Katherine Rake - The Fawcett Years 28th July 2009
Katherine Rake
The Fawcett years

Dr Katherine Rake has led The Fawcett Society, the UK's leading campaigning organisation for women's rights, for seven years. During her time as director, she has been relentless and resourceful in campaigning for equal pay, fair political representation and better treatment within the justice system. She also fought to put an end to sexism in the city, pregnancy discrimination and the prejudices faced by women from ethnic minorities. Before she takes up her next role as head of the Family and Parenting Institute, she joins Jenni to talk about her battles and successes and why she thinks feminism now has a public face.
