STACEY DOOLEY: IN CONVERSATION
Stacey Dooley has firmly established herself as one of BBC3’s most celebrated presenters through her hugely popular investigative series, covering a wide-range of topics from sex trafficking in Cambodia, to Yazidi women fighting back in Syria.
At the core of her reporting are incredible women in extraordinary and scarily ordinary circumstances – from sex workers in Russia, to victims of domestic violence in Honduras. In her first book, On the Front Line with the Women Who Fight Back, Stacey drew on her encounters with these brave and wonderful women, using their experiences as a vehicle to explore issues at the centre of female experience.
At Words Weekend, Stacey talks about her remarkable career so far, and explores the themes of her books and programmes, discussing everything from gender equality, to sex trafficking and sexual identity, weaving these global strands together in an exploration of what it is to be women in the world today.
Presented by Words Weekend.
