iPhone : Endometriosis is a shockingly under-researched, potentially life-threatening condition and yet this study exists and so did that one on the sex-lives of male partners of women with endometriosis. I know the patriarchy shouldn’t shock me anymore but... twitter.com/evopsychgoogle…

iPhone : This evening I saw Fiddler on the Roof. This week I also saw a picture of my great-great-grandfather Aaron for the first time (below). Aaron’s Russian shtetl was liquidated by the Nazis. Thank you to the cast of Fiddler for transporting me back to the lost world of my heritage

Twitter Web App : I (45F) just found out that DH (48M) has given a necklace to someone else for xmas. Is it just a necklace, is it sex and a necklace, or, worst of all, is it likely to be a necklace and love? Please advice. twitter.com/kyleauxren/sta…

Twitter Web App : #TBT from 1993 showing me moving a workplace childcare bill in the house that would have made it mandatory for workplaces to provide childcare for their employees, creating the opportunity for more women with young children to take on full-time employment.

iPhone : I thought everyone’s mums read them Nelson Mandela and Sylvia Pankhurst biographies instead of Biff and Chip (we did get onto Biff and Chip eventually but Mandela and Pankhurst came first) twitter.com/alexharrowsff/…

iPhone : If I worked on the enlightenment, my #academictwitter bio would be “Voltaire or hair? Personally I’d rather talk about Voltaire.”

Twitter Web App : When I was a kid my more orthodox Jewish friends would tell me with distress about being racially accosted in the street fairly frequently. Very sad to know that attacks against all minorities are rising at the moment. twitter.com/jeremycorbyn/s…

Twitter Web App : Faduma is one of my favourite people in politics. A Labour councillor and ex-teacher, she has the experience and talent we need representing us at City Hall. She doesn't have big corporate backers but she just needs £700 more. Donate to Faduma ✊🏿:

Twitter Web App : As a Jewish kid, growing up being told Britain was a 'Christian country' always made me feel very 'othered' and like I was expected to consider myself a guest in my own home. So much solidarity with my Muslim cousins who must be made to feel this 100x more than I ever was❤️ twitter.com/blaiklockBP/st…

iPhone : My brilliant mum, Francesca Klug, appeared on a podcast discussing the history and the contemporary relevance of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention on Human Rights and the UK Human Rights Act. I learnt a lot! directory.libsyn.com/episode/index/…

iPhone : This reminds me of the early twentieth-century feminists in Germany who considered going on ‘birth-strike’ to try and engender peace during WW1 #birthstrike #sexstrike #ClimateEmergency twitter.com/Luisamneubauer…

Twitter Web App : Swotty Labour Against Private Schools You don't always have to choose between taking something to its most extreme logical conclusion and abandoning the principle entirely. Of course I don't think we should take children away at birth and raise them all in institutions in the name of equality 1/2
