Mary Robinson, Labour Women Voters, Attica Locke
Mary Robinson joins Jenni to talk about her career as the first woman President of Ireland, her work at the UN and her human rights campaigns. How do political parties come up with labels such as 'Worcester Woman ' or 'Soccer Mom' and does it help them to attract women's votes? A campaign to improve school toilets wants to see the same standards apply to children's toilets as to teachers. And Attica Locke talks about her new book set on a Louisiana plantation turned museum, where African-American actors play slaves and modern tourists see a glossy interpretation of the past.
