1 Fenella Greenfield discusses 'a corrupt and peculiar world'

Transcript:

It wasn’t that we were radical it was that the world in which we lived was just so peculiar and corrupt.  You know it is corrupt if people aren’t being promoted and being paid because of the talents and skills that they have, but there’s just a network that pushes everyone out that isn’t part of that network.

So, Women in Publishing I think it started because it was happening all over Britain, and all over Europe actually, that all the sort of conservative values that had gone into the Second World War and had come out and everybody thought  oh you still had to sort of defer to your elders and betters, which I had been brought up to do, I think there was just a kind of demographic time bomb that happened  which there was a lot of people, who were young, highly educated and including women, and suddenly because there were so many of them suddenly their ideas started coming to the fore.
