From the trope of feminist 'bra-burning' to how uncomfortable underwires can be, to the way breasts are used to sell ethical causes.
How does the movement against bras just open up a market for 'bralettes', and how does it work for bigger-breasted people? Has queer(?) bralessness been taken over by pop-feminism?

(Another note: This was first broadcast and recorded some time before, when the Marriage Plebiscite was yet to be blocked in Parliament and was very much on everyone's lips. The above technical issues meant that we could not bring it to you before now.)

After the Week of the Day of Women, Nicky, Nida and Daria will talk about their experience of #iwd2016.
We also take a look back to the history of International Women's Day and some influential women with a bit of a light and musical angle.
It doesn't stop there, though - to keep in the 'International' in 'International Women's Day', Ollie brings us an interview with the (not 'a', 'the') Melissa Etheridge.
Yep, the water-needing, breathing, brave and crazy Ms Etheridge herself. You read that right.
Special thanks to 2SER, Ollie and of course Melissa Etheridge for the fab interview and Australian Voices for 'Not Now, Not Ever!', played this week.
