Episode 11 of 762 episodes

Nicky Morgan joined the cabinet nearly six months ago when she became the minister for women. In July she was promoted, becoming Secretary of State for Education, while retaining the women's brief. She joins us from the Conservative Party conference. Iryna Dovgan made international headlines when she was photographed being kicked by a passer-by as she stood on a street corner with a placard round her neck that read, "She is a child killer". She was accused of being a spy for the Ukrainian army but was released when the photo of her sparked global outrage. She tells us about her terrible experience. We take a look at Cancerkin, a breast cancer charity which targets women from ethnic minority communities who often miss out on treatment. And as the film Gone Girl is released, we ask at what stage of a relationship do you reveal your true self?
