The former first lady of France, Valerie Trierweiler gives her side of the very public break-up with President Francois Hollande. Jane hears about the campaign run by the charity, Mosac, to stop parents who've abused their children continuing to disrupt their lives even after they've been convicted. Hilary Clinton could be poised to win the White House in 2016 but the political representation of women in national and state legislatures is still very poor. Sue Carroll, Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University, gives her views. The Annotated Autobiography Pioneer Girl goes back to the original mansucripts of Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of A Little House on the Prairie . Jane talks to the editor-in-chief Nancy Tystad Koupal and to the author, Tracy Chevalier.
