The Guardian view on language: the flesh made word | Editorial 15 Mar 2:25pm The Guardian view on language: the flesh made word | Editorial
Teeth and tongues make the sounds of our speech, but our humanity makes its meaningsBabies have an astonishing talent that adults entirely lose. By the age of one, they can recognise the significant noises in the babble around them and group them into a language. When we have lost this capacity as adults, it becomes enormously difficult to distinguish between

Brexit – the niche production that truly brought the house down | Marina Hyde 15 Mar 1:05pm Brexit – the niche production that truly brought the house down | Marina Hyde
From Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay to the Territorial Army’s Mark Francois, bad actors are destroying the UK franchise We focus so much on what divides parliament’s warring Brexit factions, when almost all of them are united by the guiding principle of brinkmanship: “Eventually someone will stop acting like a shit, but it certainly won’t be me.” The past few days have been like watching the Cuban missile crisis re-enacted by the Teletubbies.

After Christchurch, Muslims need more than just your thoughts and prayers | Masuma Rahim 15 Mar 9:21am After Christchurch, Muslims need more than just your thoughts and prayers | Masuma Rahim
Atrocities such as this will happen again and again until the media and politicians end their obsession with the far right There is a certain profundity about waking up one morning, when your only plans for the day are to go to Friday prayers with your family, to discover that on the other side of the world people just like you, doing exactly the same thing with their Friday as you intend to do with yours, have been slaughtered. My first response upon reading of the

As students, we helped defeat apartheid. The climate strikers can win their fight too | Kumi Naidoo 15 Mar 6:00am As students, we helped defeat apartheid. The climate strikers can win their fight too | Kumi Naidoo
Young people demanding action on climate change are building a mass movement like we South Africans did to end injusticeIn 1980, at the age of 15, I led a student protest that got me expelled. Every day that I went to Durban city centre, I could see that the schools for white children were different to mine. Even though adults told us that we could not make a difference, once our eyes were opened to this injustice, there was no alternative. My friends and I were determined to make a stand against the glaring inequality in South Africa. Those who lived under apartheid know exactly what it means to live with an inherent threat to your existence. But rather than give in to the fear that it was too big to take on, we had no choice but to trust in the power of our individual actions. There are many lessons here for the climate change movement.

Why so few women in the boardroom? Because men won’t listen to them | Christina Patterson 15 Mar 4:59am Why so few women in the boardroom? Because men won’t listen to them | Christina Patterson
Here’s a deal – we’ll stop the fuss about gender if the other half will just occasionally shut upWasn’t it great? All those lunches! All those parties! All those speeches, saying how great we are and how far we’ve come! Perhaps it was for you. I spent International Women’s Day in the way I spend most days: sitting at home, in front of my computer, looking forward to the odd trip to the kettle. I saw the tweets, and read the articles, but it all felt a bit like bring-your-daughter-to-work day. It felt like

As a leader in the aid sector I accept it has perpetuated problematic myths. Celebrity hugs won’t solve global inequality Tonight will see Comic Relief raise millions, which will go towards poverty alleviation around the world. As the chief executive of Christian Aid, there aren’t many people more in favour of helping the world’s most marginalised groups than me. But as a black African woman, I regularly have to face up to the challenges highlighted in the recent exchange between
