The Women's Podcast
A new podcast from The Irish Times. By women, for everyone.
Women In Construction & Caroline Criado-Perez
Picture a construction worker and you probably don't see a woman. The Construction Industry Federation is trying to encourage more females into the sector, so here at The Women's Podcast we decided to shine a light on some of the women who are already there.
In this podcast you'll hear from Krystyna Linkowska, Tara Flynn and Catherine Murphy - three female bosses in the building trade.
Later on in this episode, we hear from the feminist writer responsible for getting a woman on an English banknote for the very first time. Caroline Criado-Perez is a self confessed #nastywoman and she spoke to Irish Times journalist Elaine Edwards in London recently.
The Irish Times Women's Podcast is presented by Kathy Sheridan. The podcast is produced and researched by Róisín Ingle and Jennifer Ryan.
