Extensive listening: Blurred lines, the new battle of the sexes

Blurred lines, the new battle of the sexes is a BBC documentary about changing attitudes to women on today's world. The BBC introduced the programme this way:

"From extreme laddism at universities to rape jokes in the school yard... Kirsty Wark explores whether there's a new culture abroad in which it's acceptable to write about, talk about, and feature women in a sexually offensive, even abusive way. Or whether the female of the species just needs to 'man up', learn to enjoy a gag, and get used to the 21st century world."

You can read the transcript for the first ten minutes of the programme here.

Contains some violent scenes, and strong language and scenes which some viewers may find upsetting from the start.
