Phyllida Lloyd and Melissa Dunne on gender-blind casting. As an all-female Julius Caesar opens on the London stage and a festival of new writing asks for scripts which don't specify whether the character is a man or a woman - we explore what difference it makes whether men or women play dramatic roles?
How black and ethnic minority women are being discriminated against in all stages of the recruitment process. We hear about a new report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Race and Community.
Alaa Murabit - founder of The Voice of Libyan Women - discusses women's involvement in politics pre and post the overthrow of President Muammar Gaddafi.
Mourning for a miscarriage. The experiences of Zoe and Andy Clark-Coates have led them to organise a series of services for other parents to publicly acknowledge their loss and grief. The Saying Goodbye initiative is holding a service this weekend at Bristol Cathedral.
Mark Lawson and Lucy Cavendish discuss whether the rules are different for men and women when it comes to publicly admitting that you fancy an actor ?
