Rockabilly singer Imelda May; maternal depression and living with your adult children.

Imelda May peforms live; how to cope if your grown-up kids still live at home; new research that says mums can suffer depression four years after giving birth.

Dublin-born rockabilly singer Imelda May will be joining Jenni to talk about her new album and performing live in the Woman's Hour Studio.

Following the death of Maya Angelou, the American poet and author, we look back at her influence and what her legacy will be.

Why according to the latest research from Australia mothers are more likely to suffer from postnatal depression four years after giving birth. They found that 14% of women suffered depression when their child was approaching school age, despite many of them never having had previous problems. But what are its triggers and how can you tackle it.

Plus according to the Office for National Statistics, 3.3 million UK adults in their 20s and 30s now live with their parents. We ask parents about the financial and emotional costs of keeping their grown-up family under one roof and the challenges of life as a parent of the so-called boomerang generation.

Latest broadcast:

Fourth-wave feminism, introverts v extroverts and hangover cures from Allegra McEvedy.

Feminism 2013 style, introverts v extroverts, and a profile of Mrs Oliphant, the writer of our 15 Minute Drama. Plus, the perfect hangover food. Presented by Jenni Murray.

From the campaign to get Jane Austen on our bank notes to getting girls off Page 3, feminism has taken centre stage in 2013. But as it becomes more mainstream what difficulties has that highlighted and how can those be resolved in the coming year. How can the momentum of the last twelve months be maintained and what campaigns lie ahead.

If you are planning to see in the New Year with a few drinks tonight, then tomorrow could start with some of us at least feeling a bit the worse for wear. So how do you clear away those cobwebs and not least that banging head that accompanies the morning after. The chef Allegra McEvedy has the perfect food for hangovers.

Opposites attract (or so the age-old saying goes) but differing expectations during social occasions can be an issue of contention. If you're a gregarious extrovert that thrives on champagne and small-talk and your partner is a pensive introvert who'd rather snuggle up in front of the fire, how will you navigate the festivities together?

This week's 15 minute drama Hester, is based on the novel by Margaret Oliphant, better known as Mrs Oliphant. She published nearly a hundred novels and her portrayals of provincial life have been compared to the likes of George Eliot. This new dramatisation brings to life the remarkable women portrayed in her novel Hester, first published in 1883.

Produced by Steven Williams.
