The Royal College of Midwives has said there is a shortage of 5,000 midwives in England which is affecting antenatal and postnatal care - is it time for compulsory national minimum staffing levels?
As the website of the Feminist Times launches, we look at whether there's a gap in the market for a feminist publication or if feminism is amply covered by the mainstream women's glossies.
French journalist Annick Cojean talks about her new book based on the testimonies of the women abused by Colonel Gaddafi in Libya. We continue our look at university life - Masterchef winner Shelina Permalloo offers tips for the novice cook and creates the perfect student dish - Egg Rougaille. And Marry Waterson and Eliza Carthy, members of the renowned Waterson folk music dynasty, will be performing live and talking about a classic 'lost' family album called 'Bright Phoebus'.
Presented by Jenni Murray
Producer Ruth Watts.
