010, sickened 60.8 million Americans, hospitalized 274,304 and killed 12,469, according to CDC data. Deaths from the current outbreak will likely far outstrip those of the 2009-2010 season.

“This is a difficult season, and we can’t predict how much longer the severe season will last,” she said. “I wish there was better news, but everything we are looking at is bad news.”

The primary type of influenza this year hasn’t changed enough from previous seasons to be considered a novel strain, Schuchat said. The agency’s virologists are studying it to determine if there are any other explanations for why it’s been so hard-hitting.

“We have a lot to learn still about influenza,” she said. “It’s a wake-up call about how severe influenza can be, and why we can never let down our guard.”

Deaths from influenza and pneumonia, which are closely tied to each other in the winter months, were responsible for 1 of every 10 deaths last week, and that’s likely to rise, Schuchat said in a conference call Friday. There were 40,414 deaths in the U.S. during the third week of 2018, the most recent data available, and 4,064 were from pneumonia or influenza, according to the CDC data. The number for that week is expected to rise more reports are sent to the agency.

It gets worse. The death toll in future weeks is expected to grow even higher because flu activity is still rising—and the number of deaths follow the flu activity. Hospitalization rates are already approaching total numbers seen at the end of the flu season, which may not be for months.

“Unfortunately, more deaths are likely to happen,” Schuchat said. “Over the next few weeks, we do expect and it would make sense to see more pneumonia and influenza-related deaths. The people who are likely to die are already in the hospital.”

This year’s flu could be more calamitous than outbreaks going back decades, but there’s no way to know for sure. It’s difficult to compare the severity of influenza across seasons for more than a handful of years because of changes in how the virus is handled in the U.S. The CDC started recommending universal vaccination to stop the spread of the virus in 2010, after previously targeting only those in high-risk groups who were most likely to die from an infection.

The agency reported another 10 deaths among children this season, bringing the total to 63 so far. Half had no other medical conditions that would place them in the high-risk category, and only about 20 percent were vaccinated.

The agency only started counting deaths among children in 2004, after a particularly severe season. That year, the number of doctor’s office visits for the flu peaked at 7.6 percent; last week it was 7.7 percent.

Stay healthy, love muffins. If you or anyone you know might be coming down with flu symptoms — seek treatment as soon as possible!

5 Things to Know About Juicy Couture’s First-Ever Fashion Week Show

Welcome to Runway Matters, where we’re delivering notes straight from the runway so you can quickly digest the most important trends and noteworthy moments from the F/W 18 shows.

For some, Juicy Couture is still the brand that will always be tied to early aughts nostalgia, the coolest of-the-moment celebs who wore it, and memories of one of the earliest trend crazes in high school (at least for a millennial). But if you needed further proof that the label, now under the creative direction of Jamie Mizrahi, still deserves some of your closet space, simply take a look at its first Fashion Week show.

Personally, I showed up for Juicy Couture’s runway presentation yesterday not really knowing what to expect. When the brand presented its new look last September, the clothes were cute, there were plenty ofcool athleisure looks, and I practically walked right into Paris Hilton as I was leaving. So while my hopes were high for some playful loungewear and possibly a celeb sighting or two, I was pleasantly surprised by what really caught my eye. There were tons of trends that were elevated and fun, amazing prints use of print, so many incredible coats, and more than a few ensembles that came down the runway that made me think Wow, that’s Juicy Couture? The answer: Under Mizrahi it is. And we’re looking forward to seeing more.

As for the show itself, here’s what mattered.

Just to reiterate, this was Juicy Couture’s first fashion week show. And considering how prevalent the brand has been, especially in the past, that’s a HUGE deal. Here’s the first look to commemorate the moment: A black velour suite and an epic, oversize paillette coat.

I loved the appearance of tie dye on the runway. It had that familiar summery, crafty vibe (full disclosure, I never actually went to summer camp so maybe I’m romanticizing) but all grown up and even cooler than before.

