Episode 232 of 985 episodes

We launch the 2015 Woman’s Hour Power List who are the 10 women who have the greatest influence on the way we live? Is bad parenting to blame for naughty children or an undiagnosed medical condition? Naz Shah is a mother of three born and raised in Bradford and now the Labour MP for Bradford West having ousted George Galloway by 11 thousand votes. She talks about her triumph following a bitter and controversial campaign. We hear from the screenwriter Tess Morris and actress Lake Bell about the new film Man Up. In September 1944, three women arrived in Auschwitz concentration camp each 2 months pregnant. They all gave birth in appalling circumstances. The three surviving children tell their stories and how the ‘babies’ met sixty five years later. Best selling children’s author Liz Kessler talks about her latest book involving a teenager coming out. And the actress Emily Watson discusses her latest film role playing the mother of the Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret.
