Presented by Jenni Murray. Why do so many women not exercise? Apparently 80 per cent of women aren't exercising enough and less than 3 per cent of women play team sports. We look at the reasons behind the figures and ask what can be done? Myrrha Stanford Smith talks about winning a three book literary deal in her eighties, how are women's pay and pensions faring in the public sector and the growing popularity of Rock Choir.
