Parental Favouritism, Work-life Balance, Women in Business

How natural is it for a parent to have a favourite child and should you acknowledge it? We hear from one mother who talks about the taboo subject. One Conservative MP has openly expressed her frustration at her lack of promotion from the backbenches. She's just one of a larger group of women MPs from the 2010 intake who are keen to get ahead. How likely are they to get a foot on the ladder in the next government reshuffle? The term work life balance is much used but does it fudge the necessary choices that have to be made as a working mother? In Women in Business we catch up with inventor Tanya Ewing and her mentor. Presented by Jane Garvey.
