We celebrated International Women’s Day with a special livestreamed recording of the smash-hit podcast The Guilty Feminist, co-presented by Jo Brand.
Following their sell-out event at the Science Museum in 2018, the award-winning comedy podcast presented by Deborah Frances-White returned for a live virtual show. This event, discussing all things women in medicine and healthcare, featured special guests including:
- Jo Brand (co-presenter): BAFTA-winning comedian, actor and writer—and former psychiatric nurse—whose many writing credits include Getting On, acclaimed for its realistic portrayal of an NHS hospital
- Dame Sally Davies DBE: UK Special Envoy on Antimicrobial Resistance, Master of Trinity College Cambridge, and former Chief Medical Officer for England
- Angela Saini: Science journalist, author of Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and Superior: The Return of Race Science
This event was a part of the Science Museum Group’s Open Talk programme, a series of events that aims to share the untold stories of science and encourage an understanding of both the causes and effects of discrimination.
