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.

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.

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

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.
