What does peer research reveal about the lives of sex workers? Plus Aditi Mangaldas.

Programme that offers a female perspective on the world. What does peer research reveal about the lives of sex workers? Plus Aditi Mangaldas and Khalida Popal.

Some say Aditi Mangaldas is to Kathak what Margot Fonteyn and Sylvie Guillem are to Ballet. The Indian choreographer, dancer and founder of Aditi Mangaldas Dance Company discusses her new show, Inter_rupted, working with the aging body, and her experience of bringing a woman's voice into the heart of this classical dance form.

In Durham and Darlington sex workers have become researchers - using their experiences to reveal more about 'hidden' sex work and sexual exploitation. The innovative new peer led research was used by the charity Changing Lives. Jenni is joined by Laura Seebohm, its director, and by Durham Police & Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg, who commissioned the research, and by Laura Watson from the English Collective of Prostitutes.

Khalida Popal made history by becoming the first captain of the Afghan Women's National Football team in 2007. Using her public position to raise awareness about women's rights issues, at 23, she fled the country after receiving death threats. She talks about remaining an iconic figure for women's football in Afghanistan.

Hundreds of thousands of black GIs were stationed across the UK during WW2. Many had relationships with local women and some had children but, due to US laws at the time, they were usually refused permission to marry. Professor Lucy Bland of Anglia Ruskin University hopes to shed light on an under-reported chapter of 20th century social history. Joining the discussion is Dr Deborah Prior, who was one of those babies.

And as part of our series 'Becoming a Mother: A Hot Cup of Tea with Hollie McNish'. Hollie sits down with friend and fellow poet Luke Wright to discuss parental guilt and being the only dad at Rhyme Time.

Emma Hatton on taking on the role of Eva Peron in Evita.

Emma Hatton on taking on the role of Eva Peron in Evita. Operation Sanctuary in Newcastle - we speak to the two women at the forefront of the investigation into sexual grooming.

The musical Evita has returned to London's West End. The production marks the 65th anniversary of the death of Eva Perón. The actor and singer Emma Hatton talks to Jenni about what it's like to take on such an iconic role, and she performs one of the shows best known numbers live in the studio.

Eighteen people have been convicted of abusing young women and girls in Newcastle as a result of a two year investigation by Northumbria Police. Operation Sanctuary began with just one complaint, but revealed an extensive grooming network- similar to those found in Rochdale and Rotherham. We speak to two women at the forefront of the investigation: Detective Chief Inspector Claire Wheatley and Director of the Changing Lives charity Laura Seebohm.

We delve in to the Woman's Hour archive. In 1955 Monica Sims interviews Muriel Easter about her visual impairment.

New research conducted in the UK, Canada, France, the Netherlands and Germany challenges the 'simplistic' notion that women and girls become 'Jihadi brides' after being brainwashed and manipulated. Emily Winterbotham and Elizabeth Pearson, both academics based at RUSI, the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, unpick what they say is a misleading narrative.

Continuing our series on unworn wedding dresses, Emily Thomas talks to Jessica from Larbet in Scotland.