It’s hard not to shop the runway when you’re an editor watching everything debut for the first time. And I was definitely coveting Juicy Couture’s coats to wear ASAP for the rest of this NYFW.

We’re talking about the signature “J” on the zipper. It’s still seen throughout the collection, but the placement on sleek, slim turtlenecks felt super fresh.

While there was so much newness—in silhouettes, print, textures, etc.—for Juicy Couture, the label didn’t disappoint on the athleisure front. Not only were sweatsuits and tracksuits of all kinds mixed into the collection, but every model took her finale walk in some iteration of the brand’s laid-back ensemble.

Simone Biles Talks Starting College This Week After Revealing Larry Nassar Abuse: ‘I Feel Good’

Simone Biles is moving on after revealing the sexual abuse she endured at the hands of disgraced former team USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

“I feel good and I feel a bit of relief because I don’t have to keep it in anymore,” the 20-year-old gymnastics superstar tells PEOPLE. “I have my family supporting me, friends and my group of people I rely on supporting me … But it’s not easy for any of us to go through.”

The gold medal-winning Olympian is gearing up to begin her first day of college on Thursday, and is looking forward to the premiere of her new Lifetime movie, The Simone Biles Story: Courage To Soar.

But as she begins several new chapters in her life, she says talking about her experience with Nassar is still difficult.

“I haven’t really opened up about it, so it was a hard subject for me to speak up about,” she tells PEOPLE.  “Hopefully people realize that they’re not the only ones going through this situation. Hopefully I inspire them to come out and to not be ashamed about it.”

Biles joined gymnasts including Aly Raisman, McKayla Maroney and Gabby Douglas in accusing Nassar of sexual assault. She revealed the abuse in a letter shared to Twitter on Jan. 15.

“For too long I’ve asked myself, ‘Was I too naive? Was it my fault?’ I now know the answers to those questions,” she wrote at the time. “No. No, it was not my fault. No, I will not and should not carry the guilt that belongs to Larry Nassar, USAG, and others.”

She opened up about the abuse in an emotional interview with Today’s Hoda Kotb on Wednesday morning, in which she praised Judge Rosemarie Aquilina for sentencing Nassar to up to 175 years in prison. She echoed the comments to PEOPLE, but adds that the ordeal isn’t over yet.

“It was very sweet of her to let all the survivors come forward and speak on their behalf,” Biles says of Aquilina. “There’s still a lot of work that needs to be done, an independent investigation that needs to be set to see why and how this happened for so long for anyone to really feel comfortable in the sport and get closure.”

Still, in the midst of the scandal, Biles is determined to move forward. The young gymnast has been named global ambassador of University of the People, a non-profit, accredited online university based in California. She is enrolled in the business administration program, per the university’s website.

“I always dreamed of going to college but decided to follow my gymnastics dreams full time, which didn’t make it possible for me,” Biles said in a statement posted on the site. “I had planned to attend UCLA, but had to defer because of my training schedule. I still want to pursue a college degree and the University of the People offers me the flexibility I need to fit in my studies around my career.”

“With me being so busy with training, I don’t have a lot of time to attend a regular university, so University of the People offers me that opportunity, which I wouldn’t have otherwise,” she tells PEOPLE. “Now I can do online and train for the next Games, for the next world championships … I can take time to do both.

As if that weren’t exciting enough, Biles says she’s ecstatic about the Saturday premiere of her new movie, which was based off her 2016 book, Courage to Soar: A Body in Motion, A Life in Balance.

“It was amazing having sent to film and to live through that experience,” she gushes. “I’ve always wanted to see how people saw my gymnastics.”

