How we used to talk about… Women - Virgins, Vixens and Viragos

Marking 100 years since the first female emancipation laws, this podcast explores the changing use of language regarding women in British society.

We ask whether the way women are talked about has really changed in the last 1000 years?

Has progress been made? Is the world sliding back into outdated ways or are we witnessing a time of genuine change?

Join historian Lauren Johnson @History_Lauren in this discussion with Curator Polly Putnam, @CurtatorPolly, Dr Diane Atkinson @DitheDauntless,  and Dr Nicola Clark @NikkiClark86
