Fashion influencers, Shadeism, NSPCC

Monica Ainley and Camille Charriere are part of the new generation of fashion insiders - making a career out of blogging and Instagram. Ahead of their London Fashion Week 'takeover' of our @bbcwomanshour Instagram account we ask how it all works, find out what the rest of industry make of it and what we can expect from the Shows.

Historian Theresa Mackay talks about female innkeepers, whose 19th-century establishments in the Scottish Highlands were a mix of Airbnb, takeaway shops and the local bank.

Why do people sometimes feel they can't report suspected child abuse or neglect? We ask Louise Exton from the NSPCC what people should do if they suspect a child is in danger.

Plus almost a year since the EU reached a deal with Turkey to tackle the migrant crisis and reduce the numbers making the dangerous journey to Greece by boat to escape fighting in Syria we hear from Amina Ramadan about the hopes she and her husband shared for their future.

And we preview the World Service documentary about shadeism in the US and UK, Michelle Obama: Black Like me.
