She smelt a fart in the women’s studies section of a bookshop and decided to do some stand up about feminism.
After her win of the Fosters award at the Edinburgh Fringe with her show Bic For Her, Radio 4 are repeating the first series of Bridget Christie Minds the Gap. A brilliant series about what women’s rights means in the world today, it is wickedly sharp and searingly funny.
Bridget Christie is one of my heroes because she talks about something serious in such a funny way that it feels all encompassing, and as though it’s entirely possible for women to be close to having equal rights. It’s a stand up radio comedy show that manages to not only make me laugh but to give me hope as well.
