Across London, female-focused networks are transforming women’s professional lives. This week, we go inside Women Who, a network for women working in the creative industry. We explore Hollywood’s obsession with its own failures, and an equally intense infatuation with Brooklyn’s hottest ramen. From there, we reenact a decades-old fashion rivalry, examine the origins of Japan’s biggest water fight, and visit an athlete in New York who found rehabilitation in wheelchair basketball.
