The Power List: Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell
Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell is a leading neuroscientist and Vice Chancellor of the University of Manchester. Earlier this year she was named by Woman’s Hour as one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK. She joins Jenni to explain why she thinks confidence is the key to reaching the top of your game.
The Economics of Childcare (pt 5)
In Europe, government subsidies mean parents spend only an average of 13% of their salary on childcare (5% in Sweden); in the UK it is 27%. The average cost of childcare for each baby under two in the UK is more than £5,000 a year, rising to £6,000 in London (£15,000 and more at the top end). But who should foot the bill for childcare? Should it be the tax payer who pays, or should parents limit the number of children to what they can afford? And, in providing financial support for parents should the only incentive be to get women back to work? Jenni is joined by Dalia Ben-Galim, associate director for family, community and work at the Institute for Public Policy Research and Lynne Burnham from Mothers At Home Matter.
