Publisher's Summary

To the Woman is Audible UK’s flagship podcast series for International Women’s Day.

Celebrated as “utterly gripping, brave, honest” (Sunday Times), “poignant” (Financial Times), “a heart-warming display of sisterhood” (Elle) and “inspirational” (Grazia), season two is hosted by June Sarpong OBE - a former To the Woman (Season 1) contributor and the BBC’s first Director of Creative Diversity.

In this series, June brings together a group of exceptional women from both sides of the Atlantic to celebrate inspirational women from around the world. Each episode begins with a prompt: “To the woman …” followed by five themes - “To the woman that shaped me,” “To the woman that loved me,” “To the woman that heard me,” “To the woman that saved me,” and “To the women that surround me.” What begins as a simple prompt becomes a larger narrative of love, friendship and a celebration of women.

Contributors for To the Woman (Season 2) include: Rose McGowan, Jess Philips, Ruth Davidson, Munroe Bergdorf, Bonnie Greer, Gina Martin, Anita Sarkeesian, Jada Sezer, Rosie Jones, Helen Lederer, Laura Bates, Sinéad Burke, Miranda Kane, Nora Monsecour, Jen Agg, Zing Tsjeng, Sabrina Mafouz, Sophie Scott, Deborah Coughlin and Alix Fox.

A delightful and inspiring celebration of women

This series moved me to tears more than once. It made me think about the women in my life. I helped me to realise that in our society women don’t often openly celebrate their unique relationships with other women, and we should. I loved this series so much.

Elderly? Not while i draw breath!

l loved this, I have been listening to it in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, retired, feeling isolated, a bit sorry for myself, inside I feel in my 30s, so much I still want to do with my life, and yet it's people's attitudes to someone of my age that annoy me! The other day a friend made the comment re isolating yourself and said in all seriousness "you and other elderly", to say I was affronted and annoyed is to put it mildly, cheeky cow! Some of the letters have reaffirmed my belief that just because you are a woman of a certain age, you should not let others opinions, actions or beliefs lead you to act or be, less than you know you are, I have no intention of ever being "elderly" or of being who I am not just to fit in with their presumptions. if that makes me a "difficult" woman, then so be it, it has taken me a very long time to get this confident and comfortable in my own skin and I will allow no one to undermine me however well meaning they may be.

Inspirational and comforting.

This podcast serves as a reminder of just how blooming lucky we are to be surrounded by powerful women. I listened to it during lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic and when you are already missing those closest to you, the letters feel all the more personal and really hit a nerve. I have been inspired to write to my women. To the women that matter to me. Thank you for the reminders, the inspiration and the comfort in knowing that I too am blessed with such wonderful, wonderful women.

nice audio book

can people please stop complaining about the timeline being confusing? It was very clearly colored differently in the past. The film was very well done in all technically aspects, plus some very fine acting and lines that land very powerfully. The overall story is compelling and well paced, with a strong willed heroine to boot.
