The 60s are indelibly linked with ‘swinging London’: a revolutionary decade, one that even those born after re-live in their imaginations. The era is synonymous with disruption and glamour: ‘Beyond the Fringe’, Beatlemania, Mary Quant’s mini skirt, the Lady Chatterley trial. But did the world really change for women? Was the availability of “the pill” on the NHS a liberation, or a trap? How do women look back on an age supposedly devoted to sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll? Virginia Nicholson, social historian, will be in conversation with broadcaster Joan Bakewell.
