Is it time to call in the Grandmothers?
In the final episode of this first series of The Rise of the Feminine we reflect on the topics discussed with guests, revisit highlights of the show, where more than 40 different experts provided wisdom and important insights informing our present and future. The main topic for the episode is the role of elders, primarily women elders. We will look at the significance of the older, wise women and the archetype of the grandmother and the contribution they have been making to the rise of the feminine. As we move away from patriarchy, the dominant culture of the last few thousand years, this show is interested in how we view women leaders who are older, and explore why we have such a problem with older women in society. With contributions from Gary Malkin, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Philippa Blackham and Janice Dolley.

The Price of Motherhood - Too Expensive, Cheap Labour or Priceless?
Today we have five guests on our subject of motherhood exploring the cost of this to women, the lost opportunities and how a new narrative is being created about maternity leave and women returning to work. This is a great follow-on from previous conversations about the Feminisation of Business because achieving greater equality at the top of organisations is very much hampered by women leaving the talent pipeline that serves those executive positions. Taking time out for motherhood is obviously a key factor. My conversations will be with Prof Shelley Correll from the Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford Universit: Indra Adnan of the Soft Power Network, a specialist in ‘new’ transformational politics, London: Andrea Vitullo, co-author of Maternity is the Master and CEO of Inspire, based in Milan, Italy: Dr Giorgia Arnaboldi, CEO Shell Germany: and finally Dr Kaouthar Darmoni, asst Professor of Gender and Media in the Netherlands.

The Feminisation of Capitalism
Business is changing and if it isn’t, it seems to be in trouble. New priorities and new values are being embraced and with love, care, compassion, collaboration and valuing relationships all being embraced more widely. It really looks like the feminisation of business is starting to take place to the benefit of both men and women. Many speakers talked about a shift happening articulating how the system both needs and is ready for embracing a new version of capitalism in the 21st century, and with these new feminine values, women will be bringing more answers and providing much more important leadership. This episode of The Rise of the Feminine is a continuation of my report from the WIN Conference and we are looking at “The Feminisation of Capitalism”. With guests Kristin Engvig, Geraldine Bown,Avivah Wittenberg Cox and Raj Sisodia, I discuss workplace of the future and how feminisation will be able to fulfill the needs of these spaces.

This is part one of a 2-show special report where I speak with some of the world's leading experts in future forecasting as we look ahead to how work is being transformed and the role women need to play. Speakers Keith Coats from TomorrowToday and Nigel Nicholson, London Business School, discuss how women are better equipped to lead in this new era. Susan Schachterie and Dr Kaouthor Darmoni encourage women to use all their feminine insights and wisdom, and tap into their physical feminine intelligence to bring the woman's touch to their leadership.

50 Shades of Men
Just as women are finding empowerment and thriving in an era of increasing leadership by women, men are using the rise of the feminine to explore their own masculinity which for many has become out-dated and restrictive. Whether it's via coaching or men's groups, men are finding ways to understand and express themselves. Is this easier for younger generations or different cultures? This week's guests are Man Whisperer Kenny Mammarella D'Cruz reporting that men are no less frustrated at being able to find the right partner than women are. American in Paris, David Brower, reflects on how French culture brings a different masculinity to French men: and Nick Haines, founder of the Vitality Test, deconstructs his role as a father to three sons, preparing them for a new world of more open self-expression.

Trauma, The New Norm for Modern Teen Girls and a Different Way Forward
In the early teen years, girls are at their most impressionable age with their self identity least formed. They are very affected by messages coming from mainstream media including magazines and movies, and particularly social media via the Internet. Today our focus is this period of time when girls are most influenced by others. The Rise of the Feminine is interested in the journey that we each make as individual girls and women to the point where we wake up and we realise we have power, we have a voice and we can determine our own life path. There comes a point in a girl’s or woman's life when she understands the power she has to influence the world. In this episode of I will be discussing teenage girls and the influences that affect their self-esteem. My guests are Jane Kenyon the founder of Girls Out Loud, Sheila Single Editor in Chief of Honore Magazine, Paris and Kate Byrne, co-founder of Global Girl Media.
