Presented by Jane Garvey. Why people are coming out gay at a younger age. A recent report by the gay campaign group Stonewall has found that people are revealing their sexual identity at a younger age than previous generations. Jenni Uglow the biographer of Elizabeth Gaskell talks about the new Woman's Hour drama "Wives and Daughters" and we discuss how rape continues to be used as a weapon of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
