Presented by Jane Garvey. Is gender pre-determined or the product of our environment? Businesswoman Jacqueline Gold describes her agonising decision in a twin pregnancy when told one of her babies was not expected to live. The Nordic campaigners who fought in Scandinavia's age of austerity and came out with a better deal for women - could it happen here? And poetry in a tin can - why a trip to the supermarket could bring out your inner bard.
