Jenni Murray and guests debate the new political landscape and women's role in it.

Jenni Murray and guests debate the outcome of the General Election and what it means for women at Westminster and beyond. What are the stories of the night, who are the surprise winners and losers? How well did the political parties reach out to women? In the studio Dr Michelle Harrison of the research agency TNS, Sarah Childs, Professor of Politics and Gender at the University of Bristol, and writer and comedian Viv Groskop has a view from the sofa. Jane Garvey joins us fresh from an election night count in Sunderland, while Newsnight's Political Editor Allegra Stratton has the latest morning developments.
