Weekend Woman's Hour: Emma Thompson, Gabrielle, Chloé Grace Moretz

Emma Thompson on long-term relationships, Chloé Grace Moretz on gay conversion therapy and Gabrielle performs her new single.

Emma Thompson talks about her new film The Children Act, celebrating being 60, the #MeToo movement and becoming a Dame.

Chloé Grace Moretz talks about her new film The Miseducation of Cameron Post. She plays Cameron, a lesbian teenager forced to attend a gay conversion camp. She explains why she wanted to be a part of this coming-of age story and be an advocate for the LGBT community.

Women and girls detained under the Mental Health Act are taking their lives at "appalling" rates, according to a report from Agenda, the alliance for women and girls at risk. Jenni talks to their Chief Executive Katharine Sacks-Jones about what changes they would like to see put in place to protect them and Joy Hibbins who has experienced being sectioned and is the founder of the charity Suicide Crisis.

Briege Voyle's mum was killed by the British Army in Northern Ireland back in August 1971. She gives a very personal insight in to the effect her mother's death had on her family and why she is determined to find out exactly what happened on the night.
This Autumn an inquiry will open into the deaths and a film, The Ballymurphy Precedent is about to be released.

Support for Mothers Who Make is a hub for women who are mothers and wanting to start or to continue an artistic ambition while still being a hands on parent. Former circus aerialist Matilda Leyser who founded the group is joined by Naomi Lange from Bristol, who has created a theatre production in the first year of her son's life and Lucy Simm, an artist from Halifax, to find out what it takes to be a full time mum and pursue a career in the arts.

Jenni joins amateur golfer Ali Gibb on the green to discover how she hit three holes-in-one on one day.

And music from Gabrielle from her first new album for a decade.
