On 6 February 1918, the British Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act, for the first time giving women the right to vote (provided they were over 30 and married). Now, 100 years later, equality has made huge strides, and yet in this age of Trump and Weinstein, sometimes it seems like very little has changed. We have a huge amount to celebrate, but we aren’t there yet
And sometimes feminism sounds like just another thing that women need to get better at.
“I’m a feminist, but some days even my life doesn’t pass the Bechdel Test”
On every episode of The Guilty Feminist podcast, comedian Deborah Frances-White and her guests discuss topics “all 21st century feminists agree on” while confessing their insecurities, hypocrisies and fears that underlie their lofty principles. The podcast has been a huge success with over 20,000,000 downloads since it started less than two years ago. Previous guests have included Sara Pascoe, Jo Brand, Sarah Millican, Jenny Eclair, Gemma Arterton and Phoebe Waller-Bridge
Now, The Guilty Feminist is joining forces with The Guardian for a very special show at the London Palladium, combining discussion, debate and stand-up comedy to celebrate 100 years of progress, and a look forward to the next hundred years, with wit, optimism, and maybe just a touch of righteous indignation.
Described as “hilarious, irreverent, eternally surprising, classy as hell, genius” (Guardian), Deborah Frances-White is a stand-up comedian whose BBC Radio 4 series won The Writers Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy.
The full line-up for this very special show will be announced shortly.
Enjoy A special live event celebrating 100 years of suffrage from the best seats in the house; indulge in Champagne and canapés in a private room served by your very own butler; or simply treat your family to an outing they’ll never forget.
