What will the outcome of the Turkish Election mean for women? Women over 55 make the best bosses according to a recent report from the International Labour Organisation. Why? We look at how some companies are finding ways to challenge the glass ceiling: an obstacle for many women in business and management. Soprano Anna Devin who has battled with severe dyslexia since she was young, talks about 'learning the right way for your brain' and how music can help. Eliza Kennedy, on her debut author 'I Take You'. Just how did she balance writing a funny novel about a free-spirited woman with more serious questions about monogamy, female sexuality and realities of happily-ever after. And a look ahead to England's first match in the World Cup in Canada. Presented by Jane Garvey Producer Beverley Purcell.
