Dr Victoria Bateman is an economics fellow and feminist at Gonville and Caius college. She caused controversy when her nude portrait (painted by Anthony Connolly RP) was exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London in May 2014 in an attempt to change perceptions of the female body. In this talk she will present the feminist message behind the portrait and highlight the essential role feminism can play not only in improving women’s lives but also in eliminating global poverty.
