MEET THE CONTRIBUTORS BEHIND OUR VERY FIRST WE ARE WOMEN PODCAST…
Writer, Broadcaster & Comedian
The host of our podcast is top writer, broadcaster, comedian and agony aunt, Viv Groskop who takes us on the journey through the topic of change for this year’s International Women’s Day.
“Clothes are about self-expression and identity and mood and armour as much as they are about cut and thread and cloth and label.”
Comedian & Writer
A commended comedian and writer, Lucy Porter reflects on the importance of self-confidence, female friendship and re-discovering the desire for change.
“I’ve decided that it’s time to be unashamedly fabulous, beautiful, brilliant and wonderful”
Journalist & Author of ‘Hot Feminist’
Feminist, author and journalist Polly Vernon takes us through her enviable wardrobe to discuss the sartorial expression of identity and opinion.
“Clothes matter enormously for me – an opportunity for creativity & an opportunity to reaffirm my identity”
Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Writer and woman behind the blog Psychology Magpie.
Bringing her expertise to our hot topic, Lucy Maddox investigates the psychology of change and offers tips and tricks of how to develop habits and core values.
“It’s important we don’t get too caught up in thinking of behaviours being good or bad – life and humans are so much more complex than that.”
Journalist, TV and Radio Presenter. The Observer’s Agony Aunt, Co-presenter BBC Big Arts Challenge.
The woman behind The Observer’s ‘Dear Mariella’ advice column and a frequent face on TV and radio, Mariella Frostrup discusses change and the value that lies in always being open to re-invention and transformation.
“It’s incredibly important at every point in your life to be open to the idea of change and the idea of reinvention – even if you don’t do it just to think you might is quite a comfort.”
