Recommend this event

Mary Beard, Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge, and author of SPQR, The Parthenon and Pompeii, looks at the image and reality of women in power, from the myth of matriarchy to Theresa May.

What has been so ‘funny’ about the idea of women being in charge? What does ‘breaking the glass ceiling’ really mean?

In collaboration with the London Review of Books
