  • Beauty and the beastly panellist (Spilt Milk) “This is what we’re up against: popular and successful commentators who say that women size 18 and above are ‘extremely extremely large large women’. Who complain that just seeing fat women dress up and walk up and down a catwalk, in a culture where most regular catwalk models are underweight (perhaps dangerously so), is ‘sending out bad health messages’.

    At Planning the Day:
    We celebrated ten years of work in Battambang.

    I reflected on the ethics and relational components of having money stolen from my room, by a staff member desperate to pay her mother’s medical fees and avoid jail because of her debt.

    One of our trainers is crossing the border into Thailand to look for work, because her family has become so desperate.

    I pondered the luxury of a day off.
