The Guilty Feminist: Women in Medicine

With International Women’s Day just around the corner, we celebrated early with a special livestreamed recording of the smash-hit podcast The Guilty Feminist.

Watch now

Following their sell-out event at the Science Museum in 2018, the award-winning comedy podcast presented by Deborah Frances-White returns. This live virtual show, discussing all things women in medicine and healthcare, featured special guests including:

  • Jo Brand (Co-Presenter): BAFTA-winning comedian, actor and writer—and former psychiatric nurse—whose many writing credits include Getting On, acclaimed for its realistic portrayal of an NHS hospital
  • Dame Sally Davies DBE: UK Special Envoy on Antimicrobial Resistance, Master of Trinity College Cambridge, and former Chief Medical Officer for England
  • Angela Saini: Science journalist, author of Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong and Superior: The Return of Race Science

This event was a part of the Science Museum Group’s Open Talk programme, a series of events that aims to promote STEM to everyone and to encourage an understanding of both the causes and effects of discrimination.
