Not heard of the documentary Civilisation? Its time you did.
Presented by the eminently straight-laced Kenneth Clark, Civilisation was a classic BBC documentary series that aired in the 60s albeit one that, according to those who watched it the first time, was a too-literal take on the history of man.
With the announcement that its coming back to the small screen, some of the UKs most prominent voices are calling for women and their achievements to be better represented in its new, digitally advanced incarnation.
ELLE editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy is backing Kathy Lettes campaign to not only get more women featured in the programme itself, but to have a female historian present it.
I have organised this petition with a quick ring round, because I don't want the BBC male hierarchy to just give the job to a bloke, without even thinking of alternatives, Lette whose argument is also presented in The Times today tells us.
I wanted to open up the debate. It's not that we're mounting our high horses and galloping off into the sanctimonious sunset, we are just tired of being ignored, overlooked and marginalised.
Its #ELLEfeminism in action and we cant wait to see what happens.
