In this penultimate episode of Season 1, we were so glad to sit down with Caroline Light, the Director of Undergraduate Studies at Harvard University's Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality, who was so kind to share some time with us.

Women in Public Space

  • Seantel and Caroline discussed how, often for women, existing in public space is a matter of safety. Click here for a report from the United Nations covering this issue.

Sexist Advertising

  • They also discussed sexism in advertising, especially in the postwar era. See here for some truly appalling examples.

  • On a better note, see here for some vintage ads with the classic roles reversed.
