editor’s letter

Is it just me or has 2018 gone by in the blink of an eye? But what a year it’s been. While the world feels like a no less crazy and uncertain place than it did 12 months ago – what with Brexit staggering on and Trump, well, Trumping on – who can forget the joy of that summer heatwave, or Harry and Meghan’s nuptials? Or England so nearly making it to the World Cup final and Jodie Whittaker becoming the first female Doctor Who (gracing the cover of our very own 30th birthday issue in the process)? In other good news, there’s been a marked shift in our awareness of the role we each need to play in protecting our planet, so much so that ‘single-use’ (as in plastic) is…

‘the plight of these people cannot be forgotten by the world’

Subara was only 24 when she saw the Burmese military kill her one-year-old baby. A year ago, Subara was holding her youngest son when the military stormed her home. He was snatched from her arms and knifed to death. Subara escaped, grabbed her five and eight-year-olds, and made the gruelling 15-day journey over the border to Bangladesh. One year on, Subara has lived through more tragedy than most of us will experience in a lifetime. Listening to her, all I could think about were my own two daughters, and the horrifying thought of fleeing with my five-year-old, but having to leave my three-year-old behind. The strength shown by Subara was remarkable – what right did I have to cry at her story in the face of her resilience? Sadly, Subara’s experience is…

rohingya crisis: the facts

The Rohingya, an ethnic Muslim minority in Myanmar, are denied recognition as one of the country’s 135 ethnic groups because the Burmese government see them as illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. The majority of Rohingya Muslims live in the western coastal state of Rakhine. More than 700,000 have fled Myanmar since August 2017. A UN fact-finding mission accused Myanmar’s army of a systematic campaign of ethnic cleansing, and a 2018 UN report stated that Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Myanmar leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, did not use ‘her de facto position as head of government, nor her moral authority, to stem or prevent unfolding events in Rakhine’. In September 2018, the International Criminal Court launched an examination into Myanmar’s alleged crimes against the Rohingya. ActionAid staff in Cox’s Bazar, the Bangladeshi city where many…

let it show, let it show, let it show!

If you want your culture with cheer, not chintz this festive season, head to The Book Club, east London, where local artist Lynnie Z will be showcasing her bold portraits of femme fatales until 17 February (below). ‘Women usually exist as muses in art, art mostly created by men – I hope I can give a more empowering representation of women,’ she says. If performance art is your thing, check out the Sex Worker’s Opera – a theatre show created and performed by sex workers and allies at Nottingham Contemporary (5–6 December). For more understated offerings, tour the prestigious BP Portrait Award at the Scottish National Gallery on 15 December, and an ambitious new show at Margate’s Turner Contemporary on 26 January, which combines nature-centric works of Scottish artist Katie…

women who win

LEARNING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE CAME EARLY FOR ME ‘When I was a child, my parents took me to a national park in Costa Rica, where there was this beautiful golden toad native to the area. By the time I had children and wanted to take them there, that species of toad had disappeared. I started asking questions about what had caused this, and even 30 years ago, scientists knew it was connected to increasing temperatures.’ I START WITH OPTIMISM ‘After the 2009 Copenhagen agreement ended in failure, the first step in rebuilding the negotiation process was to reinject optimism. People said the task was too big, too complicated, too expensive. We had to change the conversation to convince people it was possible. My optimism comes from my sense of responsibility: if you’re not…

WHITE BOY RICK Richie Merritt is the titular teen drug-smuggler/FBI informant in this shocking true story. Brit Bel Powley, as Rick’s crack-addict sister, brings her A-game. SORRY TO BOTHER YOU Musician Boots Riley makes his directorial debut with this absurdist comedy. Lakeith Stanfield is the salesman in a bizarre universe. THE OLD MAN & THE GUN Robert Redford says this true-life tale of ‘gentleman’ bank robber Forrest Tucker will be his last film. If so, it’s a classy note to go out on.…
