Beautiful women who make you feel good

TweetOne of the people that I met on the #ONEMums trip to Ethiopia was the amazing Karen, who blogs at Chookooloonks. The site is hard to spell but beautiful to see. Karen had been on a previous #ONEMums trip and was the official photographer for our trip, so when we wanted to put down the camera or the phone and just concentrate on the stories of the people we were meeting, we could. Karen’s involved in...

The noted professor of Science and Society at Imperial College London has spent a lesson – soon to be broadcast on Channel 4 – having troubled teen boys look at swimming sperm under a microscope. “When pictures of the rapidly...

Jenography featured in SHE magazine

TweetWhat do Cindy Crawford and I have in common? I know a thousand examples rush to mind, but really the most important right now is that we are both featured in the October 2010 issue of SHE magazine. Cindy is hogging the cover (yes, yes, Cindy, we get it, you’re still hot) while I’m lounging in a much more reserved position of p69 (please, no jokes – it is just too easy). The article is about...

Thrill! I was on Woman's Hour

TweetIt has been a dream of mine ever since I landed on these shores to be a Woman’s Hour guest – one of those women talking in authoritative tones about high-minded topics. Well, I don’t know about the authoritative tone but this morning I did have the opportunity to talk about CyberMummy and the phenomenon of mum blogging. I was in the studio –┬álots of winding passages, door upon...
