Badass Women's Hour: Doctor Who, radical feminism and the #HimToo hashtag

Badass Women

Friday, October 12, 2018

This week, the Badass Women are talking about Doctor Who, radical feminism and the #HimToo hashtag.

Up for discussion is a Barbie-doll version of Jodie Whittaker's Doctor Who, which hit the shelves recently and drew criticism for being "overly feminine".

Also being debated is the #HimToo hashtag, which began after a mother posted a picture of her 32-year-old son online, claiming he was scared to date since the #MeToo movement began.

The post went viral, and the son in question - who is a Navy veteran - said it was a "misguided" attempt by his "wacky" mother to get him a date.

Joining the Badass Women on Saturday night will be Love Islander Alex Miller, who has just launched a new DIY venture.

Miller, a former window fitter who appeared on the ITV show earlier this year, is set to talk about his new project the Naked Handyman, in which he'll be offering women decorating and DIY hacks.

Also appearing on the show is editor of Women's Health magazine, Claire Sanderson, who is talking all about mental health.

The editor has been open about her struggles with depression, and has dedicated the November issue of Women's Health to raising awareness of mental health, featuring interviews with women who have suffered themselves.

Join the Badass Women every Saturday from 7pm-10pm on talkRADIO.
