Im sure i once saw a quote from Caitlin Moran saying the reason she doesnt go on panel shows like Mock the Week is because they are so mysogynistic and male dominated.

There is an organisation that sorts out these bookings but I've forgotten the name.

I heard this, very interesting.

Someone still said that men get insulted too (ref Mary Beard) and it could be just a question of 'how you take it' though. I am paraphrasing, this was my impression.

didn't listen to it but will later. I am a radio 4 listener and am frequently infuriated by the lack of women that are invited to speak generally and also on issues that primarily impact upon women.

I was pleasantly surprised on Tuesday (I think - the days all merge into one) where the only two 'experts' talking about a subject were both women and it was just a general topic. I'm now less surprised as now I feel it may have been a nod to today's programme.
