Changes to the UK Corporate Governance Code - will it make a difference to women?
Get set for a summer of sweeping hems as The Maxi Dress hits the height of fashion. Jenni learns how to carry off a Maxi with style.
The Germans have always been rather good at coming up with words to describe emotions skirting around the outer fringe of the mind - Angst, Schadenfreude, Zeitgeist - and now they've come up with Freizeitstresse, which literally translated means 'free time stress'. Researchers recently concluded that up to three quarter of German adults suffer from 'Freizeitstresse'. Are we equally bad at not switching off?
Diana de Gunzburg talks about her novel for young adults, The Moonstone Legacy - set between North Yorkshire and India, and about her own experience of growing up between Yorkshire and the North West Frontier of Pakistan.
