I could ring him up. They hired me to be me. The fact that I decide not to dye my hair or do Botox or wear make-up does not mean I have no interest in my physical appearance. It is hard to imagine the days when Prof Mary Beard, the card-carrying feminist who has brought the Romans to us with such joyous clarity on television, was a shrinking violet.
Now when I speak I feel like me. Time and television have liberated her.
But her public profile has also made her an easy target for sexist abuse. They are not certain where their jobs will come from. We all need to think about that. It is too simple to say they are just a nasty load of women-haters.
