An incident involving a man, a smell and a well-known bookstore made her ask what place feminism has in modern Britain, whether the fight has been won or is being fought on different fronts. Plus, why did Bic launch the "Bic for Her" - a pen specifically designed for a woman's hand?

In episode one she asks why feminism became a dirty word and whether the modern British woman needs it. From a smell in a well known bookshop to a pen designed specially for women, she looks at some of the more ridiculous things associated with being a woman.

Fred MacAulay helps her remember some of the key incidents which brought her to an epiphany and a call to arms.

Producer; Alison Vernon-smith.

Bridget Christie returns in another series of her multi-award winning series about modern feminism.

Bridget thought that she'd be able to put her feet up after her last Radio 4 series, she expected it to bomb. Sadly it was a huge success and she's had to bang on about feminism ever since, perform two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh festival and win lots of awards.

But she hasn't managed to single-handedly eradicate sexism so she's made a whole new four-part series about it for Radio 4.

In this final episode, she talks about why she's not grateful Russell Brand has stopped being a sexist, what happens when you wear an end FGM badge on a popular TV show and why politics has a women problem.

She's assisted in this by the series' token man, Fred MacAulay.

The series is written and performed by Bridget Christie and the producers are Alexandra Smith and Alison Vernon Smith.
