Half of all women will experience a urinary tract infection with many having repeated bouts. Jane talks to Professor James Malone-Lee about why he thinks a much more radical approach is needed to treat the condition and to Kate Middleton who suffered with a chronic condition and is now part of a campaign group to try and change the way GPs diagnose it.

Acclaimed US folk and indie rock singer and guitarist Angel Olsen talks about her music and her new album, My Woman, and performs a unique solo performance, live in the Woman's Hour studio.

Tonight BBC Four will broadcast an hour-long documentary about the founding of Virago, the women-only publisher. We hear from Harriet Spicer, one of the founders in 1973, and later it's managing director. And also from Lennie Goodings, currently at the helm, who joined in the late 70s. They'll discuss Virago's place in the Women's Liberation Movement of the 70s - and how it's kept its identity in a publishing industry dominated by big business.

In our new series we are looking at five beauty, lipstick, eyeliner, nail varnish, and mascara. Today, lipstick: originally we used berries to stain our lips but now we have numerous colours and styles to choose from. Beauty journalist, Sali Hughes and MDM Flow Founder, Florence Adepoju explain why lipstick is a beauty must have.
