What misconceptions do we still have about women's minds and bodies? On International Women’s Day, A/Prof Caroline Ford interviews award-winning British science journalist and broadcaster Angela Saini about bias in science and medical research, and the implications for public trust in science and women’s health.

Angela Saini presents science programmes on the BBC, and her writing has appeared in New Scientist, The Sunday Times, National Geographic and Wired. Her latest book, Superior: the Return of Race Science, was a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize and named a book of the year by The Telegraph, Nature and Financial Times. Her previous book, Inferior: How Science Got Women Wrong, has been translated into thirteen languages. Angela has a Masters in Engineering from the University of Oxford and was a Fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology
