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.

Superhero: Black Panther, Nicole Stott, homelessness: Scottish women, suffragette stories.

Superhero film Black Panther, women and homelessness in Scotland, untold suffragette stories, former astronaut Nicole Stott and women's current role in so-called Islamic State.

Marvel's first black superhero film - The Black Panther - premiers in the UK today. It's already attracted a lot of attention online - both for its representation of people of colour and strong female characters. Basma Khalifa, a fashion designer, and public speaker Nicole Crentsil join Jane to discuss the cultural importance of the film, particularly for black female viewers.

A report out today is calling on the Scottish government to do more in its approach to tackling homelessness and rough sleeping. Following a year-long inquiry, the Scottish Parliament's Local Government and Communities Committee are recommending a "Housing First" approach. This housing model aims to quickly provide a home to those in need, rather than going through several levels of temporary accommodation. Jane talks to Bob Doris MSP (SNP), Convener of the Committee and Simone Smith who became homeless at 17 and was attacked whilst in temporary accommodation.

Most people have heard of Emmeline Pankhurst or Millicent Fawcett - but what about the less well known members of the suffrage movement? Who were they and what impact did they have? A new exhibition at the Museum of London pays tribute to these women. Jane Garvey meets Beverley Cook, the curator of 'Votes for Women'.

Nicole Stott is a former NASA astronaut, making her one of only 60 women to complete a space flight, compared to 500 men. She's now an ambassador for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, where she inspires the next generation, and is pursuing her long term passion in art. She joins Jane to discuss her career, painting in space, and what it's like coming back down to earth.

A new propaganda video from so called Islamic State shows women fighting on the frontline for the first time. What does this change of tactic tell us about women's role within ISIS? Elizabeth Pearson, Associate Fellow at the independent think tank, RUSI and Dr Katherine Brown, Lecturer in Islamic studies at Birmingham University join Jane.

Saoirse Ronan on her new film Lady Bird. Encouraging children to get active. Endometriosis

Oscar-nominated Saoirse Ronan on her role as a stroppy teenager in Lady Bird. How to encourage children to get active. Endometriosis. Former NASA astronaut Nicole Stott.

Saoirse Ronan is just 23 years old but has already received three Academy Award nominations, four British Academy Film Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award for her role as Christine or Lady Bird in the coming-of-age film of the same name. What it's like to have already been so widely acclaimed for her acting at such a young age?

Nicole Stott is a former NASA astronaut, making her one of only 60 women to complete a space flight, compared to 500 men. She's now an ambassador for the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida, where she inspires the next generation, and is pursuing her long term passion in art.

Lena Dunham has revealed she has had a hysterectomy after struggling to cope with endometriosis. We talk to Consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist Miss Karolina Afors about the treatments available and under what circumstances might surgery be recommended.

Propaganda from so-called Islamic State represents women fighting on the frontline for the first time. Dr Katherine Brown from the University of Birmingham and Elizabeth Pearson from the think-tank Royal United Services Institute discuss what this change of tactic might tell us about the role of women role within ISIS.

How can we encourage children to get off the sofa and take some physical exercise? Kate Dale, from the This Girl Can advertising campaign run by Sport England, and Maria Lally, Health Journalist give their top tips for getting kids active.

What does it mean to take care of yourself? Does it mean becoming super healthy, taking loads of exercise and radically altering your diet as journalist Decca Aitkenhead spent last year doing? Or is there a gentler, kinder way of giving yourself the care that you need as Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Phillips suggest in their new book, Self-Care for the Real World.

And dinosaurs on tour - challenging gender stereotypes. The Natural History Museum's Head of Conservation, Lorraine Cornish, tells us about taking the museum's much loved dinosaur, Dippy, on a UK-wide tour, and how she hopes he'll encourage more girls to get involved in science.
