As Woman's Hour prepares to celebrate its 70th year we discuss how the programme came about with historians Juliet Gardiner and Kate Murphy.

Lauren Laverne and Late Night Woman's Hour explore the power of public nudity. How does it feel, what does it mean and why do women do it? Inna Shevchenko leader of FEMEN, naked stand-up comic Miss Glory Pearl, Natasha Porter who organises the World Naked Bike Ride and Shahida Bari a lecturer in Romanticism at Queen Mary University in London discuss.

Was 2015 the year transgender became mainstream? Jack Monroe, Paris Lees and journalist, Natalie McDermott talk about some of the issues.

Last year the Church of England welcomed its first female Bishops. How likely are similar developments in the Catholic Church? Christina Rees campaigner for Women Bishops, Tina Beattie Professor of Catholic Studies and Religious Affairs Correspondent Caroline Wyatt discuss.

And what is the best way to make and embrace change? We hear from Adele Tilley who will graduate in Business and Management in July and from the author of The Art of the Possible Kate Tojeiro. Show less
