Cameron Russell Calls out Photographers Who Sexually Assault Fashion Models (The Telegraph)
"She has been re-posting stories on her Instagram from fashion models who say they have suffered sexual abuse at the hands of photographers and casting directors. Russell describes seeing women from the film industry speaking out against Harvey Weinstein as a motivation for publishing the pieces."

The Fashion World Speaks Out: 'Without Immigration, We'd Be Selling Potato Sacks' (The Guardian)
"Jigsaw filled billboards with posters emblazoned with "♥ immigration", to counter hostility towards immigrants since the Brexit vote. The London mayor, Sadiq Khan, was among the thousands who took to social media to applaud the campaign. Another wave of xenophobia swept the world after the US election."
