Pope Francis has announced he is making it easier for Catholic's to annul marriages but how much is his 'vision' making a difference to the lives of Catholic women? As part of our week long 'Women in Tech' series we hear from Rita Bourma about her role as a User Experience Designer at Net-a-porter, and Vanessa Vallely examines her 25 year career from the early days of Microsoft to running WeAreTheCity.com. Psychiatrist, Dr Linda Gask, discusses her new memoir 'The Other Side of Silence', looking at how being an expert in mental health doesn't mean you're protected from facing your own psychological problems.
