Woman's Hour - 22/10/2010


Presented by Jenni Murray. We ask if breast cancer charities are spending too much time focussing on cure, rather than prevention. Plus, women working together. On 'The Apprentice', the women's team were told off by the business woman Karen Brady when they descended into a slanging match after losing their task. She said they were setting a bad example for women everywhere. Was she right? The writer Jeanette Winterson delivers the inaugural Manchester Sermon at the city's Cathedral as part of the Manchester Literature Festival. So what is a sermon - and why have women, for so long, been excluded from giving them? Jenni is joined by the Anglican priest Angela Tilby and by the Methodist minister Joanne Archer-Siddall. And - Jenny Nimmo is one of the country's best loved children's authors; her 'Charlie Bone' stories have been read by thousands of youngsters. For the first time she has teamed up with her daughter Gwen Milward, who is an illustrator. So what's it like working with your mother?
