Weekend Woman's Hour

Listen in pop-out player

Presented by Jane Garvey. Farmers, code-crackers and factory workers: we hear about the experiences of millions of women during the Second World War. Ovarian cancer and what new guidelines from NICE will mean for diagnosis and treatment. We hear about the work of one organisation and how it helps men who are released from prison to reconnect with their families. Why feminism is back on the agenda in Poland. With the current debate about male primogeniture triggered by the royal wedding, we take a look at the historic queens we might have had. Cook the Perfect... Shepherd's Pie with leading food writer Lindsey Bareham. More parents than ever are taking children out of school for term-time holidays, but can it ever be justified?
