Catherine Mayer is a journalist, a best selling author and a former president of the foreign press association in London - she accidentally co founded a political party at the Woman of the World festival in March 2015. She's watched the Woman's Equality Party grow from an idea to a vibrant political force across the UK - she is now president.
Gender equality is good for everyone so why are women everywhere at best second class citizens. What will it take to reach gender equality?
Catherine's new book 'Attack of the 50 ft. Women' offers a tantilising preview of a gender equal future that could be ours. It's a brilliant, original book and Catherine takes us on a journey discussing global issues and debates impacting every one of us. She talks to co founder of the Women's Equality Party and actress Tanya Moodie who happens to be the reader of the audiobook. Halla Gunnarsdóttir is also involved in today's episode - a former advisor to the Icelandic government as well as Head of partnerships and policy for the Woman's Equality Party.
