Presented by Jenni Murray. Live broadcast from the Women of the World festival with an audience at London's Southbank Centre. In a week that's marked a hundred years of International Women's Day, we talk to Jyoti Mhapsekar about her work with women rag-pickers in Mumbai. In celebration of women, Kate Nash sings live and Hollie McNish gives a debut performance of a poem inspired by WOW. Essex girl Syd Moore and comedian Shaista Aziz explore myths behind female stereotypes. As one survey shows only one in five women describing themselves as feminists, we ask what's the implication for the future of feminism.
