  Women and Incapacity Benefit 22 September 2004  
How will possible changes affect women?

As the government considers the future of Incapacity Benefit, the number of women claiming it is rising.

Woman's Hour talks to one claimant about her present situation.

Lorna Reith, Chief Executive of the Disability Alliance and Kate Stanley of the Institute of Public Policy Research join Jenni to discuss the issues.
