Hiding in Plain Sight: The life and crimes of Dr John Davies

This is the story of suspected baby trafficker, pimp, kidnapper, and major charity fraudster John Davies.
It is also the story of a world renowned academic, missionary, gold-hearted philanthropist, and expert in combatting trafficking in women and children.
Which of these two descriptions is true?
After an investigation lasting almost 20 years, Julie Bindel knows the answer. But will you believe her? Or might you prefer the version peddled by Davies and his supporters since the rumours began to circle back in the 1980s?

The Guardian: Videos

Is not having children selfish? Far from it

The idea that all women want to be mothers is outdated and sexist, argues Julie Bindel. She says people who choose not to become parents are often seen as selfish, but that parents who give up on trying to change the world in order to have children and then only think about their own family receive no judgment

Women, face it: marriage can never be feminist

The institution of marriage has curtailed women’s freedom for centuries, says Julie Bindel. So why are so many feminists trying to reclaim the tradition as a subversive act? If you want to get married, she says, just get on with it - but please don’t pretend that being a feminist changes its meaning

Sorry, we can't ban everything that offends you

We are in danger of making censorship the standard response to anything that offends, argues Julie Bindel. Recent attempts to ban Donald Trump and pick-up artist Roosh V from the UK would have achieved nothing politically constructive, she says. Movements like civil rights and feminism made progress because they were able to hold people to account

I'm a lesbian, but I wasn't born this way

None of the science dedicated to finding a gay gene holds water, so why not make a positive choice to reject heterosexuality and decide to switch sides? Julie Bindel explains why she believes she chose her sexuality, rather than it having chosen her. But, she asks, have we returned to the essentialist notion that we are either 'born that way' or that we are unthinkingly heterosexual?
