The Duchess of Cornwall on why she is raising awareness about domestic violence.

With Angela Eagle out of Labour's leadership challenge to Jeremy Corbyn, the party is facing a men-only battle for the top job. How do women in a party that's championed equality view its future? Former deputy leadership contender Caroline Flint MP and Labour party member and Momentum activist Beth Foster-Ogg discuss.

At eight, Matilda Lloyd found her dad's old trumpet in a cupboard and started to play it. She hasn't looked back, winning BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2014 and holding the position of Principal Trumpet in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. This weekend she makes her solo debut at the BBC Proms playing the 3rd Movement of Haydn's Trumpet Concerto.

Women in One: 'I didn't feel like I belonged there' - one woman's experience of leaving Poland and finding happiness in Yorkshire.

Tom Hiddleston has faced what's been described as Taylor Swift's 'Partner Test', where he wore a shirt which read 'I heart TS' and met all of her friends. With that in mind, Jenni asks Grazia's agony aunt Daisy Buchanan and dating expert Charly Lester what is the 'Partner Test' and why do we do it?
