Presented by Jane Garvey. Pamela Stephenson The psychotherapist, comedienne, author, wife of Billy Connolly and now ballroom dancer on BBC Television's Strictly Come Dancing, joins Jane to talk about her new role. Since 1993, nearly four hundred women have been murdered, raped or have disappeared in Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican city near the border with the US. This month artist Tamsyn Challenger launches an exhibition of paintings to highlight the brutal murders and rapes. We look at the rise in middle aged female bankruptcy and Marie-Louise Stenild talks about making history by becoming the first woman ever to run seven marathons in seven days over seven different continents.
