East Dunbartonshire - The Best Place to be a Woman
What makes East Dunbartonshire the best place overall to be a woman? We hear your views about where you live and discuss how your hometown can shape your life.
We'll be discussing the best place in Britain to be a woman, hearing what's important to you about where you live and from five young women in East Dunbartonshire who tell us why they think their area came top of the research.
We'll also hear from Nancy Kelly the director of Policy Research at the National Centre for Social Research who crunched the numbers on our behalf and from Professor Susan Harkness, a social scientist, on the winners and losers of the list. And Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, former Spice Girl Geri Horner and comedian Shazia Mirza tell us how their hometown has shaped them.
We have music from the classical pianist Beatrice Rana.
And as parents get ready to pack their children off to university this weekend we hear from mother and daughter Nikki and Emily Woolf on the emotional impact of this milestone and from Lucy Tobin author of A Guide to Uni Life.
We hear from journalist and author Chris Hemmings on what it means to 'Be A Man'. The former 'lad' explores how masculine determination to be dominant not only impacts on the women and girls but also on the men and boys too.
Kate Millett whose 1970 book Sexual Politics became a keystone of second wave feminism has died at the age of 82. We discuss her legacy with crime writer Val McDermid, Ettie Bailey-King of The School's Consent Project and historian Professor Mary Beard
