Women

You may not immediately identify women as a problem but, when 'normal' has meant 'male' for centuries how does that affect our perception of women from the past and in the present?

This week's Big Problem with Helen Keen is; Women

You may not immediately identify women as a problem but, when 'normal' has meant 'male' for centuries how does that affect our perception of women from the past and how does it affect women in the present.

As humanity faces a very big raft of very varied problems, many of them of its own making, here is a series of optimistic, scientifically literate yet comically nimble shows that offer a sweeping overview of the biggest challenges we face and the science behind them. We look at the often surprising solutions of past generations and the likely and unlikely solutions of the future and present a scrupulously researched comedy celebrating human ingenuity.

Written by Helen Keen, Jenny Laville, Lloyd Langford and Carrie Quinlan and special thanks to Marc Abrahams and Dr Stuart Richie.
