Joan Smith's Misogynies, what has changed in 25 years?

With Jenni Murray. In 1989, Joan Smith's book Misogynies caused controversey by arguing there was sexism everywhere, from our courts to our cinemas. 25 years on, what has changed?

It's been 25 years since the first publication of Joan Smith's book Misogynies. In 1989, this collection of essays created shock waves with its analyses of everything from Page 3, violence in films, women in the clergy and the bungled Yorkshire Ripper murder investigation. But how much have things really moved on in the past quarter century? Jenni talks to crime writer Val McDermid about the culture Misogynies sprang from and to Alex Clark about current feminist literature. Martin Daubney and Dr Claire Hardaker discuss the impact that online pornography and trolling have on society and we talk to a group of men about joining the fight against misogyny.

Woman's Hour tackles issues and tests solutions in Woman's Lab. This edition looks at body image, exploring how women can become less judgemental about their bodies.

Woman's Lab: where Woman's Hour tackles issues and test solutions. Today, its body image. Presenters Gemma Cairney, Gia Milinovich and Michelle Dewberry take up the challenge over three days on the beaches of sunny Margate. They explore some practical ways to help us be less judgemental about what we see in the mirror. They meet real women, businesses, diet and fitness industry professionals and body experts. Can they finally crack how we can be happier with our bodies? Gemma Cairney goes on a bohemian adventure, inspired by taking her clothes off in a life drawing class. She tries to convince the women of Margate to do the same. Gia Milinovich's scientific research takes her on a journey through muscle gyms, bum toning machines and mindfulness. Apprentice winner Michelle Dewberry struggles with a challenge that's not about making money, but spurred on by her own emotional relationship with her body, she creates a piece of installation art.

Victorian gang violence, Men-only spaces, Higher maternity pay benefits

45 minutes Available for over a year First broadcast:

Violence in women's gangs in Victorian times on stage.

The musical telling the violent story of women's gangs in Victorian times.

Oranges and Elephants, a new all-female musical, opens tonight in London's East End. It tells the story of the violence among women's gangs in Victorian times. Writer, Lil Warren and actor Liz Kitchen who plays the leader of the Elephants explain their fascination with this little know element of Victorian life.

Calls for an end to male-only business events have followed allegations that hostesses were groped at The Presidents Club fundraiser. One government minister tweeted that he would never again attend a men-only function. But do proposed bans suggest that men can't be trusted on their own or are unable to set their own moral compass? Journalists Mark Rice-Oxley and Martin Daubney discuss the future of male-only spaces.

A new study suggests that women who get generous maternity pay are more likely to not only return to the workplace but to rise through the ranks. The research was carried out among academics so how far does it translate to the wider female workforce? To discuss her findings Vera Troeger, Professor of Economics at the University of Warwick and Rosalind Bragg, director of Maternity Action, an advice agency campaigning to protect and enhance maternity rights.

If you are exhausted, harried, over-committed and short on ideas on how to cut back Australian broadcaster and author Meshel Laurie might have the answer for you. Among her solutions, the former workaholic uses teachings from Buddhism to see herself more clearly, give herself room to breathe and find out what kind of life she really wants to live, believing that Buddhism is as relevant and practical in our modern world as it has ever been.
