2018: 'The Year of the Woman?'

For the last show of 2018, Annette Young heads to New York where we ask whether it really has been 'The Year of the Woman'. The year has been full of memorable moments such as Ireland repealing its abortion ban and the record number of women now entering the US Congress. Yet at the same time, populist leaders are also on the rise, leading an angry pushback against women’s rights. We also meet Susan Chira, Senior Gender Editor for the New York Times, who talks about how far we have come, or not.
