Woman's Hour - Sex education, men's haircuts, Aruna Roy, retelling war & Liverpool's Turnaround Project
With Sheila McClennon. How much will a man pay for a haircut?; the rights of India's rural poor; the impact of war on civilian life; and women offenders turn their lives around.
Presented by Sheila McClennon. A snip at half the price - how much will a man pay for a haircut? Is sex education in schools failing pupils? A new survey shows nearly half of secondary school pupils think their school's Sex and Relationships Education does not meet their needs. Social Activist, Aruna Roy, is best known for her campaigns to better the lives of the rural poor in India. She organised a campaign which resulted in the Right to Information Act, and she explains how it's helping to fight corruption at all levels of Indian society. Writers, Zoe Lambert and Michelle Green, have both drawn on personal experience to explore how war impacts on civilian life. But how do you convey the realism of war without glorifying it? And, the project helping women offenders to turn their lives around.
