Four men have been convicted of raping and murdering the 23-year-old physiotherapy student on board a bus in New Delhi last December. We examine how attitudes towards women in India have changed with the BBC Hindi's correspondent Rupa Jha.

Louise Brealey, better known as Molly in the BBC TV Series Sherlock, talks about her playwriting debut - a new version of a near mythic tale, Pope Joan.

In the last of our series on parent blogging, Hayley Goleniowska and Jennie Henley explain why they use blogs to campaign on issues that directly affect their lives.

Afghan politician and women's rights activist Fawzia Koofi tried to have the 2009 Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW) law, which was passed by presidential decree, ratified by parliament. She says this was necessary to give it a lasting legitimacy. Her efforts have backfired and now there are fears that the law may even be repealed. Heather Barr, Afghanistan researcher for Human Rights Watch explains why.

Leyla Hussein and Nimco Ali from Daughters of Eve discuss their work as anti-FGM activists and their reaction to being named as Game Changers on the Woman's Hour Power List.

Laurie Penny explains why so many women have turned to Twitter to share their experiences of harassment, fear and sexual assault under the hashtag 'YesAllWomen' as a response to the shootings by Elliot Rodger in California.

From September the national curriculum will change and all children over the age of 5 will have coding lessons at state schools. So how can teachers prevent this being seen as a 'boys' subject?

Joanna Rakoff talks about her job reading and responding to the fan mail of the world's most reclusive writer - Catcher in the Rye author J.D. Salinger.

Kate Millett, author of 'Sexual Politics', is considered of the pioneers of modern feminism, so why has she been largely forgotten?

The role of women in the French Resistance, visiting a relative with Alzheimer's, confessional journalism.

Women in the French Resistance. We discuss the vital role women played during the second World War and 94-year-old Cecile Rol-Tanguy talks about her work as an undercover activist.

When a partner or parent is in the advanced stages of dementia, is visiting them helpful or distressing? Ian Botham didn't visit his father for the last six months of his life as he found the experience too painful. He didn't want his dad's memory to be 'distorted by the illness that robbed him of himself'. But how important are visits - even when your loved one doesn't know you anymore?

Bryony Gordon, author of The Wrong Knickers, gives her take on the reality of being a single girl in your twenties. But does this type of self deprecating, confessional journalism really help? And what should be a young woman's priorities for the first 15 years of her adult life - work, finding a partner or having babies? We discuss the options.

All year round swimmer Catherine Jones remembers the two young women who were the first people to swim the Bristol Channel from Wales to England.

The Duchess of Cornwall talks about Shakespeare in schools; women on comedy TV panel shows; teaching consent; and living to over 100. Jane Garvey presents the female perspective.

The Duchess of Cornwall gives her verdict on young performers at the Shakespeare Schools Festival, which offers students from all backgrounds the opportunity to perform on their local professional stage. We discuss the benefits of performing Shakespeare for children today.

A recent proposal to make teaching consent in schools in England compulsory was rejected by the House of Lords, but campaigners argue that at a time when teenagers have easy access to porn, it is vital that they are educated about sexual relationships, consent and abuse.

The Director of BBC Television says there be at least one woman on every BBC TV Panel show. So are quotas on entertainment shows a good idea or should it be all about the quality of the talent?

Life expectancy for girls has officially broken the 100-year barrier for the first time according to Public Health England. So how should young women be preparing for their future and what might that future look like?

Major Kate Philp talks about her recent expedition to the South Pole with the charity Walking Wounded, the impact of losing her leg in Afghanistan and why she's physically as strong and fit as the men.

Vicki Wickham, music pioneer and editor of the iconic British music television show 'Ready, Steady, Go' has received an OBE for services to music. She talks about booking the Beatles, working with Dusty Springfield and bringing Motown to Britain.

The National Childbirth Trust wants the government to improve the diagnosis and treatment of tongue-tie in the UK. The parenting charity says detection is patchy and means affected babies are left unable to feed properly for weeks or even months. So should professionals routinely check for and treat tongue-tie?

Seven members of the Oxford grooming ring were jailed for a total of 95 years in June 2013 after an 18-week trial at the Old Bailey. They groomed, raped and prostituted girls as young as 11 in Oxford between 2004 and 2012. We hear from 'Lara', one of the young girls who survived that abuse and her mother, 'Elizabeth'.
