Consent classes, Wonder Woman, Period positive
How can we teach our children about sexual consent? What's the best age to start talking to them about it? Jane discusses with Deana Puccio, who teaches consent workshops in schools, and Rachel Fitzsimmons, a sex and relationship specialist.
Wonder Woman is the world's most iconic female superhero and after this summer's blockbuster hit is now the star of one of the most profitable films of 2017. But how much do we really know about Wonder Woman's real life creators? A new film, 'Professor Marston and the Wonder Women', by Angela Robinson seeks to tell their story. The American director and screenwriter joins Jane.
Why are girls still too embarrassed to talk about their periods? The activist Chella Quint is on a mission to make Sheffield 'period positive' in the hope more cities will follow suit and banish the taboo. Chella joins Jane to discuss her plans.
Protest poetry and songs have long been a constant of popular politics because everybody can join in but not many are written by women. Ahead of her talk at the Festival of Politics at the Scottish Parliament on Friday 20th September, Professor Kirstie Blair joins Jane to discuss her research into this area and why there may be more women involved than we think.
