My hour-long discussion on BBC Three Counties Radio

This morning I was in one of the BBC Three Counties Radio studios for an hour-long discussion with Jonathan Vernon-Smith (‘JVS’) on the topic of women in the workplace. The discussion was prompted by a recent report by the Women’s Business Council. When the file has been edited by he’ll post it on our YouTube channel along with more commentary, but I thought the followers of this blog might like to hear the discussion first. Here’s the iPlayer file, which should be accessible for seven days:

Four ladies contributed to the programme at various points – gender balance is a fine thing, isn’t it? – as you can see from the following timeline:

1:02:04 – 1:03:20 Introduction by JVS

1:05:58 – 1:13:26 Discussion between JVS and Ruby McGregor-Smith, chief executive of Mitie plc (a FTSE250 company) and chairwoman of the Women’s Business Council

1:13:27 – 1:20:21 JVS discussion with myself

1:21:19 – 1:28:33 We were joined by Caroline Criado-Perez, a journalist, feminist campaigner, and co-founder of Two further sections of the discussion at:

1:30:14 – 1:31:03

1:33:50 – 1:43:11

1:43:12 – 1:53:50 We were joined by Amanda Murrell who is the President of ‘Bedfordshire Businesswomen’. Part-way through this discussion, at 1:49:10, we were joined by a lady phoning the programme, ‘Ann from St Albans’. Ann spoke a great deal of common sense, and said that – given the chance – she’d vote for Justice for men & boys (and the women who love them). A fine woman.

I should like to thank JVS and BBC Three Counties Radio for giving me this opportunity to articulate some of our key arguments about the genders in the workplace. I also thank the ladies for their contributions.


About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  1. I think you’re doing great. You speak with confidence. It’s interesting how the fems and blue pillers (including the presenters) are adapting to try to cope with you. Having babies vs career. They tend to ignore biology – there’s a clock ticking for women. If you are going to work for 40/50 years what is wrong with women dropping out and having babies in their 20s when it’s the optimum time for their bodies? Older women tend to have a higher incidence of children with disabilities. Most men at my work place are in a job, not a career. The women that are there tend to be more career-minded, and they get ‘doors opened’ for them to achieve that.
