Our 30th birthday panel of trailblazers set out the future for women

Here’s everything you need to know…

Robert Chadwick

This month marks Marie Claire‘s 30th birthday, a milestone that we are celebrating with a special commemorative October issue featuring none other than Jodie Whittaker, the first ever woman to take on the role of Doctor Who.

‘It’s no coincidence that our 30th birthday October issue cover star is Jodie Whittaker, the first female Dr Who in the show’s 50 year history,’ our editor Trish Halpin announced as she opened our Marie Claire 30th birthday breakfast on the future of women this morning at The Clock Library and Gym, in Marylebone. ‘I think that it demonstrates just how much can change, and an awful lot has changed in the 30 years since Marie Claire was launched.’

Robert Chadwick

‘But we all know that there is so much more that needs to be done to really get to a position of gender equality and to ensure that the voices of women of every creed, colour and age are really truly being heard,’ she continued, going on to introduce a powerhouse female panel to speak on the future for women in work, technology, diversity and sustainability.

Female guests networked over fresh fruit, granola and plenty of caffeine  – hearing the expert insights on the future of women from the panel, and taking away invaluable advice.

These are the most inspirational takeaways from the Marie Claire 30th birthday breakfast, with thanks Carol Bagnald from Black on Silver for making it all possible:

The future of work and women

(Jo Swinson CBE and MP for East Dunbartonshire)

‘Thinking about what’s happened in the workplace in the last 30 years, we have made progress for the position of women,’ explained Jo Swinson MP. ‘We’ve seen a lot of legislative progress – in the 1970s the ladies at the Ford plant campaigned for equal pay which ultimately became legislation in the equal pay act, yet we still don’t have that as a reality over 40 years later. We won new protections for women in terms of maternity leave, and yet still today we have 54,000 women a year in this country losing their jobs because of pregnancy and maternity discrimination. It’s illegal, it’s been illegal for years and yet it still happens.’

‘Yes, there are more women at the top,’ she continued. ‘The number of women in parliament has gone from 3% to 30% so there is progress, but when I was 21 I didn’t think we’d still be having this discussion 20 years later, and it doesn’t feel like progress has been as quick as it should have been.’

What can we do?

Well according to Jo, there are three things that everybody can do to make change.

‘The first is to just sit at the table. Sheryl Sandberg once said that and it really resonated with me. How often have we gone to a meeting and women have sat around at the sidelines or not felt like they could contribute? So sit at the table – you are there on your own merit, and make sure you say something even if you’re scared inside. The second is to amplify the voices of other women. In Obama’s first term, the women in his cabinet decided to praise and amplify each other’s points in order to get them the credit they deserved – something we can all follow. And finally, break the mould – think about how you can challenge stereotypes and have an impact on what young boys and girls will see.’

The future of technology and women

(Anne-Marie Imafidon – co-founder of Stemettes)

‘If we had more women involved in the creation of technology, it would be more altruistic,’ Anne-Marie explained, going on to use the new FitBit period tracker as an example.

‘They put out this feature and it limited a period to ten days which is an interesting restriction to put on something like period tracking,’ she continued. ‘It just goes to show that there should have been more women in the room. We need to make sure that we are there.’

What can we do?

‘We all know the three Rs – reading, writing and arithmetic, but there are now four,’ Anne-Marie explained to the room. ‘We need to re-digital. Digital literacy is something we all need to make sure we’re clued up on. Rather than being just a consumer, we should look to be creators, get ourselves in that room and take control.’

The future of diversity and women

(Ella Hammad – Authentically Ella and Civil/ Tunnel engineer)

‘When I started in construction there were only a few women, and fewer women of colour, and even fewer women that were muslim,’ Ella explained during the panel discussion. ‘There were a lot of things about diversity that really resonated with me. I am treated differently – and not just because I’m a woman, also because I wear a headscarf.’

What can we do?

‘We need to encourage younger girls to get into engineering, and something that I definitely want to encourage is for those young girls to find the role models that I didn’t have when I was growing up,’ Ella explained. ‘My mother was my role model but she wasn’t an engineer, and when I got into engineering, if I had a role model that looked like me, I would have had a clearer idea which path I should take and I’d feel more comfortable and a lot more confident. It is difficult to talk about an issue that you are facing to someone who doesn’t look like you and doesn’t understand it.’

She continued: ‘But we shouldn’t just be trying to raise the number of women in engineering and construction. We need to shatter the misconception that our intellectual abilities are defined by the way we look and the fashion we choose to wear.’

The future of sustainability and women

(Amy Powney – Creative Director of Mother of Pearl)

‘There is a huge campaign going on at the moment with increasing numbers of women wearing t-shirts saying “I’m a feminist”, but I don’t think anyone is actually thinking about the woman that manufactured that t-shirt,’ Amy explained. ‘She probably had no maternity rights and didn’t get paid enough money, and we’re just walking around wearing them flippantly and throwing those t-shirts in the bin at the end of the trend, not thinking about the women earlier in the journey.’

