Reporter Shanai spoke to actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw about her role and experience in the historically important story, Misbehaviour. Gugu discussed the need for young people's perspectives, the collective power of people coming together and the fight for equality.

Misbehaviour tells the story of the 1970 Miss World competition and how the newly formed Women's Liberation Movement disrupted the pageant in a protest against its treatment of women. Not only this, but Western beauty ideals were turned on their head too when the judges crowned a Black woman Miss World - a first in the pageant's history and something that caused a massive uproar.
