Are some police forces ignoring Clare's Law? Having a good menopause. Shoes for big feet.

Are some police forces ignoring Clare's Law and failing vulnerable women? Listeners tell us about their positive experiences of the menopause. Plus shoes for women with big feet.

Clare's Law, introduced in 2014, allows people to ask the police for information about someone they know and also enables the police to warn people who they believe may be in danger. But recent research conducted by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism illustrated a large disparity across England and Wales in how police use the law to protect women from violent partners. Those asking for information about their partner's record of domestic violence are 10 times less likely to receive it from police in some parts of the country than others. Sandra Walklate Professor of Sociology at Liverpool University and Deputy Chief Constable Louisa Rolfe, the National Police Chiefs' Council's lead for domestic abuse join Jane.

Listeners tell us about their positive experiences of the menopause.

What is it like to be a woman with big feet? And why is it so often depicted as a negative thing? Caroline Stillman and Tskenya-Sarah Frazer, who have both founded their own independent plus size footwear brands, tell us what impact their size has had on their self esteem and the change they want to see in the fashion industry.

London's famous blue plaques link notable people of the past with buildings of the present. Around the capital there are around 903 plaques. Only 111 of these commemorate women. Author Allison Vale has written a book called 'A Woman Lived Here' to shine a spotlight on 56 forgotten female figures.

Latest broadcast:

Three senior police officers discuss their careers; the work of Mozart's sister Nannerl.

Three senior police officers reflect on their careers; Nannerl Mozart, sister of Wolfgang Amadeus; lawyer Ann Olivarius on fighting for women's equality; the history of red hair.

Three senior police officers reflect on their careers: what took them into policing, what are their greatest challenges and what have been the high and low moments. Jenni speaks to assistant commissioner Helen King of the Metropolitan Police responsible for Roads Policing and Criminal Justice and the lead for improving public confidence in the police and continuing to drive down crime across the city; to assistant chief constable Nikki Holland of South Wales Police with responsibility for specialist crime which includes the Joint Scientific Investigation Unit, Tarian / Regional Organised Crime Unit and Wales Extremist Counter Terrorist Unit; and to temporary deputy chief constable Louisa Rolfe of Avon and Somerset Police. Among her responsibilities are The Criminal Investigation Department, and she has led projects to raise awareness around violence against women and girls.

Nannerl Mozart was the older sister of Wolfgang Amadeus. She was a virtuoso performing alongside her brother during the family's tour of Europe. So why have we never heard of her? She was an extremely talented musician and she composed music, although none of her compositions survive. Jenni speaks to Sylvia Milo, actress and creator of the play 'The Other Mozart' and Professor John Irving, a Mozart scholar.

Leading lawyer Ann Olivarius represents women's rights in education and work. She talks about tackling sexual harassment on campus in a landmark case against Yale in 1980, and how 35 years on she's still fighting the problem in the UK today, and taking on newly emerging revenge porn cases.

Jacky Collis Harvey talks about her book which charts the chequered fortunes and meaning of red hair and redheadness across time and culture.

Sona Jobarteh plays the kora, and three senior police officers reflect on their careers.

Includes Sona Jobarteh playing the kora, three senior police officers reflecting on their careers, and Miriam Moss on how being on a hijacked plane as a teen inspired her novel.

Sona Jobarteh plays the kora. Three senior police officers reflect on their careers and how policing has changed for women over the last 25 years.

As the new school term begins we discuss pros and cons of staggered starts for four and five year olds.

How do women and men use their appearance to fit in with different social groups and situations?

Forty-five years ago the author Miriam Moss was a fifteen year old girl who was a passenger on a flight from Bahrain to London which was hijacked by the popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. She describes what happened to her and why she's decided to write a novel about it now.

Women retiring now are some of the first to have worked at a career for their whole life, so how do they cope? We look at the history of red hair which spans centuries and continents and why red hair has attracted prejudice as well as admiration.
