We speak to Clemmie Hooper - aka the midwife and influencer Mother of Daughters, who recently suspended her Instagram account after the trolling got too much - about why men and women are not equal in the eyes of social media. Why doesn’t her husband, Simon (aka Father of Daughters), who exists in exactly the same family and has twice the amount of followers, get nearly so much abuse? We talk misogyny and mothering; why women aren’t allowed to be financially successful in the same way men are; and why the best thing to do is to just rise above.
Also today, we make Producer Charlie’s week, and discuss The World Cup - High Low style.
For anyone experiencing domestic abuse or if you know of someone who is and want to help them, please call The National Domestic Violence Helpline on 0808 2000 247.
