Talking to yourself, Tyne Daly, Huge age gaps between siblings
How often do you imagine yourself winning an argument or perhaps even an Oscar? Woman's Hour explores how we talk to ourselves.
Brexit might have an impact on women's rights in the workplace. We speak to the Chief Executive of the Fawcett Society which is launching a review today of the UK's sex discrimination laws.
What is it like growing up with siblings who are much older or much younger than you? And what is it like to parent children with a huge age gap between them?
We explore how we talk to ourselves. How often do you imagine yourself winning an argument, perhaps even an Oscar, or in the case of one woman, being interviewed by Jane Garvey on Woman's Hour. Do you sometimes talk out loud or does it all take place in your head? What are we doing? Does it serve a useful purpose or is it downright worrying? Jane speaks to Molly Andrews, Co-director of the Centre for Narrative Research, Professor of Political Psychology at the University of East London and author of Narrative Imagination and Everyday Life.
If you celebrated your 70th birthday in 2016 you are in good company as you shared it not only with Woman's Hour but also with Dolly Parton, Janet Street-Porter, Felicity Kendal and Cagney and Lacey star, Tyne Daly. Jane caught up with Tyne on the phone from LA and asked her what it felt like to become 70.
Are expectant mothers really going to be called pregnant people in the future? Stephanie Davies-Arai, founder of the Transgender Trend website, joins Jane.
