Event description
Emma Barnett, Woman’s Hour presenter, comes back to 5x15 for an unmissable conversation with interviewer Rosie Boycott

About this event

Hear Emma Barnett and Rosie Boycott discuss feminism, politics, the power of taboos and Emma's fierce and funny rallying cry for women and men: Period: It’s About Bloody Time.

After unknowingly becoming the first person in the UK to announce she was menstruating on live TV news, periods have literally followed Emma around – with women coming up to her on the street sharing their stories. Emma has now written a bold, witty and touching manifesto to finally remove the bizarre stigma surrounding the process to which we all owe our lives.

Why do so many taboos around women’s bodies persist in the 21st century? How can we clear away the stigma that surrounds women's health? And as she has confronted bodily taboos and busted myths - what has Emma learned about feminism, power and modern society?

Emma Barnett is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist. By day, she is the presenter of Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4. By night, she presents the BBC's flagship current affairs programme, Newsnight on BBC Two. Emma interviews in the key figures shaping our times, from the Prime Minister to those who would very much like to be, in her signature warm, irreverent and direct way. Emma was named Speech Broadcaster of the Year by the prestigious Radio Academy for her agenda-setting interviews. Previously, she was the Women's Editor at The Telegraph and The Sunday Times agony aunt. She is a proud patron of Smart Works. Period is her first book.

Rosie Boycott is a cross bench peer in the House of Lords, founder of Spare Rib Magazine, and co-founder of 5x15.
