Mothers and Daughters 11 March 2010
Dorothy Jones and her daughter Bronwen in the 1960's
The closest of bonds?

This Sunday is Mother's Day. Many of you contributed to Radio 4's  Mothers and Daughters, Lost and Found.  In a follow up programme, we consider the nature of the mother-daughter relationship. It can be very close or fraught with tension - or both. What do we think of the legacy of our mothers and what expectations do we have for our own daughters? What is the special nature of the bond between a mother and a daughter? Jenni looks at the extraordinary strengths and the potential problems of the relationship, hearing from many listeners (including Dorothy Jones, pictured with her daughter Bronwen) and from the novelist Olivia Lichtenstein, whose latest book is 'Things Your Mother Never Told You'; Sam Roddick, the daughter of Anita and herself the mother of a daughter; Professor Kath and Dr Sophie Woodward, sociologist mother and daughter who have just published a book together, Why Feminism Matters; the journalist Yasmeen Khan; and the psychologist Laverne Antrobus.
