Woman's Hour - Reading in schools; Australian election; gay rights in Uganda; medal-winning rower, Helen Glov…

With Jenni Murray. Should teaching of reading be left to schools? Australia's general election; gay rights campaigners on life in Uganda; and medal-winning rower Helen Glover.

Can parents help children improve their reading or should it be left to the teachers? This Saturday voters in Australia's general election go to the polls - but in a campaign in which women candidates have been rated for their "sex appeal" and opposition leader Tony Abbott has bragged about his daughters' attractiveness in a bid to win votes - what can women expect from the 2013 election? Gay rights campaigners on the discrimination blighting the lives of gay people in Uganda; and Olympic and World champion, rower Helen Glover. Jenni Murray presents the programme that offers a female perspective on the world.
