Financial Abuse; Kate Figes; Being Brave

We discuss financial abuse with Polly Neate from Women's Aid. Kate Figes on her book Our Cheating Hearts - why are people unfaithful? Why would women in their 20s consider botox or cosmetic surgery to look younger? Baroness Shirley Williams, historian Juliet Gardiner and writer Virginia Nicholson discuss the so called "surplus" women of the 1920s. Are independent midwives under threat through lack of insurance? Louise Silverton from the Royal College of Midwives, independent midwife Erika Thompson and mother, Jo Marchant discuss. Polly Morland author of The Society of Timid Souls and psychologist Dr Patrick Tissington talk about being brave. And Cat Power sings her new song, Bully.
