Is body hair still a feminist issue? Academic and author Emer O'Toole believes it is. She joins Jenni to talk hairy armpits and bending gender stereotypes. In the 1929 general election women voted on the same terms as men for the first time and their vote was dubbed "the flapper vote". Gaby Hinsliff and Dr Rosie Campbell discuss how political parties have categorised women to target their votes. Poet and novelist Elaine Feinstein talks about female poets and maintaining a love for writing alongside family life; and on the 10th birthday of Grazia magazine why younger women no longer want to have it all.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
