Women Shaping the World – The Podcast

Women Shaping The World

The Woman Shaping the World podcast questions the links between feminism and culture in France and in the UK. How do culture and pop culture influence political and social change? How do artists, authors, filmmakers, and theatre directors integrate feminist issues into their work?

France has a long history of feminism. In the wake of the Second World War, it was at the forefront of what is now called the Second Wave of Feminism, with influential intellectuals and politicians such as Simone de Beauvoir or Simone Weil. Since then, feminism has evolved a lot, especially in the UK and the US, but we are still far from full equity.

Each month, we invite two influential voices to discuss the intricate links between feminist topics and culture, and hopefully pave the way to a better understanding of the issues at stake.
Hosted by Clémence Rebourg (Institut français)
