What does feminism mean to you? A badge of honour? A fundamental part of how you view the world? An unnecessary label? An idea which has had its time? An unhelpful ideology which has done more harm than good? How would you describe yourself? Are you a radical feminist? A feminist? 'Not a feminist but...'? Pro equality but anti feminist? Why? How do you think feminism has directly affected your life? Phone Jane Garvey with your views and experiences. Phone lines open at 0800 on Monday March 4th on 03700 100444, email now via our Contact Us link or tweet @bbcwomanshour #feminism.

Join the Feminism Debate

Is feminism a fundamental part of how you view the world? An idea that has run its time?

 

Start the Week: Feminism

On Start the Week Anne McElvoy explores the state of feminism today.

 

It's fifty years since Betty Friedan's landmark book, The Feminine Mystique, questioned the role of women in society. Anne McElvoy's discusses that role today with the Living Dolls author, Natasha Walter, the proponent of erotic capital Catherine Hakim, the radical feminist Finn Mackay and the journalist and academic Shereen El Feki who has been looking at the changing sexual attitudes and behaviour in the Arab world.
