Earlier this week the United Nations published its flagship report into the status of women in the global economy. It painted a global picture in which women were, on average, paid less, working more and missing out on a pension. We speak to Aongus Hegarty, president of Europe, Middle East and Africa for Dell, about the steps he's taken to try and make a difference. Also, the BBC's Julia Pittam reports from Paris a year after France introduced gender equality legislation. And the women who are delaying a choice between motherhood and a career - by freezing their eggs.
