We hear from the women behind the Power List, and talk to the second most powerful woman in Britain, Home Secretary Theresa May, and to power-lister Heather Rabbatts, first female director of the Football Association. Judges Alexandra Shulman, Oona King, Dawn O'Porter and media net-worker Julia Hobsbawm discuss what the list tells us. Getting women back to work in science, technology, engineering and maths jobs (STEM). The false accusations that led to one father's loss of contact with his daughter. Young women whose lives inspired The Glasgow Girls' musical. Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara.
