welcome to the issue

FINALLY, BABY SUSSEX has arrived – and boy what a week of twists and turns, from the dramatic announcement (when all else fails, blame email) to the totally unexpected name, Archie (cute). But who could fail to get swept up in Meghan and Harry’s pure joy at becoming first-time parents? We go behind the scenes of Master Archie’s first week. Meanwhile, over in New York they celebrated the news at the Met Gala, aka the ‘fashion Oscars’, where the camp monitor was in full swing on the red carpet and our special guest was bracing herself for her ‘best Met ever’. Be prepared for some serious backstage insight! @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

over to you...

NICE WORK… It was very interesting to learn about the social media trend of posting ‘five jobs I’ve had’ (Grazia View, 6 May). My entry would be: sex and relationship counsellor; social worker; crime prevention officer; family support worker; adult debt and housing adviser. And then I realised that, oh no, silly me, that’s just one job... what we call a teacher in the 21st century! Being so skilled and multi-able, you’d think we were all rewarded with six-figure salaries, but that would most likely be the people who you mentioned tweeting such lists. Lisa Smith SAME DIFFERENCE I loved your chat with Queenie novelist Candice Carty-Williams (I loved Bridget Jones, but I wanted to see myself in a book, 6 May), but reading that ‘there’s a feeling among publishers that if there’s…

we wear it well

I enjoyed Style doesn’t have a sell-by date (13 May). When I was growing up, there were lots of trends that every girl had to have. For me it was hot pants, for others it was ponchos. These days, the item could be jeans. But should I really wear jeans after 52? Well, I do and my mother’s 89 and she can rock a pair of jeans. It’s great to dress in contemporary styles. We should embrace the time we live in. So in conclusion, Helena shouldn’t be age-shamed – nor should any other woman. As Helena so rightly points out – what a woman wears is her choice, her business and nobody else’s. Geri Burton…

A record number of single women are starting families on their own with the help of IVF, it emerged last week. In fact, the number has almost quadrupled in a decade, with some blaming the struggle to find ‘Mr Right’. But those reports (and the suggestion that women are just too picky) obscured a bigger story: record numbers of same-sex couples and those using surrogates are also becoming parents via IVF, which was initially aimed at heterosexual couples. Increasingly, the world is realising that families can come in all shapes and sizes. And if more people are able to have the children they so desperately want, surely that is something to celebrate.…

why are the gender wars fought on women’s turf?

YOU COULD LEARN a lot from Caster Semenya, the Olympic runner whose career, body and identity has been subject to humiliating scrutiny recently. Two weeks ago, Semenya – who is hyperandrogenic: she produces higher levels of testosterone than most women – lost a challenge she brought against the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF), which had determined that women with naturally elevated levels of testosterone must take drugs to limit it. Semenya, who is not prepared to take those drugs, responded with extraordinary grace when the Court of Arbitration of Sport rejected her case, effectively decreeing her Not Female Enough. She won the Doha 800m race just 48 hours later, saying simply, ‘No human can stop me from running.’ That we could all respond with such powerful dignity to such…
