Ruby Wax, Anne Brontë, Childcare costs

Ruby Wax discusses depression and her quest to establish an environment where people can talk freely about their own mental illness. Against a background of rising costs in childcare, there's new research today showing that families can expect to continue to struggle over the next four years. We look at how affordable childcare is and how it can be paid for. We hear how nearly two years after the Haitian earthquake, women and young girls living in camps are being subjected to sexual violence. Campaigners say the response of the authorities to such attacks has been wholly inadequate. As we begin a ten-part serialisation of Anne Brontë's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, we discuss why the book's 1848 publication was controversial and what it tells us about women's position in that period.
Presented by Jane Garvey.
