Badass Women's Hour: Feminism, female entrepreneurs and hate crime

Badass Women

Friday, October 19, 2018

Among the topics up for discussion on Badass Women's Hour this week, are feminism, female entrepreneurs and hate crime.

Joining the Badass Women for a discussion on feminism is former Big Brother contestant, Andy West, who recently hit out at the #MeToo movement.

Mr West, who appeared on Big Brother in 2016, claimed "feminist idiots" interpret "every tiny thing" men do as an act of aggression during an interview on ITV's Good Morning Britain show.

The show hosts will be grilling West on his comments, and questioning what he thinks needs to be done.

John Mays who is the chair of equal rights organisation, Parity, will join the Badass Women to discuss hate crime.

Home secretary Sajid Javid has called for a review of current hate crime legislation, which could lead to offences sparked by ageism, misogyny and misandry being classed as a hate crime.

The Badass Women will be asking Mr Mays about what he considers a hate crime, and whether gender should matter if a crime has been committed.

Entrepreneur Natasha Stromberg will also be making an appearance this week to talk about her new app Genderbuzz, which gives women a platform to advertise their businesses.

The businesswoman will be talking about why she thinks women are still not equal to men in the business world, and how she thinks her app can make a difference.

Also appearing on the show will be Cosmopolitan editor Farrah Storr, author Caroline Millington and the stars of new play Victoria's Knickers, Alice Vilanculo and Osekloa Obi.


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