Women’s organisations get their say at Leveson
Posted on January 24, 2012
For those of you who missed it here’s the link to this morning’s Leveson Inquiry hearing where representatives from women’s organisations finally got their say on sexism in the media. The relevant bit starts at around 105:00, and it’s well worth watching: Leveson Inquiry Tuesday am
And here’s my Storify of some of the tweeting that went on during it: Women at Leveson
In other news, I did the interview about lap dancing clubs on BBC Radio Norfolk’s breakfast show that I mentioned in my previous post – you can listen to the full thing here. And yes I know, I said Camden when I should have said Hackney, but never mind.
Anyway, here’s the money quote from that interview: I’m still ridiculously chuffed that I managed to get that line in. Hey Norfolk, have some radical feminist theory with your cornflakes…….
Thanks for that quote Cath. I am still in shock at Louise Mensch’s claim that the Tories are feminist because women, who make up the majority of lower paid public sector workers, haven’t had their pay frozen – because they have low pay.
