100 Women: Jeanette Winterson helps children rewrite Cinderella

UK author Jeanette Winterson has helped school children re-imagine the fairy tale Cinderella for a new generation.

As part of the BBC's 100 Women season, she visited a primary school in the Cotswolds to discuss ways in which Cinderella is sexist and then asked the children to come up with their own version.

Video journalists Kelvin Brown and Jack Slater, produced by Sarah Buckley.