Work Zen of The Week: Why Follow Your Passion is Overrated Career Advice

While “follow your passion” is a popular career catchphrase, take note. If you’re looking to advance at your job or make money in your business—people don’t pay for your passion they pay you to solve their problems. Another thing to understand is your passion doesn’t always feel good. There will be days when you’ll feel frustrated, tired, and overwhelmed simply because every career comes with its own series of headaches. So, how bad do you want it? If you want to excel in pursuing your passion, you’ll need to understand a few things:

Define your passion 

What’s the industry that your passion falls under? What’s the lifestyle, expectations, and work standards? Find a few people who work in the industry and ask them about a typical day, challenges, and outlook for the field. What strengths are required? How do you want to feel every day? Who are the ideal people that you’d like to surround yourself with? Answering these questions can help you develop realistic expectations for your career journey? If your passion is not tied to a specific role within a career, focus on surrounding yourself with like-minded people who are fearlessly creating their own opportunities or trying out new things.

Focus on a problem or underserved need

To convince people that they should hire you for your “passion,” you’ll have to sell your passion in such a way that people think you’re the perfect person to delight them, alleviate stress, or save them time and money.

Focus on being of service and putting people at the core of what you do

Sure, it’s your career, but it’s really not about you. Someone once said the fastest way to achieve success is to first help others succeed. These are true words to live by as success is often measured by how you’ve contributed to other people’s lives—whether it’s business or personal.

Commit to a daily process and master it

Nowadays social media makes success look way too easy. But if you’ve followed Black Enterprise for some time, you’d know that behind every successful professional is one incredible story of determination and grit. So keep your eyes more on the process instead of the results.

Flu Widespread Across US For Third Straight Week

NEW YORK (AP) — Sick with the flu? You’ve got a lot of company.

The flu blanketed the U.S. again last week for the third straight week. Only Hawaii has been spared.

Last week, 1 in 15 doctor visits were for symptoms of the flu. That’s the highest level since the swine flu pandemic in 2009. The government doesn’t track every flu case but comes up with estimates; one measure is how many people seek medical care for fever, cough, aches and other flu symptoms.

Flu is widespread in every state except Hawaii, and 39 states reported high flu traffic for doctors last week, up from 32.

At this rate, by the end of the season somewhere around 34 million Americans will have gotten sick from the flu, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

Some good news: Hospital stays and deaths from the flu among the elderly so far haven’t been as high as in some other recent flu seasons. However, hospitalization rates for people 50 to 64 — baby boomers, mostly — has been unusually high, CDC officials said in the report, which covers the week ending Jan. 20.

This year’s flu shot targets the strains that are making Americans sick, mostly the H3N2 flu virus. But exactly how well it is working won’t be known until next month. It’s the same main bug from last winter, when the flu season wasn’t so bad. It’s not clear why this season — with the same bug — is worse, some experts said.

“That’s the kicker. This virus really doesn’t look that different from what we saw last year,” said Richard Webby, a flu researcher at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis.

It may be that many of the people getting sick this year managed to avoid infection last year. Or there may be some change in the virus that hasn’t been detected yet, said the CDC’s Dr. Dan Jernigan, in a call with reporters Friday.

Based on patterns from past seasons, it’s likely the flu season will start to wane soon, experts say. There are some places, like California, where the season already seems to be easing, CDC officials said.

“If I was a betting man, I’d put money on it going down,” Webby said. “But I’ve lost money on bets before.”

The season usually peaks in February, but this season started early and took off in December.

Flu is a contagious respiratory illness. It can cause a miserable but relatively mild illness in many people, but more a more severe illness in others. Young children and the elderly are at greatest risk from flu and its complications. In a bad season, there as many as 56,000 deaths connected to the flu.

In the U.S., annual flu shots are recommended for everyone age 6 months or older. Last seasons, about 47 percent of Americans got vaccinated, according to CDC figures.

