Episode 1

Last year, comedian Bridget Christie noticed that misogyny, like shiny leggings, had made an unexpected comeback. But did it ever really go away? Bridget Christie Minds the Gap is a new four-part stand up comedy series on the state of British feminism today.

An incident involving a man, a smell and a well-known bookstore made her ask what place feminism has in modern Britain, whether the fight has been won or is being fought on different fronts. Plus, why did Bic launch the "Bic for Her" - a pen specifically designed for a woman's hand?

In episode one she asks why feminism became a dirty word and whether the modern British woman needs it. From a smell in a well known bookshop to a pen designed specially for women, she looks at some of the more ridiculous things associated with being a woman.

Fred MacAulay helps her remember some of the key incidents which brought her to an epiphany and a call to arms.

Producer; Alison Vernon-Smith.
