Equality When?

With International Women’s Day approaching on Friday 8th March, we ask how far have women come and how far is there still to go to achieve real equality?

With International Women’s Day approaching on Friday 8th March, we ask how far have women come and how far is there still to go to achieve real equality? And does the focus on equality itself somehow stop us from recognising, accepting and celebrating difference? Is the concept of a special ‘day’ for women outdated in the 21st Century?

Also on the programme, BBC Religious Affairs Correspondent Martin Bashir considers where now for the Catholic church after the end of the first Vatican summit on clerical child sex abuse and the conviction of Cardinal George Pell. Writer Guy Kennaway reveals why his 88 year-old mother asked him to buy heroin for her. And cyberpsychologist Dr Mary Aiken explains the lessons we all can learn from scare stories online.
