editor’s letter

After season one of Killing Eve cleaned up at last month’s BAFTAs, Phoebe Waller-Bridge put the show’s success down to the fact that the obsessive relationship between the two female leads tapped into how, as women, we are all fascinated and to some extent obsessed with each other, too. I totally get that, and I’ve been lucky enough to make a career out of it, filling these pages every month with the most interesting, smart and brilliant women. Sometimes I feel enthralled by their life choices – for instance, the three women we speak to in our feature on open relationships (page 51). Others fill me with wonder at their thinking and ability to communicate their ideas, like writer and feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, interviewed on page 54. Sharing emotional…

the rise of global pride

Every June marks Pride month, when the LGBTQIA community comes together across the world to celebrate, throwing the best street parties in town. But this summer, Pride promises to be bigger and better than ever as it marks a historic global anniversary commemorating 50 years since the Stonewall riots, and five decades of LGBTQIA activism. Pride events will be taking place across the UK from May through to the end of August, but June was originally chosen as the month of Pride to commemorate the Stonewall riots. The uprising began when police raided one of New York’s most popular gay clubs in Greenwich Village, which was also a safe haven for transgender people. Thousands were involved in the six-day protest – the first gay rights demonstration to receive major media coverage.…

breaking new ground

‘THE WINDRUSH GENERATION PIONEERED THE BLACK BRITISH ART SCENE’ In the first exhibition of its kind, ‘Get Up, Stand Up Now’ at London’s Somerset House will showcase 100 trailblazing artists of Caribbean and African descent. The artists, which include film director Steve McQueen and author Zadie Smith, span the generations from WWII to present day. Through cross-disciplinary work, the exhibit explores themes still relevant today, such as racism, representation and community. ‘The Windrush generation pioneered the black British art scene, which in turn contributed to a modern multicultural Britain,’ curator Zak Ové, son of Trinidad-born British film-maker Horace Ové tells Marie Claire. His work, and that of his dynamic group of pioneers, inspired the exhibition. ‘These artists speak out through their work to advocate positive change,’ adds Ové. ‘This is a…

women who win

THE CALAIS ‘JUNGLE’ WAS A HUGE TURNING POINT ‘In 2015, while working at the refugee camp, I came across the Good Chance Theatre. They provided a space where people could express themselves, providing hope, escapism and humanity. Coming back to the UK, I wanted to do something alongside the asylum system that was joyful. At Routes, we started running theatre workshops to help women build confidence, English-language skills and have fun in a safe environment.’ CREATING CONNECTIONS AND MORE OPPORTUNITY IS KEY ‘We developed a mentoring programme, which pairs women in our theatre workshop with female mentors from various professional industries. Together they identify the mentee’s goal and how to reach it. One of the mentoring pairs shared a love of art. The mentee was an incredible painter, but hadn’t painted since she’d…

‘i’d reached burnout’

I’ve just smacked Lee Ryan from Blue in the face. He doesn’t deserve to be smacked, I like him a lot. But the road to a perfect cha-cha-cha is – as I discovered on day one of Strictly Come Dancing – a long one. I never did achieve a perfect cha-cha-cha. In fact, my technique (or lack thereof) brought my Strictly journey to an end – a journey I began on the cusp of my 30th year, thinking that it would be a good idea to learn something new. In reality, I learned a whole lot more. And being voted out of the competition was merely a catalyst for the long-building breakdown that followed. I’d recently found myself single after a decade of being in two longterm relationships. I’d moved into my…

LATE NIGHT ★★★★ Mindy Kaling scripts and stars in this brisk, enjoyable comedy about a TV writer hired to pep up a failing chat show. Emma Thompson plays the marvellously grumpy host. SUPPORT THE GIRLS ★★★ Set in a sports bar where the waitresses are the main attraction, Regina Hall and Haley Lu Richardson lead this appealing indie comedy, served up with a side order of charm. GLORIA BELL ★★★ Julianne Moore stars in this remake of Sebastián Lelio’s 2013 movie about a divorcee navigating the dating scene – no, she doesn’t try Tinder. Uplifting and euphoric. YESTERDAY ★★★ In this rom-com directed by Danny Boyle set in a world where The Beatles don’t exist, Himesh Patel (see our interview on page 62), Lily James and, yep, Ed Sheeran are in perfect harmony.…
