On Boxing Day, Jane Garvey reflects on the women who've spoken out in 2017 and the issues they've been bringing to the fore. We discuss the reaction they got and if there really is a cause for celebration as we come to the end of the year.

We will hear from guests who've spoken out on this programme including, actress Anne-Marie Duff discussing sexual harassment in the film industry; model Adwoa Aboah talking about her mental health and addiction; Women's Officer at Cambridge University Lola Olufemi discussing prejudice and racism; and Gina Martin, the victim of upskirting photography who is campaigning to change sexual harassment laws.

Joining Jane, Gloria Allred, an American Women's rights lawyer notable for taking on high-profile and often controversial cases, she is currently representing some of Harvey Weinstein's alleged victims of sexual harassment. Also, transgender model and activist Munroe Bergdorf who lost her job with L'Oreal this year after speaking out about racism. Plus, Mum, Author and columnist at the Daily Telegraph, Bryony Gordon and Guardian columnist Deborah Orr. Show less
