Katherine, Nisa & Yi discuss some recent releases all about ‘Celebrating Women’.
We wanted to mark International Women’s Day: More Powerful Together (2019’s motto) in this Podcast by reviewing three women focused titles.
What follows was a robust female focused discussion that sheds light on the current state of women’s lives in the world today and the progress we still need to make to achieve equality.

Germaine: the Life of Germaine Greer by Elizabeth Kleinhenz, 2018
Betraying Big Brother: Feminist Awakening in China by Leta Hong Fincher, 2018
