Absolute powershed and regular host of The Guilty Feminist, Jessica Fostekew explores her big strong strength. Have you ever watched a feminist try and take ‘hench’ as a compliment? It’s like watching a snake eat but funny.

As seen on Motherland, Cuckoo and BAFTA Award-winning drama Three Girls. Soon to appear in forthcoming feature films Official Secrets (Gavin Hood) and Greed (Michael Winterbottom).
