2 hours
First broadcast:
Thursday 18 October 2012

Join the debate with Nihal at 1. He's asking, do British Asians place more importance on a boy's higher education than on a girl's? The Asian Network's heard from a woman who ended up in a hostel after leaving home because she wanted to go to university against their wishes. This is obviously just one woman's story - but how common is such an experience? Are British Asian women still being held back from getting a higher eduction? Or did such attitudes disappear the day our parents and grandparents arrived in this country? After 2, beauty guru Priti Vyas answers your beauty related questions.
