On today's Woman's Hour Jane talked first to Tania Branigan and then to Xinran about women in China and domestic abuse, and the ongoing one-child policy, the theme of Xinran's new book. Crime writer, Baroness Ruth Rendell, died on Saturday, and we play an edited version of her last Woman's Hour interview from August 2014. We hear how the election campaign is progressing in Northern Ireland. And blogger Ella Woodward talks about 'clean living' and her new cookbook, 'Deliciously Ella'.
