Woman's Hour - Caroline Criado-Perez, Laura Bates, Allegra McEvedy's perfect hangover food
Feminism 2013 style, introverts v extroverts, and a profile of Mrs Oliphant, the writer of our 15 Minute Drama. Plus, the perfect hangover food. Presented by Jenni Murray.
From the campaign to get Jane Austen on our bank notes to getting girls off Page 3, feminism has taken centre stage in 2013. But as it becomes more mainstream what difficulties has that highlighted and how can those be resolved in the coming year. How can the momentum of the last twelve months be maintained and what campaigns lie ahead.
If you are planning to see in the New Year with a few drinks tonight, then tomorrow could start with some of us at least feeling a bit the worse for wear. So how do you clear away those cobwebs and not least that banging head that accompanies the morning after. The chef Allegra McEvedy has the perfect food for hangovers.
Opposites attract (or so the age-old saying goes) but differing expectations during social occasions can be an issue of contention. If you're a gregarious extrovert that thrives on champagne and small-talk and your partner is a pensive introvert who'd rather snuggle up in front of the fire, how will you navigate the festivities together?
This week's 15 minute drama Hester, is based on the novel by Margaret Oliphant, better known as Mrs Oliphant. She published nearly a hundred novels and her portrayals of provincial life have been compared to the likes of George Eliot. This new dramatisation brings to life the remarkable women portrayed in her novel Hester, first published in 1883.
