Lorrie Moore; Lynn Forester de Rothschild; Incontinence
Jane Garvey talks to Lynn Forester de Rothschild about why she thinks you can tackle inequality and keep shareholders happy at the same time.
Lorrie Moore discusses her latest collection of short stories - Bark.
Three quarters of women have never sought help for urinary incontinence - we discuss what can be done about it.
And, we look at what the results of the 2014 European and Local Elections will mean for women.
Women And The 2014 Elections
With European and local elections taking place across much of England last week, we hear how women fared, what is changing and what the results might mean. Jane talks to Drude Dahlerup, professor of political science at Stockholm University and Polly Trenow, senior policy and campaigns officer for the Fawcett Society.
Incontinence After Childbirth
The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) and the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) have launched a joint initiative to prevent and reduce incontinence among women following pregnancy and birth. One in two women responding to a recent survey by Netmums said they had never spoken to anyone about their problem. Six in ten women felt the subject was taboo and three quarters of women said they had never sought help from a health professional for the easily-treatable condition. So why aren’t women seeking help? How much is this to do with embarrassment, shame or just plain ignorance? And what can be done to improve the situation? Jane is joined by Jo and Aimee, both of whom have experienced problems with leaking urine and by physiotherapist Katie Mann, clinical specialist physiotherapist in the North West.
