Winning Women's Votes 15 Jan 2010
Silhouette of family
White working-class families: why have they lost so much respect?

As part of the Winning Women’s Votes series, we end this week’s theme of Fixing the Family with a specific focus on the white working class family. From salt of the earth to ‘chavs’, why has the white working class lost society’s respect in recent times? To discuss, social anthropologist Gillian Evans and community film maker Terry Egan join Jenni in the Manchester studio.
