A couple of weeks ago Prof Mary Beard gave this very important and interesting lecture on TV. You can still read it in the LRB and watch it online.
Women are still under huge pressure to KEEP OUT of public affairs and political discourse. A survey shows that on the internet, women are far more likely than men to be targetted by trolls saying, "Shut up, you bitch". One survey found that women were THIRTY times more likely to get that sort of abuse. I find that very believable.
You can still read this lecture on the website of the London Review of Books or watch it on U-Tube.
