Daisy Lowe on the joys of wearing gingham, Science and gender, One woman's bucket list for her dog.
You can't look in the shops at the moment without stumbling across a wall of gingham tops, dresses and trousers. The chequered pattern, which probably evokes strong memories of school uniforms, has become a must wear for summer 2017. Jenni speaks to Jennifer Daley, a lecturer of Fashion History at the New York University in London to find out how the print originated in Asia and to model Daisy Lowe(a self-confessed gingham fan.
A pilot scheme allowing pre-recorded testimony in Court from children and vulnerable women has been a success and now courts in Liverpool, Leeds and Kingston are going to trial it among adult alleged victims. Rachel Krys co-director of End Violence Against Women
and Angela Rafferty QC Vice Chair of the Criminal Bar Association discuss.
Author Lauren Fern Watt will be talking about how when her dog Gizelle was diagnosed with bone cancer she set about ticking off everything on her bucket-list from going to the beach, watching people in Time Square New York to taking a canoe trip.
Cordelia Fine, Professor of the History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Melbourne, has long questioned the dictates of science in defining gender. In her latest book "Testosterone Rex: unmaking the myths of our gendered minds" She joins Jenni to discuss how much traditional gender traits are socially constructed and how little they have to do with evolutionary biology.
