Clare Harrison has myriad memories of her childhood bedroom in Harlow, Essex. Growing up in her parents’ three-bed semi in the late Seventies, she recalls how she would throw imaginary tea parties for her dolls. Years later, as a pop-loving teenager, she plastered the flowery wallpaper with posters of her heartthrobs and secretly practised kissing on the window pane which overlooked the garden. Many a grown woman will have experienced similar waves of nostalgia after spending the occasional night in her old room. But for Clare, a 40-year-old office administrator, these memories are bittersweet. Because there’s nothing ‘occasional’ about her nights back home. Clare Harrison has been living with her retired parents Paul, 65, and Theresa, 62, since 2007 and says she has wept with despair that she is stuck in her situation 'I’m crammed into my childhood bedroom which has hardly changed since I first left it 20 years ago' says Clare, from Harlow, Essex … [Read more...] about The mid-life shame of moving back in with mum and dad: How failed relationships are forcing more and more middle aged women back into their childhood bedrooms

When Geena Davis’s daughter was 2, she did what most mothers do: she started to show her children’s movies and TV shows. What she never expected was to be horrified. Watching these movies alongside young Alizeh, she noticed that there were far more male characters than female characters, by an obscene number. It was so obvious, she thought, that surely others have noticed, too. “In the 21st century, it was completely crazy to me that we would be teaching kids to have gender bias from minute one,” she says. “When we should be showing them boys and girls equally because the world is very diverse.” But everyone she went to said it wasn’t true. It couldn’t be—at least not anymore. She appealed directly to the creators of kids entertainment, the people responsible for creating these stories, and they also denied it. “I couldn’t believe it,” she says. “How is this possible they don’t see what … [Read more...] about Geena Davis Changed Hollywood.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actress and producer Viola Davis gave a rousing speech about leadership and authenticity to a well-heeled crowd of Hollywood power players Wednesday morning at The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast. Davis, who was being honored with the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award, said that she doesn’t always come to mind when she thinks of the idea of leadership — Martin Luther King, Jr. does — but that she is trying through her production company to embrace women of color as they really are. “There is no limit to how we see narratives with people of color,” Davis said to a rapt crowd that included Mandy Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Awkwafina, Rita Wilson, “Roma” breakout Yalitza Aparicio and Kesha. “There is only so much I am going to cow tow to this business.” She said she and her husband Julius Tennon started JuVee Productions because she was tired of celebrating movies that didn’t … [Read more...] about Viola Davis says ‘stop taming us’ at Hollywood event
