Wake up, Boots. You can’t judge women who need the morning-after pill | Sian Norris

The chief pharmacist’s comments in defence of a refusal to lower the drug’s price has caused a backlash in the feminist community. Hardly surprising, really• Sian Norris is a writer and feminist activistYesterday Marc Donovan, the chief pharmacist at Boots, defended the chain’s decision to maintain a high price (£28.25) for women wanting to buy the emergency contraceptive, or morning-after pill. He told the British Pregnancy Advisory Service: “We would not want to be accused of incentivising inappropriate use, and provoking complaints, by significantly reducing the price of this product.” Rivals Superdrug and Tesco had cut the price of the drug to about £13.50 following complaints that it was artificially high; in France, it costs £5.50. The comments caused a backlash in the feminist and sexual health community, which argued that Boots’s decision not only creates a tiered system where the wealthier can access contraception, but it also positions women’s sexual health as a “moral” issue, and suggests that women are not capable of making sensible and informed choices about their contraceptive options.

Diversity is not important to the white men in power

The BBC pay gap and comments by the frontrunner to head the CBI suggest male leaders are out to protect their interestsThe realist in me says that diversity is not important to the men at the top of the food chain. It is ingrained in them to maintain their position and protect their interests.Sure, you hear the odd few say “but I want my daughter to have opportunities” and “it’s important to represent our customers” but these are merely pleasantries. As a species, the white educated man is out to survive and survival relies on staying on top. Continue reading...

High-fat oil and low-paid farmers: the cost of our coconut craze

The health implications of coconut oil have been much discussed – but supermarket shelves still groan with countless coconut products. Meanwhile, many growers earn less than $1 a day. Should we turn our back on this runaway trend?Canary Wharf in London on a Thursday lunchtime, and platoons of well-groomed office workers descend into a warren of underground malls in search of lunch: something healthy, natural and delicious – a little edible holiday from urban desk life. All the big chains are here to tempt the 100,000 ravenous workers, who needn’t step outside all day: from Eat, Leon and Pret a Manger to Wagamama, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. The longest queue is in the vast Waitrose, snaking past fridge after fridge of hermetically sealed, ready-to-eat food.Step a little closer and look at that food, and a trend quickly emerges: at Pret a Manger, you can wash your avocado wrap down with “naturally rehydrating” coconut water, then grab a pot of dairy-free coconut yoghurt with mango for afters. You might have already had the coconut porridge for breakfast, and if that wasn’t coconutty enough for you, the top four items on the “Barista Specials” board are – drum roll – coconut-milk coffees. At Eat, it’s a mango-and-coconut-milk chia pot; at the Virgin Active cafe, a coconut granola with “pina colada” topping. Waitrose has more than 145 coconut-containing products (although, yes, that does include some toiletries), Morrisons sells 213 and Tesco no fewer than 394. Continue reading...
