Whether at work or with family, sexual harassment can be a serious pain and source of stress. If you find yourself in such a situation, let’s help you break free with this simple step-by-step guide:
Start with your why
It’s important to understand why sexual harassment is wrong in the first place before you even take action. It’s what will keep you motivated in the long run if challenges come, the knowledge that you’re a woman worthy of respect. Simply put, you deserve better. You shouldn’t have to put up with long-term discomfort in your life and suffer in silence.

Mothering Sunday is really close, ladies! And to make your gift hunt 10x easier, we’ve compiled a list of beauty gift ideas we’re sure your mum will love. Whatever you choose, just make sure she feels special. It’s her day, after all, so do not settle!
