Liv Little, the woman behind @galdemzine - a magazine collective run by women of colour.

As Moray Women's Aid in Scotland is disaffiliated from the Scottish Women's Aid network after they discovered the group had a man on its board - an appointment which does not comply with their rules - we ask; Should domestic violence organisations be solely run by women?

This year's Power List will celebrate seven women who've made the biggest impact on women's lives over the past seven decades. Today we're talking about who should be included from health with Susan Bewley, professor of women's health at King's College London, and from science, with Sunetra Gupta, Professor of Theoretical Epidemiology at the University of Oxford.

Elizabeth Woodcraft talks about her new novel Beyond the Beehive which focuses on female friendships and being a mod in the '60s.