What can we do?

‘It’s not just about us,’ Amy Powney explained. ‘We obviously have issues that we need to deal with here but there are huge problems out there that are bigger than our problems that need addressing. We need to talk about the women in the supply chain and think about them too.’

Amy continued: ‘We are a fast-fashion nation who are consuming clothes very rapidly and throwing them into the bin. We have got circulatory issues, we have got synthetic fibre issues – we are basically killing the world through fashion, and as the women that we are, we need to make choices that can ensure that we look great and save the planet at the same time.’

Robert Chadwick

Discussing these topics – writing about them, tweeting about them and addressing them in forums like this – is what is really going to push the agenda and make change,’ Trish explained to the room, encouraging us all to keep the conversation going.

beauty rituals

To mark Marie Claire UK’s 30th birthday, we have launched our Womankind campaign, hosting a series of trailblazing events to inspire and motivate us in all areas of our life.

This week saw the third Womankind event in the series, which was held at Fabled by Marie Claire’s store in London’s Tottenham Court Road, the ultimate destination for premium and unique beauty brands

In front of a packed audience, the evening saw Marie Claire Deputy Editor, Andrea Thompson, host a panel of woman that included Marie Claire’s very own Senior Beauty Editor Fiona Embleton, consultant dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto and author, podcast host and beauty blogger Estée Lalonde.

Our incredible panel discussed the night’s theme of beauty rituals and being your best you, and we came away not only loving ourselves, but confident in how we can feel our most radiant 24/7.

With each panellist focussing on different aspects of to feel your best, every member of the audience left with tips, tricks, mantras and motivations of how to get the best out of life and themselves, whatever their age.

Here’s what we learned from our incredible panellists:

Dr Anjali Mahto

Dr Anjali Mahto is a consultant dermatologist. She treats and is an expert in a range of skin problems, including acne and psoriasis, as well as being an expert in injectables (botox and fillers). Dr Mahto is also a spokeswoman for the British Skin Foundation.

Dr Mahto on ageing

‘After the age of 25, you lose 1% of your collagen per year …. about 80% of the signs of ageing is because of the sun’

Dr Mahto’s beauty rituals tips

  • ‘Use an SPF
  • Use retinol
  • Use AHAs’

Dr Mahto on adult acne

‘More and more people are developing acne after the age of 23. We don’t know exactly what is causing it… it’s not just down to hormones and genetics.

Dr Mahto on when to start anti-ageing products

‘The best age to start with anti-ageing products is probably 25 to 30. If you have very fair skin, I would probably start closer to 25′

Fiona Embleton

Fiona Embleton is an award-winning beauty journalist and Marie Claire’s Senior Beauty Editor. Prior to joining Marie Claire, Fiona worked on titles including Stylist, Women’s Health and Cosmopolitan.

Fiona’s skincare routine advice

‘I think a good routine is finding what’s good for you and using it consistently… it is navigating what works for you’

Fiona on the benefits of Vitamin C

‘Vitamin C is great for kind of giving your skin a kind of a glow’

Fiona’s tips for city dwellers

‘Living in the city or working in the city, antioxidants play a key role’

A common beauty routine error

‘A big mistake is they apply their eye cream last in their routine’

Fiona’s beauty rituals secret

‘If you’re going to invest in any skincare product it has to be a serum… a serum actually gets deep down into your skin’

Estée Lalonde

Estée Lalonde is a Canadian writer and YouTuber, who makes weekly lifestyle and beauty videos while talking openly and honestly about her life and motivations. She released her debut book in 2016 and launched her podcast series, The Heart Of It, last year.

Estée on her journey to becoming a beauty blogger

‘When I was a teenager I didn’t know anything about skincare… even after all these years I truly feel like I’m learning so much’

Estée on her beauty motivations

‘I’m also so passionate about what beauty can do for people and how it can make them feel’

The three products Estée can’t live without

My favourite face mask that I always feel cleanses my skin is the Fresh Umbrian clay facemask… I can’t live without serum – right now I’m using a brand called Gallinée and I love rosehip oil’

Estée on the power of social media

‘I’m just fascinated about all the Instagram trends, it’s amazing if somebody puts on a purple eyeliner it could be a huge trend the next day’

Estée’s advice for budding beauty bloggers

‘I think things have changed so much since I started. The main thing is consistency and remember that all the successful beauty bloggers you see didn’t start like this…If you don’t comment on people’s posts and you don’t go to events no one will ever discover you. Try to be something unique: what can you offer that isn’t out there? It’s always interesting if you’re doing something different’

San Jose mayor quits FCC committee on local internet, claiming Big Telecom runs the panel

FCC broadband deployment panel

Last year, the new-look Federal Communications Commission under Trump-appointed chairman Ajit Pai founded an advisory committee to examine the deployment of high-speed internet access. The Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee was supposed to bring together ISPs, technology companies, and local communities to work out how to get everyone online cheaply. But according to San Jose’s mayor, who quit the committee yesterday, things haven’t worked out as planned.

