Womanhood 26 November 2021: Friday on BBC Two

Women are making their voices heard and making headline news. #MeToo, Reclaim the Night and equal pay cases have raised urgent questions about what it is to be a woman at home, at work and in love.

In Womanhood, six famous women spanning different age ranges, backgrounds and experiences come together in Leeds to tackle some of the most hotly contested issues.

Broadcaster Kirsty Wark is joined by dancer Shirley Ballas, writer Chidera Eggerue, businesswoman Jacqueline Gold, singer Sinitta Malone and comedian Suzi Ruffell. Together, they want to explore the role of women and their place in society. They share their personal experiences and meet people who challenge their views on consent, coercive control, cosmetic surgery, women’s safety on the streets, trans rights, sex work and childcare.

Over 50 years ago, the Equal Pay Act and the Women’s Liberation movement promised change. But is life better or worse for women today?
