Feminine Mystiques Episode 3 of 3

By Sarah Hall
Read by Francesca Dymond

Fifty years since the first publication of Betty Friedan's seminal feminist work The Feminine Mystique, three leading writers celebrate her influence in new short stories for Radio 4 exploring the contemporary feminist landscape.

In our final story in the series, Sarah Hall's compelling story takes us to a dystopian near future in the tradition of Margaret Atwood. In a world almost - but not quite - recognisable to us, a young woman finds herself in a terrifying situation, and a young doctor confronts a new political world order that challenges her professional faith.

Sarah Hall has been chosen as one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists 2013, and is author of The Carhullan Army and The Electric Michelangelo.

Producer: Allegra McIlroy.
