Dealing with Toddlers who won't sleep - the mother of three year old Barney has started a blog for parents who are up all hours with their little ones. Angela Merkel has suggested that Christine Lagarde [Managing Director of the IMF] should be a candidate for the post of EU President - would she be a good choice? New research has shown that 40% of women admit to putting on red lipstick to attract the attention of a male boss - what is the history of our lippy? And Youth Crime Commissioners.
Presenter: Jenni Murray

Youth Crime Commissioners
Yesterday it was reported that Kerry Boyd, the 20 year old Youth Police and Crime Commissioner for Kent, has been suspended from her post following allegations that she has had a relationship with a 50 year old married man who was an ex local councillor. Kerry was appointed to replace 17 year old Paris Brown, who resigned from her post in April last year following criticism over posts she had made on Twitter. So does this prove that young people have no place in positions of public authority, or should we be less quick to judge their mistakes and instead consider the valuable contribution they could make on matters of public policy? Jenni is joined by Bob Jones, the Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands, Tasnim Miah, a Youth Commissioner for the West Midlands, and Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, journalist for The Independent.

The history of lipstick
New research has revealed that 40% of women admit to applying red lipstick in order to attract the attention of a male boss. They believe that it will lead to promotion and a study by scientists at Manchester University last year appears to support this belief because it has been proved that men are most attracted to red lipstick over any other colour. Women have been using lipstick for thousands of years but it was with the arrival of photography and cinema that lipstick became popular across the globe. Social historian Madeleine Marsh is the author of The History of Compacts & Cosmetics. She talks to Jenni about the history of lipstick, lipstick fashions and the significance and popularity of red lipstick.
