Weekend Woman's Hour: Paying for Sex
Should paying for sex be criminalised? There are proposals to change the laws on prostitution for the first time in twenty years. We hear from a former prostitute in favour of fining or jailing people who buy sex and from sex workers who argue that making it an criminal offence won't stop prostitution, but will make it more dangerous for the people involved.
As we begin the search for the ten women who should be on this year's Woman's Hour Power List 2014 Game Changers, we ask; how do you recognise a Game Changer, how do they operate and what are they like to manage?
Flora Thompson's Lark Rise to Candleford is one of the defining accounts of country life during the Victorian era, not to mention the inspiration for a hit television series. But why do we know so little about her?
What's it like to look for work in this competitive job market when you're a woman of a certain age?
Plus a team of girls in North London have become champions in robotics - what impact has it had on their ambitions?
And as the weather turns warmer what colour coats should we be wearing for Spring.
