Melissa Benn (2014 event)

Airbrushed supermodels, unrealistically skinny celebrities, casual sexism in the media. Why, despite everything, are women still not paid equally or properly represented on corporate boards? These are the questions posed by Melissa Benn in her book What Should We Tell Our Daughters? In this event, filmed live at the 2014 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Benn discusses the latest research with Chloe Combi, and presents a positive manifesto for mothers and daughters.

You can also watch our short interview with Melissa Benn, filmed when she was in Charlotte Square Gardens. You can find both of these recordings on our YouTube channel.
