It is very short notice but just in case someone is interested and free to participate, please let Leighton Kitson and Jo/Sylvie know.
BBC Radio Tees would like to speak to someone from an academic perspective about the issue of women fighting on the frontline.
They are interviewing a former soldier, Chantelle Taylor, who is believed to be the first British female soldier to kill someone while serving on the frontline: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2069988/First-female-soldier-kill-combat-Chantelle-Taylor-says-me.html?ito=feeds-newsxml
If we were to provide an interviewee they would be on air with Chantelle as part of a discussion about the issue. The interview would be live at 10.15am tomorrow (Tuesday).
Would this be something someone from the Centre for Sex, Gender and Sexualities could do from a gender/equality perspective? Please tell me if not.
If someone might be available, I’d be happy to talk it through first with them before putting them forward.
