Fancy a bit of glamour this weekend? 

Grab the girls and join the Film Fatale crew in paying homage to 1950s for what promises to be Ireland's most glamorous film night.

Film Fatale Vintage Cinema returns to Dublin's Sugar Club, Saturday, July 22, with a screening of the superb All About Eve.

Joseph L Mankiewicz’s Oscar-winning drama has been hailed as one of the greatest films about Hollywood, women, acting, ageing and good old-fashioned rivalry – and now's your chance to see it all played out on the big screen.

In what is arguably one of Bette Davis' finest performances, we see her take on the role of Margo Channing – a hard-edge Broadway star whose personality and experience goes up against the wiles of a younger actress.

From Joan Rivers and Dawn French to Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman, women have been knocking it out of the park on the comedy scene for years.

And while there still exists a less than subtle suggestion that men have the market cornered when it comes to the laughs, the Funny Woman Awards have done so much to turn that notion on its head.

Promoting and championing female comics for more than ten years, the Funny Woman Awards are holding their latest event in The Sugar Club next week, and we are PUMPED!

Taking place on Tuesday July 26th, the good folk behind these awards will be hosting some incredible new acts –  all of whom will be competing for a place in the final.

And with tickets coming in at just €10, we know where we'll be next Tuesday!


In today's Ireland, dating abuse is something that's known but rarely discussed – a silence we at SHEmazing! want to shatter.

Carrying out a survey on the topic with over 1,000 Irish women threw up some very frightening results, and yet they may not come as a shock to many given that 55% of those surveyed said they know someone in their inner circle of friends that has been abused in a relationship – and we are just stunned that this isn't talked about more.

The most common form of abuse experienced by 18-35 year-olds, is emotional and psychological, taking the top spot at 89%.

Following that is verbal abuse (67%), physical abuse (50%), cyber (24%), and then stalking (15%).

However, this is not being discussed at a national level, which means there is little to no legislation to protect the victims. 

With dating abuse, the victim doesn't live with their partner which means they're not entitled to protection under the current domestic violence legislation in Ireland.

And further, with incidents of stalking – online or otherwise – cases are increasingly difficult to prove under the definition of harassment in Section 10 of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act 1997.

We want Irish women to come together with us to implore the new Government to re-examine this issue and provide the young women of Ireland with legal protection and the services of support that they deserve.

Our editor, Gillian Fitzpatrick, said of the issues at hand: “Dating abuse is not being talked about therefore it is not being recognised by young women in relationships as unacceptable behaviour."

"Not only do incidents of dating abuse affect the mental health and future relationships of young women but in extreme cases it can lead to accidental or intentional death through physical abuse and suicide for those who see no way out."

"To fully protect young women from dating abuse, we are urging the new Government to recognise that dating abuse is on the increase and current legislation for domestic abuse needs to be extended to make safety orders available to these victims."

"We need to extend protection to younger women in dating relationships that are not covered by domestic violence legislation just because they have never lived with their boyfriend.”

Women who are victims of dating abuse have admitted that they have suffered from a number of long-term side effects including, anger, lowered self-esteem, depression, shame and guilt.

And further, 93% of victims have admitted that they turn to various forms of self-harm to escape their reality – practices which include, overeating (65%), alcohol (45%), cigarettes (31%) and illegal drugs (6%).

To raise awareness of the issue of dating abuse and to raise funds for Women's Aid, we have decided to host a music gig in The Sugar Club on Wednesday July 6, where Róisín O will headline, and more special guests to be announced.

Tickets go on sale TODAY, with the earlybird special price of €19. If you'd like to support us on the night, you can get your tickets here.



Irish folk are famed for a great many great things – although whether dancing is one of them is somewhat questionable.

A wedding, on a night out, or attending a festival; the moves on offer on homesoil are less Rio Carnival, and more Roscrea carousal.

Not that we mind – because unchoreographed craic is part of what makes the country great.

However, just every so often, it’s nice to turn our hands to something a little different – namely a spot of Brazilian-inspired samba.

Last month, talented Irish-Brazilian bossa band Nova Collective hit Dun Laoghaire pier to record a video for their new single, Samba De Amor. And with the help of director Tom Speers they managed to rope in some unsuspecting locals too.

"Our concept with this one was very simple: can Irish people dance like a Brazilian?" the band said afterwards. 

Well, suffice to say we're totally in love with the results.

For those not yet in the know, Nova Collective is led by outstanding pianist Louis Ryan, and boasts a lineup of exceptional jazz, traditional Irish, classical and Latin musicians. 

Their live shows often involve more than music (spectators are always in for a treat) and they're poised to play the Sugar Club on Sunday, August 16.
