Are female empowerment adverts actually good for the cause?

In this edition we look at the power of social media - #metoo having sparked an international conversation about sexual harassment and abuse. Also, Claire Pryde discusses the merits of femvertising – or female empowerment advertising – with creative director Carrie Ingoglia. Plus, from refusing to wear a headscarf to becoming a jockey, we meet the Qatari woman challenging social norms.
