A government consultation asks whether the term domestic violence should be widened to include the phrase "coercive control". How proposed changes to pensions will affect more than 500,000 women across the UK. And following our interview with a mother labelled a significant risk of harm to her son following a visit to her GP for mild depression, we hear from listeners and a GP about their concerns it will put off some women from coming forward for treatment.
