The long history of women not being taken seriously

Clip: 12/29/2017 | 7m 36s

The way women operate today in the public sphere is not too different from how they did in the literature of Homer or the Middle Ages, says Mary Beard, a leading feminist and expert in ancient history. Beard joins Jeffrey Brown for a conversation on women in politics and her latest book, "Women and Power: A Manifesto," an exploration into how women's voices have been historically silenced.
