Laura Jurd brings her trumpet to the Woman's Hour studio for a spot of jazz improvisation. Sally Becker explains why she has refused chemotherapy and discusses the potential impact of her decision. The TUC says that today is Equal Pay Day and the period from now until the end of the year represents the fifteen per cent gender pay gap - so, what's being done to close it? Does adulthood begin at 25 - we hear about the scientific evidence which may suggest it does. And, sometimes playful, other times rather darker - we explore the art of flirting in Shakespeare.
