“what’s the real reason we’re quitting our jobs?”

In June we put a tasty looking cake on the cover of Stylist with the words “I quit” carefully iced on the top. The article that accompanied it focussed on the growing number of people quitting their jobs as they emerged out of lockdown. It rapidly became our most-read feature of the year. Now there are almost weekly news headlines about the number of people quitting their jobs, and an explosion of advice columns on how to know if you really should. Not that people seem to want the advice… In America, four million people handed in their notice in April – the highest number since resignation records began in 2000. In the UK, 38% of employed people are looking to leave their jobs this year, according to a recent…

“i hope love island never returns”

words: billie bhatia As the latest season of Love Island draws to a predictably anti-climactic end today (the £50k is a drop in the ocean compared to the fortunes the contestants are set to amass), I have my fingers and toes crossed that it won’t return. An ITV2 stalwart, Love Island has been part of our summers for seven long seasons. I was there at the very beginning, hooked, lined and sunk into the mindless television of bronzed bodies bumping and grinding into the night. Sold as young people trying to find love, its early iterations were authentic and captivating. But while the world has undergone drastic and necessary changes over these past years, Love Island hasn’t. Pre-pandemic, I had already given up. As my WhatsApp groups continued to chirp on…

“change is extremely slow; you have to lean on your wisest self”

sandra oh Stylist sits down with Sandra Oh to discuss finding purpose and the power of therapy WORDS: Susan RileyPhotography: PHIL POYNTER I have been banging on about Sandra Oh for years. Years. I was a Grey’s Anatomy die-hard from the show’s very beginning in 2005 and her Cristina Yang was my kind of woman. I do not know how many times I watched her dance it out with ‘her person’ Meredith, or get blasted by that bloody air vent, but I was enough of a superfan for my Stylist colleagues to know that, should the opportunity ever arise to talk to her, I would want it. Obviously Oh is no longer in Grey’s Anatomy. It’s 2021 and Cristina Yang has been heading up a Swiss research hospital since Season 11, so I…

“we cannot abandon these women”

feature The Taliban’s takeover in Afghanistan has created a crisis for all its citizens, but it poses a particularly dire threat to the rights of the women and girls. We must not turn our backs on them, says Sara Bowcutt, managing director of Women For Women International – UK It is hard to believe that even a few months ago, women in Afghanistan were optimistic for their future. “Women here are growing. We’re improving our financial situation and violence against women is decreasing,” said Gul Jan*, a woman from eastern Afghanistan, last December. “I’ve seen many families allowing their daughters to go to school. They’re finishing their courses, going to university and getting jobs. Women in my community are now excited about our opportunities and what we’ve achieved. We’ve gained self-esteem and…

what’s really making you want to quit your job right now

feature From major career changes to moving to a new city, the choices of our peers impact how we feel about our own lives. Stylist explores why we’re more open to influence than ever before WORDS: HANNAH KEEGAN It was the beginning of summer when Kate Brown*, a fashion PR living in London, first began to notice that her colleagues were dropping like flies. Four people on her team of 18 had quit in the past month for a new role at a different ​company or made the leap to go freelance. “Every time I heard about another person leaving, it made me wonder why I hadn’t done it yet,” she says. “I wasn’t learning any more – the job didn’t feel creative or inspiring in the same way it once had. I…
