Presented by Jane Garvey. Jane Ashley on photographing her mum Laura's iconic clothes. How do we view women who leave their children? Male rape in prison; music from Lucinda Belle.
How do we view women who leave their children? We talk to two authors who've written about it. Jane Ashley, one of Laura Ashley's daughters, worked for Laura Ashley for twelve years from the age of 18, helping to create their iconic image through her photographs. She talks about her new exhibition, the early days with Laura Ashley, and her current work for the Laura Ashley Foundation. British jails are failing to investigate serious allegations of male rape according to Stephen Shaw, the prisons' ombudsman - we discuss the issue with two experts and hear from the mum of a man who claims he was raped whilst in jail. And you can hear the music of the jazz harpist Lucinda Belle.
