WOW Views on the News

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Take a closer look at today’s newspapers with WOW as the panel discusses what the headlines mean for gender equality and talk about dealing with the press.

Speakers include:

Stacey Dooley
Dooley has been one of the UK’s most loved documentary presenters since she first joined our screens as part of the 2007 BBC series, ‘Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts’. Since then, in her series Stacey Dooley Investigates, she has examined a variety of topics from sex trafficking and under-age sex slavery, to domestic violence. Stacey immersed herself in different groups with extreme ideologies and beliefs in a two-part series, Brainwashing Stacey Dooley, for BBC3 last year, in which she embraced the challenging world of pro-abortionists and the controversial arena of big-game hunting. In 2016, Stacey travelled to Iraq and presented the critically acclaimed documentary, Stacey Dooley on The Frontline: Gun Girls and ISIS, also for BBC3. 2017 has seen Stacey explore the dangerous world of child pornography in Japan, investigate the missing indigenous girls of Canada and go undercover in the growing criminal world of Britain’s digital drug dealers. She was also nominated for the Grierson award for ‘Best Documentary Presenter’ alongside Grayson Perry and Nadiya Hussein. Stacey’s book, On the Frontline with the Women who Fight Back is out now.
