Women-Friendly Mosque, Working Lives of Women

Plans for a mosque run by women in Bradford. Following in the steps of Sylvia Pankhurst. Tips for surviving the wedding season. And Shivi Ramoutar cooks the perfect buljol butties.

Plans in Bradford for a mosque to be run by women - Bana Gora and Selina Ullah tell us why they think it's necessary.

We discuss gender, race and identity with Emma Dabiri and Jane Fae. The first State of the World's Fathers Report. How close are we to the licensing of a drug to boost women's desire for sex - and should it be viewed as a great beacon of sexual equality?
In 1906 suffragette and journalist Slyvia Pankhurst made a pilgrimage through the north of England and Scotland to find out about the lives of working women. In the first of a series of features with women doing manual work today Emma Barnett goes to a pottery factory in Stoke on Trent.

Summer is here and with it the wedding season. New research says it costs an average of £640 to attend a wedding - Aleisha McCormack and Louise Harris give some survival tips. And Shivi Ramoutar Cooks the Perfect...Buljol Butties.

Presented by Emma Barnett.
