Made In Dagenham stage star Gemma Arterton said “any man worth their soul” should be supporting an equal pay campaign outside Parliament. Former Bond girl Arterton is starring in the West End musical adaptation of the story of the female workers at Ford’s Dagenham plant who went on strike over equal pay in 1968.

Gemma Arterton marches on parliament to demand equal pay for women. She joined with veterans of Dagenham’s equal pay protests today to demand MPs tackle the gap between men and women’s salaries.

Thousands of children are needlessly dying because they are too ashamed to talk about HIV and seek support. That’s why on World AIDS Day, Sentebale launched the #FeelNoShame campaign, which celebrates the sharing of secrets – spreading the word that eradicating stigma and shame, saves lives.

Sentebale is a charity co-founded by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho – a Southern African country bordered within South Africa. Lesotho has the third highest HIV/AIDs prevalence in the world, after Swaziland and Botswana. One tragic issue perpetuating the AIDS pandemic and causing needless deaths is the shame and stigma affecting HIV positive children. Many of them are isolated, under-informed and frightened to speak up about their health problems, receiving little support in their homes and communities to help them deal with the medical, social and psychological challenges they face.
