Weekend Woman's Hour: Mel C and Girl Power; Caitlin Moran; Beverley Knight
Highlights of the Woman's Hour Takeover. What guest Editors, J.K Rowling, Dame Kelly Holmes, Naomi Alderman Baroness Doreen Lawrence and Lauren Laverne wanted us to talk about on the programme.
Does today's new wave of popular feminism owe a debt to Girl Power? Lauren Lavern catches up Caitlin Moran, the author of of How to be a Woman, the book credited with putting the fourth wave of feminism on the pop cultural radar.
Three women in Baroness Doreen Lawrence's family including herself have had to deal with the problem of fibroids - benign growths in the uterus. Why are black women three times more likely than Caucasian women to have them? What treatment is being offered and how more women can avoid hysterectomies?
J K Rowling on a subject very close to her heart Multiple Sclerosis. Her mother Anne was diagnosed with MS when she was just 35 and died 10 years later. We look at new research into the disease and try to find out why Scottish women have the greatest risk of developing the disease.
Plus writer and video game maker Naomi Alderman helped us to celebrate a game changer in science and technology - Rivka Issacson. Plus the power and the myth of shoes, the joy of juicing and an emotional performance from Beverley Knight of her song Fallen Soldier about Stephen Lawrence.
