SIM Ep 500, Chops 205: In the picture with Dr Catherine McCormack

For millennia, men have written the narrative around women's bodies and sexuality, and this applies to visual representations too, says Dr Catherine McCormack, art historian, independent curator, and author of the new book Women In The Picture: Women, Art And The Power Of Looking. Jen caught up with Catherine to talk about just that, as well as the debate around censorship and whitewashing history, the difference between liberation and exploitation, and errrr, Nuts magazine.


Catherine refers to historic allegations of abuse made against film director and actor Woody Allen. Allen has vehemently and consistently denied these.