Tom Ford to Show Men’s at New York Fashion Week

The mystery designer has been identified.
Tom Ford will take the final spot on the men’s portion of the New York Fashion Week calendar next month with a runway show on Feb. 6. The show will be held at 8 p.m. at the Park Avenue Armory, immediately following Joseph Abboud at 7 p.m.
Although Ford has shown his men’s wear in New York in the past, this will mark the first time the designer has shown his men’s collection alone during New York Fashion Week: Men’s. His most recent New York show was in September of 2017 when he kicked off New York Fashion Week with a women’s show at the Armory. His spring 2018 men’s line was shown in Milan.
Last month, the Council of Fashion Designers of America said that it had pushed back the dates of New York Fashion Week: Men’s slightly to Feb. 5 through Feb. 7, immediately preceding the women’s shows that start on Feb. 8 — and creating one big 10-day dual-gender event. At the time, Mark Beckham, vice president of marketing for CFDA, hinted that another “big-name designer” was about to jump onto the men’s calendar, but it took until Monday for Ford to be identified as

This is one of our favorite non-fiction reads of 2018 so far. In Shoba Narayan’s memoir, she’s recently moved back to Bangalore from New York to be with her family. She becomes friends with the milk lady, offers to buy her a cow, and they go off together to find the right one.

Books coming out this week: “Red Clocks,” “So You Want to Talk About Race,” and more

“It’s not a day off. It’s a day on.” Every year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I think of those words that my elementary school teachers used to say before we packed up our backpacks for the three-day weekend. They urged us to remember Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic contributions to the Civil Rights Movement, honor his legacy by giving back, and reflect on his life as a leader.

Years later, that sentiment still rings true. In fact, it’s a call to action that’s more important than ever. Sure, we can take a day off from work or school. But with everything going on in the world right now, there’s no rest from fighting the good fight for justice and equality. So, how can you do that today, this week, and every day? We often turn to books to reflect, educate ourselves, and help us make sense of the world.

Fittingly, the books coming out this week are full of reflection on important topics like race, tolerance, women’s rights, and mental health, to name a few. Here are 14 books coming out this week that you don’t want to miss!

1. Red Clocks by Leni Zumas, out January 16th

Picture of Red Clocks Book
Little, Brown and Company

In a world where abortion is illegal, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and every embryo has the right to life, liberty, and property, what exactly is a woman for? That’s the question that Red Clocks, a feminist dystopian novel, asks. It tells the stories of five women in a distant future that, the more you read, might not feel as far off as you think.

2. So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo, out January 16th

Picture of So You Want to Talk About Race Book
Seal Press

Ijeoma Oluo’s book of essays answers the questions about race that many don’t dare ask. Each chapter tackles a different one, with chapter titles including “What is cultural appropriation?” and “I just got called racist, what do I do now?” So You Want to Talk About Race offers a straightforward, accessible, and empowering discussion about race. Everybody needs to read this book.

3. Everything Here is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee, out January 16th

Picture of Everything Here is Beautiful Book
Pamela Dorman Books

What do you do when you want to help somebody, but it’s never enough? Mira T. Lee’s novel about two sisters takes a unique approach to talking about and portraying mental illness.

More books about mental health, please.

We never tire of reading psychological thrillers, and C.J. Cooke’s I Know My Name is next on our list. It’s about a woman who wakes up shipwrecked on an island in Greece without a clue as to how she got there. The only thing she remembers? Her name. It’s a layered story that you won’t soon forget.

In 1901, at age 16, Evelyn Nesbit was raped by Stanford White. She was a chorus girl and he was a famous architect. Years later, she confided in Harry Thaw, the man she would one day marry. To get revenge, Thaw publicly shot White at Madison Square Garden. The Girl on the Velvet Swing: Sex, Murder, and Madness at the Dawn of the Twentieth Century tells the true story of the murder case and the struggles that Nesbit and Thaw faced in the years after.

