Weekend Woman's Hour

Presented by Jane Garvey. Launch of our Women in Business series - meet the three we're following as we find out what it takes to succeed in these challenging times and hear listeners' experiences of building up their own companies. 'Tiger Mother' Amy Chua defends her parenting style and describes how she raised her American daughters the Chinese way. Beryl Bainbridge: biographer Michael Holroyd and writer Kate Mosse on the Man Booker's posthumous award. We explore the politics of the divorce name game: better to go back to your own than hang on to your ex's or do you never take your husband's name in the first place? The importance and value of war-time experiences in writing for children.
