Misogyny, like shiny leggings, has made an unexpected comeback. But did it ever really go away? With Fred McAulay. From March 2013.
After noticing that misogyny, like shiny leggings, had made an unexpected comeback - comedian Bridget Christie wonders did it ever really go away?
In the first of her four-part stand-up comedy series on the state of British feminism today, Bridget asks why feminism became a dirty word and whether the modern British woman needs it.
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?
Fred MacAulay helps her remember some of the key incidents which brought her to an epiphany and a call to arms.
