Presented by Jenni Murray. Arlene Phillips, best known for her work on BBC's Strictly Come Dancing talks about her life career and new project the musical Flashdance. Vaginal atrophy is a distressing condition that affects up to fifty percent of women after the menopause. We hear from one sufferer and talk to Dr David Sturdee, Consultant Gynaecologist and President of the International Menopause Society about possible treatments. And following the news this week that the Coalition Government is to cut child benefit for those with incomes over £44,000 we consider whether the move is tough but unfair on many families. We hear from listeners and talk to Justine Roberts from Mumsnet and Dr Samantha Callan from the right leaning think tank the Centre for Social Justice.
