It pains me as a journalist to admit this, but let’s face it: the media isn’t always very kind to women. Whether it’s the recent victory by Rebel Wilson in a defamation case against a magazine publisher over a series of negative articles, or Karl Stefanovic’s withering description of a tabloid website for its “despicable track record of denigrating women for who they are”, you don’t have to look too far to find an unflattering depiction of female public figures. Here at Stellar, we have always taken pride in celebrating women from all walks of life, and the feedback we have received from you has confirmed there is far more interest in sharing fascinating stories and championing success and triumph over adversity than there is in tearing one another apart. This week’s diverse group of subjects – including TV presenter Rebecca Maddern, commentator Jamila Rizvi, businesswoman Jane Lauder, actor Lily James, musician ClareC Bowen and writer Brodie LancasterL – is testament to that. AndA no, Shane Jacobson, I haven’t forgotten you – there’s always plenty of room for a few good men in Stellar too.
