Many know of the name Mary Quant, but do the masses know of her legacy? This new documentary from Sadie Frost get those unbeknown up to speed, as it step by step tells the story of one of Britain's most revolutionary fashion designers. I knew of her as the inventor of the mini skirt, but this film made me realise how global and long standing her empire was. Whether your a fashion history buff or just want to learn something new, Quant will be entertaining and informative for anyone.

Quant is in cinemas now.

You know when a song comes on and you remember exactly at what point in your life you were listening to it? Or how you felt when you heard it, who you shared it with... the BBC Soul Music podcast is a chronicle of those stories. Each episode delves into the history of a famous track with the help of a music industry insider, and two or three people relay how that song affected them; at times it's uplifting and other times it's bittersweet. But I love that there's nothing complicated about the podcast – just regular people sharing profound stories around songs that have impacted their lives in some way.

When I first read Emrata's essay Buying Myself Back in The Cut last year, I remember closing the website tab with mixed feelings – and that's exactly the point. When I picked up her new book My Body what instantly stood out was the refreshing honesty. She neither preaches a solution nor denies the inherent hypocrisy in many of her statements. The book is a collection of essays she has written about her own experiences as a commodity of the male gaze – sometimes to her benefit, other times her detriment. Reading the book, it is easy to point out flaws in her thinking: to criticise for a very singular point of view or the fact that she hasn't changed much the way she presents herself since. However, regardless of any opinion of the book or Emily herself for that matter, its obvious hypocrisy struck a chord. Ultimately there is no easy answer. Coming to terms with the experience as a woman in relation to sexuality, money and power is messy and admitting that is a necessary first step to having this conversation.
