welcome to the issue

WE’VE SPENT the last few months talking to you about what you love in Grazia – and want from us going forward. We heard you when you said you’re worried about what’s going on in Westminster. So we’ve asked some of the smartest women in Parliament to give us their insider take each week on the issues that will affect your daily lives.

over to you...

WORKPLACE TABOOS Well done Natalie (‘I didn’t tell my boss I was going through IVF’, 25 Mar)! When I talk to my IVF clients, we are commonly looking at fitting self-care into the stress of the working day. It’s so sad to see the lack of time to rest after egg collections and embryo transfers. Definitely time for change, so great to see this article. Avni Trivedi WHEN TWO’S A CROWD I completely agreed with Why it’s time to check your ‘couple privilege’ (25 Mar). There is nothing more annoying than ‘couple crack’, when people seem unable to exist without their significant other. When I was single, I always felt awkward when friends took their boyfriends everywhere and wondered why they never thought of my feelings. Now, I am always conscious of single…

red carpet rebel

Good for Aidy Bryant! (The style star the red carpet needs – now!, 8 Apr). While most female celebrities are busy juicing, starving and slaving away in the gym to get into red-carpet shape, we have Aidy, who has no desire to be a seriously skinny starlet and is comfortable in her own skin. Her choice of fashion is fresh and upbeat – she may not have fashion designers rushing to dress her, but she can turn out a cool outfit on her own. Aidy is doing wearers of plus sizes a huge favour. She is living proof they can look as good as the stick-thin brigade. It should be illegal to call someone fat on the red carpet. And no casting director should be allowed to tell an actress,…

“nobody has a right to sex”

A British judge sparked fury last week when he said he couldn’t think of a more ‘obviously fundamental human right than the right of a man to have sex with his wife’. It’s a statement that would make you roll your eyes if you overheard it in the pub, but coming from a judge it’s terrifying. Nobody has a ‘right’ to sex with anyone, be it their wife, husband or booty call. If people in positions of power perpetuate these dangerous attitudes, it risks taking us back to a time when marital rape was considered acceptable. Instead, how about remembering what’s really a fundamental human right – being able to consent to sex.…

i’ll tell you what i want, what i really, really want

SHHHHH, NOW, my pretties ; no need for alarm! The mag’s had a little joodge, is all! A gussy, a spruce, a polish, a tweak! And I’m still here, look! I made it through the market research process (just ), and now? I know more about what you , the readers, think about me , your loud-mouthed, potty-mouthed, pouty-faced opinionmongerer. What you want from me. What you expect. And I’m fine with it! I’m chill; I’m cool. No, really ! I am, however, thinking that, while we’re on the subject, it might be nice to establish a few things I , your sweary-Mary, full-of-herself wordsplurt, expect from you , the readers: 1. I expect you to be funny To be fair, I expect everyone to be funny, which means I’m often disappointed.…
