    This week on the Feminists Don't Wear Pink podcast, Scarlett Curtis meets actor Keira Knightley whose raw piece on childbirth in the book attracted so much attention last year when the media immediately pitted against the Duchess of Cambridge who gave birth on the same day. As well as discussing this pervasive media stereotype of female competition, Keira shares her experiences of shame, sexual objectification and motherhood.Buy the book here:

AMAZING

This podcast is so inspirational! All the women and Scarlett are inspiring and give such insight into feminism and society in ways I had not thought of before. I love it ! Also listening to podcasts makes me feel like my life is together

LinaOnThePod ,

Disappointing and basic

Many of the guests are some of my favourite women - smart, articulate, empathetic - but the host talks over them, asks basic questions, elbows in her own immature, unrefined viewpoint. Perhaps my hopes were too high…

AdjPeadu ,

Surprisingly A-list guests BUT ultimately disappointing

I say this with sincerest respect (because I see the host means well) but this podcast embodies more signalling of progressivism, intersectionality and inclusivity than it actually has the capacity for challenging and urgent conversations about issues affecting women from all walks of life. In a word, this feminist chat is very basic. As a disabled black woman, the conversation with Lena Dunham in particular reminded me why I’m wary of (and ultimately stopped) listening to feminist content by white women.
