There’s just a week left to buy our December Feminism Issue, and the response has been overwhelming. Here are some of our best bits. Let us know yours – tweet us @ELLEUK. Still need to get your copy? Buy it now.
The #ELLEInspire 100 list features empowering women from ELLE cover star Emma Watson and campaigner Jinan Younis, to fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg and journalist Laurie Penny. Read their inspirational quotes here.

And it even sparked debate on the BBC Radio 4 – listen here.
Our feminism survey results worryingly revealed that just 9% of women feel that they are ambitious, and just 21% feel confident. We wanted to tackle this, so our January 2015 issue is the Confidence Issue – pre-order it now.
