Bettany Hughes on Radio 4

I've now heard the historian, Bettany Hughes, three times on Radio 4: presenting her two half-hour programmes, Banishing Eve, and as one of the guests on Loose Ends yesterday, when I was horrified to learn of the cruel death meted out to Hypatia. I was very interested in Hughes' examination of the rĂ´le of women in the founding of the Christian Church, and I warmed to her expressive voice, lively delivery and rich vocabulary. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00rl4kn

Very clearly there was a deal of misogyny among the early hierarchy of the early church, and clearly there are many members of the church today who are still of that persuasion. I would welcome another series about institutional sex prejudice, this time specifically about the medical profession's ignoble history of prejudiced views about women and damaging treatment of them, which, like the sexism within the church, still has a destructive presence today.
