A venerable BBC Radio show called Woman’s Hour decided to mark the release of its “Power List” by pointing a video camera at fifteen of its “Powerlisters” – including Tracey Emin (CBE!) – and asking them to share their experiences, advice and philosophy for a successful working life. The resulting shorts are available to view on the show’s own website, and on its YouTube channel.
Despite the definitive-sounding title, “How To Be A Powerful Woman”, some of the testimony given by the various interviewees can be quite contradictory (Don’t have kids… unless you want to, in which case, do!), so I’m not sure how helpful it will be to young girls seeking direction… and I feel a knee-jerk snobbery against any list that would place Emin so close to Victoria Beckham (even if it is in alphabetical order!)… but I enjoyed watching these clips all the same.
