Woman's Hour Power List Deliberations

Woman’s Hour has been searching for the 100 most powerful women in Britain today. Over the past couple of months Eve Pollard and her team of judges – Priti Patel MP, Val McDermid, Dawn O’Porter, Baroness Oona King and former Woman’s Hour editor, Jill Burridge have been making their decisions about who should make it on to the first Womans’s Hour Power List. Today and tomorrow we will bring you a small selection of their deliberations as they debated the relative influence of some of the women you nominated.

Laila Morse

Laila Morse has played wheeler and dealer Mo Harris in Eastenders for the past 12 years.  She might not have graced our TV screens if it wasn’t for her brother, the actor Gary Oldman who pushed her in to acting at the age of fifty. He cast her in his award winning film ‘Nil by Mouth’, a story about a family in South London burdened by violence and addiction – experiences which feature in Laila’s autobiography ‘Just a Mo’: My Story’.  Laila joins Jenni to talk about her life.

Shared Parenting Proposals & Domestic Violence

Yesterday the Children and Families Bill was published, which unveiled plans to give both parents a legal right to spend time with their child, where it is safe and in the child’s best interests.  But what happens if a partner is abusive?  How do you go about proving this, and how does it affect the decisions made by the courts on contact arrangements with children?   To discuss the issues, Jenni is joined by Emma Scott, Director of Rights of Women and by June Venters QC.
