Actress Natascha McElhone appeared in a special televised debate about modern-day feminism on Tuesday (29Oct13).

The Truman Show actress joined academic Mary Beard and journalist Angela Epstein in the BBC Newsnight discussion to argue the merits of feminism in the digital age.

MCElhone insisted the battle for gender equality is ongoing, but claimed the word 'feminism' makes it hard for men and women to work together to end prejudice.

She told the current affairs show, "Feminism is a very easy word for people to reject... It's very, very easy for feminism to start to mean something that's akin to a political class that's in opposition to men and so therefore people will feel defensive around that word and I want that not to happen. I want to work together with men and I'm interested in equality."
