Weekend Woman's Hour

58 minutes
First broadcast:
Saturday 11 February 2012

Should stalking be a specific offence in England and Wales ? Why only a fifth of women who start training as architects actually qualify as professionals. We catch up with our Women in Business - Jo Pateman, Niki King and Tanya Ewing after a year working with their mentors. The new chair of the British Fertility Society talks to us about the shortage of specialists in male fertility which could mean men's reproductive health is overlooked.
Plus Jane talks to Miss Piggy about her latest outing on the big screen and music from Radio 2 Folk Award nominees, Lady Maisery.

Presented by Jane Garvey.
Editor: Beverley Purcell.
