Miss Piggy, Sister Fa, Charles Dickens's Women

Listen in pop-out player

Jane meets Hollywood Diva Miss Piggy as The Muppets return to the big screen. We hear from a leading female cleric who'll be taking part in a silent protest to overcome obstacles in the way of women becoming bishops in the Church of England. Senegalese hip-hop artist Sister Fa tells us why she's in the UK to campaign against Female Genital Mutilation. Charles Dickens: a philanthropic genius or an adulterer and bully? In the week that marks his bicentenary we look at the man behind the books and the women in his life. And we also take a look at women in architecture - why do so many women appear to give up on training? Presented by Jane Garvey.
