Women Bishops, Housework, Living with HIV

Housework and why it still divides the genders. As the Church of England's Synod prepares to vote on plans to allow women to become bishops, we look at the implications of what would be the biggest development since the ordination of women was approved 18 years ago. HIV and why it's no longer a barrier to becoming a mother. We hear from the artist behind a public art project involving more than 400 women and talk about its installation at Tate Modern.
