In a 2014 BBC Radio segment, she expressed discomfort at women being rabbis.

Emma Barnett Career Highlights
Emma Barnett is the presenter of Woman’s Hour on Radio 4 Monday-Thursday at 10 am, or you can listen anytime on BBC Sounds. The programme has recently been extended to the full hour, and she is thrilled that this will give her and the team more time to cover the issues that matter to women around the world.
Emma joined Woman’s Hour from her BBC Radio 5 Live program after she was named the Best Speech Broadcaster of the Year by The Radio Academy. She also presents Newsnight on BBC Two and writes a column for the I Paper.
In 2019 Emma published her first book: Period. It’s About Bloody Time, with the goal to finally end the ridiculous taboo surrounding menstruation. The book is funny and touching, and it serves as a call-to-action to bring periods out of the dark corners of women’s mindsets and into society’s conscious discussion.
