We hear from the activist, Oby Ezekwesili, who started the #BringBackOurGirls campaign who explains why she refuses to give up and believes all girls have the right to an education.

Ahead of Mothering Sunday we look at "The Daughterhood," a group aimed at helping women improve their relationship with their mum or at least accept the one they currently have.

Julie Andrews reflects on her award winning career - 50 years after the release of The Sound of Music.
