Amma Asante, Lady Justice Hallett, Do nurseries benefit pre-school children?
The director of A United Kingdom, Amma Asante, joins Jane Garvey.
Lady Justice Hallett on her legal career and taking part in The Trial of Hamlet, a project designed to encourage young people, particularly girls, to consider law as a profession.
Sending pre-school age children to nursery instead of keeping them at home could benefit them, according to new research from Oxford University and the London School of Economics. The findings are based on data from the German Social-Economic Household survey. Dr Laurence Roope co-author of the report and Dr Denise Hawkes, programme leader at the Institute of Education, University College of London discuss.
To mark the programme's 70th anniversary, The Woman's Hour Power List 2016 is looking at the women who have made the biggest impact on women's lives in seven decades. Today the Everyday Sexism founder Laura Bates and Historian Helen McCarthy look at the men who have had the biggest impact on women's lives over the last 70 years.
The director Amma Asante talks about her new film A United Kingdom.
