WHEN I first started this very blog back in 2012, I had no idea where it would take me. If indeed anywhere! I had no objectives or game plans, no goals to meet or things I ‘had to do’, just a real urge to write honestly about what it feels like – from my perspective- to be a woman in this world.
*Warning – for context, this post features some swearing so if you’re easily offended then you might want to turn away now. OK, before I begin, I should probably warn you all (yep, another warning) that I’m pretty angry. Which means I’m ready to rant and put the world to rights.
