What message does our hypersexualised culture and its airbrushed version of femininity send out to women and young girls whose ambitions often stop at fame, glamour and endorsement by men? To what degree are we limiting their futures, and what actions can we, as a society, take to counter the slide? In Living Dolls - written more than a decade after her seminal The New Feminism - broadcaster and writer Natasha Walter asks how its watchwords - 'choice', 'empowerment' and 'liberation' - have become so distorted, and at what cost? Katherine Rake is former director of the Fawcett Society, the UK's leading campaigning organisation for women's rights. One of the country's most prominent feminist voices, she currently heads up the government-funded Family and Parenting Institute. Join Natasha and Katherine for a pressing debate on the return of sexism. (DeadGoodBooks)
