The Cow and Co Café

(image from here) The Cow and Co Café is a short walk away from John Lewis, although when you are there, it feels as if it could as well be in the country side. The café is relaxing and quiet, if you need an escape from the busy student life, it is ideal. Cow and Co is best described as eclectic. In terms of its decoration, the place is very similar to Urban Outfitters home wear with that lovely cosy feel. There are daffodils on each table, a range of artsy magazines if you want something to read and, of course, great food...

Review: Some people V. Reginald D. Hunter

Last Thursday, Reginald D. Hunter delivered a preview of his new tour: ‘Some People V. Reginald D. Hunter’, at the Epstein Theatre. As anticipated, it was a controversial and hilariously funny performance. Typical to his previous acts, the comedian spoke about race, politics and society – although he also presented some new material on lighter matters. Hunter commented on his experiences of British culture from an American’s perspective, such as our much-loved ‘pre-drinks’. He stated that ‘the British drink like the Americans eat’ – we drink before going out to drink more, the American’s cook up a steak before going...

‘He for She’ is Three

Although it may be difficult to believe, Emma Watson’s He for She speech will be three years old this year. It is appropriate to say that the speech had a significant impact on many people, making us all re-evaluate what it means to be a man or woman in the modern day. We were encouraged to think about what it means to be a feminist regardless of whether or not it is a title that we identify as personally. Emma Watson made an incredible speech; arguably one of the most influential ones of our generation and three years after its...
