What does feminism mean to you? Phone-in

58 minutes
First broadcast:
Monday 04 March 2013

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.

Just before Woman's Hour on the 4th March on BBC Radio 4's Start the Week, Anne McElvoy will be discussing feminism with Natasha Walter, the Living Dolls author; 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.
