Woman's Hour - 29/07/2009

With Jenni Murray. Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima appears in the latest advertising campaign for Givenchy without hers, girls at the autumn Prada and Balenciaga shows paraded down the catwalk without theirs; why have eyebrows gone out of fashion? Will the trend filter down to the rest of us? Author Caroline Cox and Paul Harrington, head of artistry for Bobbi Brown cosmetics, join Jenni to discuss this latest trend. Each summer tens of thousands of young Brits will fly out to destinations like Corfu, Ibiza, Rhodes and Mallorca, for sun, sea, sand and, as the cliche goes, sex. The British Foreign Office is launching a campaign to try and ensure that holiday-makers, and young women in particular, stay safe and avoid sexual assault on holiday; according to government statistics, British women are more likely to be raped in Spain or Greece than in any other country in the world. Jenni hears from some young British women on holiday on the Greek island of Zakynthos and talks to the Foreign Office minister Chris Bryant about how to get the message across to young Brits abroad. Every year up to 2000 children in the UK are diagnosed with Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip. If it is diagnosed early, the condition can be treated with a simple harness. Jenni hears from those who are concerned that too many babies are being left undiagnosed due to inadequate screening. Plus: listeners give their views on a recent item about sex in long term relationships.
