Gina Miller on why we all need to stand up for what we believe in. Why does female rage make so many people feel uncomfortable? And managing jobs, school and childcare.

Gina Miller, an investment manager and philanthropist became a leading figure in the anti-Brexit movement after she successfully challenged the UK government's authority to trigger Article 50 without parliamentary approval. She joins Jane to talk about why she did what she did, her belief in how one person really can make a difference and the impact her actions have had on her.

As the new school year starts and children return to school how do parents manage jobs, school and childcare?

The gender pay gap, everyday sexism and harassment, discrimination at work - women have a number of reasons to be angry. So why is female rage something that makes so many people uncomfortable?

And the writer and broadcaster Sali Hughes has been talking to women about objects in their lives that are important to them. Today author Nadia Shireen talks about one very special teddy bear.
