Julia has a knack for getting the trust of her guest who relaxed and engaged reveals important stuff. Her choice of guests has with few exceptions been excellent. They are as diverse as well accomplished. Whether of a heart wrenching start and so wise and so strong (Marcia Langton) or brilliant humane and hilarious (Kathy Lette) or simply responsible and exceptional at getting extraordinary work done as herself (Sally McManus), what a remarkable set. Don’t stop, PM Gillard. I

In an episode recorded in the studio back in March, Julia talks to journalist and writer Helen Lewis about her book, Difficult Women: A History of Feminism in 11 Fights, which uncovers the more unpalatable, imperfect sides of the pioneers who achieved some of the greatest gains for women throughout history. She explains that we need to see these women in all their nuances and imperfections, in order to remind ourselves that they’re not superhumans and that we’re all capable of fighting for change, no matter what mistakes we make. In the process, women should stop being “nice” and start being more “difficult” when it comes to pushing for equality, Helen says.

Frances-White believes her confessional and collaborative show, which is one of the most popular podcasts of all time, in which guests share the ways they’ve “failed” as feminists, can play a role in building women’s confidence and mobilising a movement for inclusive and open feminism.

Don’t stop, PM Gillard. I
