Barbara Hulanicki the designer behind the swinging sixties fashion brand Biba, talks about the importance of design. How far have women's rights progressed in Egypt under the new regime? Have they improved, or been eroded since the revolution. Can a "toxic culture" explain why so many women leave the corporate world ? And after Lisa Brown, a US Democratic representative in Michigan, was recently thrown out of a local government debate on abortion for referring to her vagina we ask; why can't women use the word "vagina" in US politics? Did Michigan politicians react to the word itself or the increasingly polarised debate on abortion?