Mayor Sam Liccardo alleges that industry interests have taken over the committee, running roughshod over municipal interests. ““It has become abundantly clear that despite the good intentions of several participants, the industry-heavy makeup of BDAC [Broadband Deployment Advisory Committee] will simply relegate the body to being a vehicle for advancing the interests of the telecommunications industry over those of the public,” Liccardo said in a resignation letter that didn’t pull any punches.

Merck, Under Armour, Intel CEOs step down from Trump business panel

TRENTON, N.J. — The CEOs of athletic wear manufacturer Under Armour and pharmaceutical company Merck resigned Monday from the White House’s American Manufacturing Council — with the Merck withdrawal drawing a quick and angry Twitter outburst from President Donald Trump.

Merck CEO Kenneth Frazier cited the president’s failure to explicitly rebuke the white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend. He wrote on Twitter Monday that “America’s leaders must honor our fundamental values by clearly rejecting expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy, which runs counter to the American ideal that all people are created equal.”

Frazier is one of the few African-Americans to head a Fortune 500 company.

Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank resigned from the panel later Monday, saying his company “engages in innovation and sports, not politics.” Plank did not specifically mention Trump or Charlottesville, but said his company will focus on promoting “unity, diversity and inclusion” through sports.

Intel CEO Brian Krzanich also announced his resignation in a blog post.

“I have already made clear my abhorrence at the recent hate-spawned violence in Charlottesville, and earlier today I called on all leaders to condemn the white supremacists and their ilk who marched and committed violence,” he wrote. “I resigned because I want to make progress, while many in Washington seem more concerned with attacking anyone who disagrees with them. We should honor – not attack – those who have stood up for equality and other cherished American values. I hope this will change, and I remain willing to serve when it does.”

Trump was under increasing pressure to call out the white supremacist groups involved in the Charlottesville demonstration. He lashed out almost immediately at Frazier, saying on Twitter that he will now “have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!”

The president followed up later in the day, tweeting that Merck “is a leader in higher & higher drug prices while at the same time taking jobs out of the U.S. Bring jobs back & LOWER PRICES!”

Drugmakers have come under withering criticism for soaring prices in the U.S., including by Trump, though he has yet to act on a promise to contain them.

With the barbs, Trump appeared to attack an industry executive who has tried to make drug pricing somewhat more transparent by revealing his company’s overall drug price changes.

In January, Merck reported that its average net prices — the amount the company receives after discounts and other rebates — increased in the years since 2010 in a range between 3.4 percent and 6.2 percent per year. That’s about half as large as the increase in its retail prices. Much of the furor over drug prices recently has been over increases that have been far bigger and come one after another for drugs that have been on the market for years.

The exchange lit up social media early Monday, with many people lauding Frazier and blasting the president. Trump eventually made a statement condemning bigotry Monday afternoon at a press conference.

Meanwhile, other executives stated their support for Frazier.

Unilever CEO Paul Polman wrote on Twitter, “Thanks @Merck Ken Frazier for strong leadership to stand up for the moral values that made this country what it is.”

Frazier, who grew up in a poor neighborhood in Philadelphia, resigned from the manufacturing advisory council days after one person was killed and others wounded in violent clashes between white supremacists and protesters.

Frazier and his siblings were raised by their janitor father after their mother died when they were very young. He has earned a reputation as a risk taker in the drug industry, pouring money into daunting research areas, particularly trying to develop a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.

Frazier is not the first executive to resign from advisory councils serving Trump.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk resigned from the manufacturing council in June, and two other advisory groups to the president, after the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement. Walt Disney Co. Chairman and CEO Bob Iger resigned for the same reason from the President’s Strategic and Policy Forum, which Trump established to advise him on how government policy impacts economic growth and job creation.

William Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said he couldn’t “think of a parallel example” of any president responding as viciously as Trump to a CEO departing an advisory council.

The manufacturing jobs council had 28 members initially, but it has shrunk since it was formed earlier this year as executives retire, are replaced, or, as with Frazier and Musk, resign.

William Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said he couldn’t “think of a parallel example” of any president responding as viciously as Trump to a CEO departing an advisory council.

“Usually, certain niceties are observed to smooth over a rupture,” said Galston, who served as a domestic policy aide in the Clinton administration.

“We’ve learned that as president, Mr. Trump is behaving exactly as he did as a candidate,” Galston said. “He knows only one mode: When attacked, hit back harder.”
