Weekend Woman's Hour - Coercive Control, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Surrogacy Guidance
Sarah and Annie tell their stories of coercive control and Mary Chapin Carpenter performs a song from her new album. Plus a look at new guidance on using a surrogate.
We'll hear from you about being in a relationship where you are being coercively controlled. Sarah and Annie tell their story and Jane Keeper from Refuge and Dr Marianna Tortell from the Domestic Violence Intervention programme offer some advice.
Mary Chapin Carpenter has been on the country music scene for 30 years. She performs a song from her latest album.
Schoolgirls are wearing shorts underneath their skirts to avoid 'upskirting' photos taken by other pupils. We hear from Gina Martin who is calling for upskirting to become a sexual offence and Dr Mary Bousted the Joint General Secretary of the National Education Union.
It's been a 100 years since women were given the opportunity to join the British Armed Forces we hear from Lieutenant Colonel Ami Jones MBE from the Army, Captain Ellie Ablett MBE of the Navy and Flight Sergeant Claire Bullen from the RAF.
We hear from the Former British Surfing Champion Sophie Hellyer about the objectification of female surfers.
Guidance on how to start a family using a surrogate has been published for England and Wales by the government. We discuss the advice and whether it goes far enough to protect all parties with surrogate Caroline, Natalie Smith from Surrogacy UK and Natalie Gamble a solicitor and founder of Brilliant Beginnings.