Speaking of true crime, don’t miss Truly Devious. Yep, there’s not one but books coming out this week with a true crime theme. It’s the first book in a new YA series about Stevie Bell, a young detective and true crime lover. When she starts at Ellingham Academy, a prestigious boarding school in New England, she makes it her mission to solve the old case of the founder’s missing wife and daughter. As Stevie digs in, twists and turns abound. We won’t spoil anything, but we will say that a huge cliffhanger sets the stage for the next book in the series.

The Winter in Anna is one of those books that starts at the end — with Eric reading an obituary about Anna, a former love. From there, we travel backward to learn about their short but meaningful time together and the lasting impact Anna had on Eric’s life. It’s a beautifully written love story that will leave you reflecting on those who briefly but deeply impacted your own life.

Lulu Guinness Set to Join London Fashion Week Lineup

SHOW TIME: British accessories designer Lulu Guinness is planning to join London Fashion Week schedule in February for the first time in the brand’s 28-year history.
The presentation will take place over two days from Feb. 17-18, so that industry members and consumers can attend.
It promises to be a “sensory and energetic” experience, according to Guinness.
“I’ve created something that is fun, interactive and sharable on social media. What people like about my brand is the playful, witty nature, so it will be a larger-than-life version of that,” she added.
The presentation will also include see-now-buy-now elements, with a selection of items at the event immediately available at the brand’s web site and the Covent Garden flagship.
Guinness said it was the right time to add her name to the British Fashion Council’s official schedule, having expanded her range to include clothing and footwear last year.
“Where else would we debut other than London? This is our home and heart of the brand. We love what the BFC has done for London Fashion Week in the last decade, it’s an exciting time to be part of British fashion,” she added.

This Week in Women: Fighting For A More Just New Year

The new year began as protests over unpaid wages and food scarcity in Iran continued this week, with Iranian women’s rights activists jumping into action, yanking off their hijabs and demanding changes to laws that prevent their free movement and opportunity in the Islamic Republic.

Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad explains here how this movement has been bubbling for months (or longer). Still, activists are cautious given how deadly political instability has been for women in Syria, Egypt, Iraq and elsewhere. The hard lessons of the Syria uprising kept Turks more or less quiet during the attempted coup against Erdogan, who has since detained or arrested thousands of civil servants, police, members of the judiciary, academics and journalists. 

As Trump flirted with the idea of nuclear war against North Korea on Twitter this week, The Washington Post ran two related pieces on women’s role in conflict. The first argues that sexual violence in conflict (rape in Burma, for example) is a security and stability challenge that the military should recognize and respond to, rather than treat as purely a human rights violation.

The second Washington Post article looks at whether Trump’s National Security Strategy considers women’s status worldwide as connected to global stability. Since President Bill Clinton, there’s been growing recognition that removing the oppression of women is a smart tool for maintaining stability. However, President Trump fails to adequately recognize this concept, author Hilary Matfess argues, and has rolled back efforts to empower women, such as funding to improve women’s health and give them access to contraception.

In Saudi Arabia, could this be a banner year for women? On Thursday, Al Arabiya published the “Nine important ways change will unfold in Saudi Arabia this year,” and nearly half of them involve the liberalization of women’s lives. They have already won the right to drive, run for local office, and more. And in 2013, Saudi Arabia criminalized domestic abuse. But CNN notes there is still a lot of work to do. One of the changes in the Kingdom will reopen movie theaters for the first time in over 35 years. The timing couldn’t be better.

Monday morning started off with a full page ad in The New York Times and elsewhere by more than 300 leading Hollywood actresses, agents, writers, directors and producers announcing a multimillion-dollar legal defense fund and “anti-harassment action plan” called Time’s Up. Read their plan and feel confident #MeToo will not disappear.

This news coupled with a Washington Post article on Monday about the wave of women running (finally!) for governor across the U.S., have made me feel pretty excited about this year for women. If 2017 shattered the taboos that silenced so many female victims of sexual assault, 2018 challenges us to solve these problems. It’s only the fifth day of the year, and we’re starting strong. Happy New Year.
