March 11th, 2015

Episode 167 of 725 episodes

#Bringbackourgirls was a huge social media campaign in 2014 - but most of the Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram are still missing. Activist Oby Ezekwesili explains why she hasn't given up hope. We discuss how to be a good daughter to your mother before it's too late, with the authors of Daughterhood. We also explore father-daughter relationships in two of Shakespeare's most famous plays - Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. In the last of our series on the efforts of the main political parties in Great Britain to get more women to stand for election, we focus on the SNP and hear from three of their female candidates.
