Power List 2016, Teenage mums, Artemisia Gentileschi, Sheffield women

Becoming a Mother with Hollie McNish, feminists with impact, and Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi, plus reporter Abigail Hollick accosts strange women in Sheffield.

Woman's Hour's Power List 2016 will celebrate seven women who have made the biggest impact on women's lives over the past 70 years. Judges will decide who is on the list, but who should they be considering? Rosie Boycott, writer Lola Okolosie and author Natasha Walter suggest which feminists may be included.

Abigail Hollick interviews strange women she bumps into all over the UK. Here she speaks to a woman in Sheffield.

In the latest in our series 'Becoming a Mother: A Hot Cup of Tea with Hollie McNish' Hollie visits teenage mothers Chante and Damoya. Chante is 19, has a three year old son and found out she was pregnant when she was 16.

We discuss the genius of Artemisia Gentileschi in her art and her life. With Anna Reynolds, curator of paintings at the Royal Collection where Gentileschi's self-portrait will soon be displayed and Jonathan Jones, art critic for the Guardian and huge fan.

Presenter: Jenni Murray
Producer: Rebecca Myatt.
