Co-founded by luvvie-extraordinaire Sandi Toksvig, the group works towards the laudable, if somewhat woolly, aim of making “equality a reality”. But their brand of insipid dinner party feminism is sinking into irrelevance; washed away by a wave of grassroots women’s rights activists who are tired of playing nice.
Telegraph View | There is no easy route to peace in Ukraine Just as the Ukrainian winter bites, could diplomatic channels between Russia and the West begin to thaw? That certainly appears to be the hope of Olaf Scholz, the German chancellor, who spent an hour on the phone with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, on Friday.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world.
We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
