Preview – Women, Sex and Society: A Timewatch Guide

Helen Castor - Women, Sex and Society

The promises from president elect, Donald Trump, and the protesting that has occurred in America post Election Day, has once again raised serious questions as to the empowering role and rights for women.

From upfront suffragette protests to viral social campaigns, historian and broadcaster Helen Castor, explores the fundamental shifts that have occurred for women’s rights and the revolution to transform the role of women everywhere, in the BBC documentary – Women, Sex and Society: A Timewatch Guide.

Drawing on decades of BBC archives Helen examines how the behaviour of women activists has been documented by the media and how each generation of feminists have transformed the role of women in Britain today.

Women, Sex and Society: a Timewatch Guide is showing on BBC4 tonight from 9pm.
