Brand Feminism: SRSLY podcast at WOW

Part of WOW – Women of the World

From Beyoncé to Taylor Swift, the Dior runway or #feminist posts on Instagram – what does it mean to make feminism part of your brand?
Does being fashionable allow feminism to effect real change, or do important conversations about race, class, disability, sexuality and privilege get lost when ‘girl power’ becomes marketing? Do people in the public eye have a responsibility to be role models or are we expecting too much?

SRSLY, the pop culture podcast from the New Statesman hosted by Caroline Crampton and Anna Leszkiewicz, explore how celebrities champion women’s empowerment and if #feminism can translate into activism. With Zing Tsjeng, UK Editor of's female-vertical Broadly and author of the book series Forgotten Women; Simran Hans, film critic for The Observer and culture writer, Emma Gannon, author and broadcaster and Jazmin Kopotsha, Culture Writer at The Debrief.

Presented in association with SRSLY, the pop culture podcast from the New Statesman.
