Men Who Pay for Sex; Grace Dent

Listen in pop-out player

Three men who use prostitutes tell us why they do it. Fiona MacTaggart MP and Jean Urquhart MSP discuss the political debate surrounding buying and selling sex - what, if anything, should be illegal?

Messy bedrooms, friendship bracelets and Grease sing-alongs. The writer and comedian Grace Dent looks back on her childhood and gives a Guide to Growing Up a Girl. She'll be reminiscing about being a brownie, learning to swim in pyjamas and wanting to snog a boy.

The author Shereen El Feki on the ever changing attitudes towards sex in the Arab world.

Why women are more likely to take sick leave than men. Clare Bambra from Durham University and Helen O'Brien, a specialist in Human Resources, discuss.

It's Shakespeare Week and the Royal Shakespeare Company tours schools with The Taming of the Shrew with Kate being played by a man and Petruchio by a woman. So what difference will it make to teenagers' understanding of the play?

Plus as music in the workplace becomes more popular you can get a chance to hear the Woman's Hour team exercise their vocal cords. And why ought men to be better dancers than women?
