The new prime minister faces her first PMQs. Plus the campaign to protect women's rights post-Brexit.

It's the new prime minister's first PMQs, the campaign to protect women's rights post-Brexit, plus author Jane Rogers and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The new Prime Minister Theresa May faces her first PMQ's - how will she fare? Twelve women's organisations - led by the Fawcett Society - have come together to launch a campaign to fight for women's rights to be protected post-Brexit. Should step-parents be allowed to stay in a stepchild's life even after a breakup or divorce? Plus Jane Rogers talks about her latest novel, Conrad and Eleanor. And Phoebe Waller-Bridge who writes and stars in a new comedy Fleabag, for BBC 3 - available online from Thursday - reveals all about her sex-obsessed, cash-strapped and constantly inappropriate comedy creation.

Presented by Emma Barnett
Producer Beverley Purcell.
