‘None of the evidence was enough’: Czech women fight to criminalise non-consensual sex

“I felt so lost when I heard the court verdict; as if the fact that he raped me was somehow not enough,” said Jana Novak. Novak, from Prague, pressed charges against her attacker in 2019 and endured an 18-month-long court case. “I had all the evidence, the creepy messages, the medical notes,” said Novak, whose name has been changed to protect her identity. “But none of it was enough.”

Pipeline tells Black Memphis landowners: sell us the rights to your land or get sued

The only things Karmen Johnson-Tutwiler has left to remind her of her mother are a few photographs and just under a quarter acre of land covered in bramble and wildflowers that backs up to a railroad track. When her mother, Sharon Watson, died in 2010, she and her sister inherited it. “She always told me it was important to have a piece of property as your own,” Johnson-Tutwiler said.

The taste of sunny days: what makes cider the drink of British summer?

As the weather turns balmy and folk meander to open spaces for some much-needed vitamin D, my mind leaves the warming hum of a smoky whisky behind and craves something cold and dripping with condensation. Every summer, I start drinking cider – and I’m not alone. What is it about the zingy, apple-based drink that sends the saliva glands into overdrive as soon as the sun comes out?

A hardworking hero with a sense of humor

When Nathan Kyle Coleman picked a puppy from a litter of six, he chose the biggest – a soon-to-be-huge caramel lab for a man 6ft 3in. He and his wife, Edna, named him Bob. Whenever the weather was changing, Coleman posted a photo of the dog on Facebook with a caption, for instance, “Bob says: we’re going to have rain.” “The man had a sense of humor,” Edna said.

Matt Hancock announces shake-up giving ministers more power over NHS

Matt Hancock has formally unveiled plans for a significant reorganisation of the health service that he said would bring better integration and accountability and less bureaucracy, but which will also concentrate power over the NHS with ministers. Saying the coronavirus crisis had emphasised the need for both a more holistic approach to population-wide health, and better integration with care services, the health secretary portrayed the plans for NHS England as implementing the desires of NHS s

Brazilian butt lift: behind the world's most dangerous cosmetic surgery

The quest was simple: Melissa wanted the perfect bottom. In her mind, it resembled a plump, ripe peach, like the emoji. She was already halfway there. In 2018, she’d had a Brazilian butt lift, known as a BBL, a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from various parts of the body and then injected back into the buttocks. Melissa’s bottom was already rounder and fuller than before, and she was delighted by the effect, with how it made her feel and how it made her look. But it could be better. It could always be better.

Polish women travel abroad for abortions ahead of law change

Polish women are increasingly being forced to travel abroad to seek abortions even though a court ruling to tighten the country’s already strict laws has not yet coming into force, activists have said. The constitutional court ruled in October that abortion was illegal even in cases where there were severe foetal abnormalities. Around 1,000 abortions a year – almost all of the country’s legal abortion procedures – are carried out for this reason.

When to unfriend: ‘I just got so sick of seeing these stupid opinions on my feeds’

When Melbourne re-entered stage 3 lockdown, I posted a “Bunnings Karens” status and the consequent 81 comment argument saw me Marie Kondo my friends list to only those who spark joy. I went from 2,600+ to 997. The unique bubble of Covid-19 isolation and anxiety led to me pulling the trigger on culling my personal and professional network down to a closer circle.
