Total runtime 120min

What power does a word hold? ‘Bitch’ is usually a term of contempt directed at women – but has it/can it be reclaimed? In what's likely to become a heated event, with thinkers, commentators and performers giving their take on it, we hope to address the debate head-on: is it time to re-define the word ‘bitch’?
