Jessie Ware, Lesley Sharp, BBC 100 Women

Singer Jessie Ware is back with a new album. Glasshouse, her third album, was conceived while she was pregnant and mostly written after her daughter was born. Her single Sam is inspired by her husband and the new addition to their lives. She joined Jenni to talk about how her new family life is influencing her music.

Lesley Sharp joins Jane to talk about playing the monstrous and vulnerable Irina Arkadina in a new version of Chekhov's masterpiece The Seagull. With her previous roles including one half of detective duo Scott & Bailey and DC Margaret Oliver in BBC mini-series Three Girls, is she drawn to playing gritty, defiant, survivor women?

The BBC has revealed its list of 100 inspirational and innovative women for 2017. On the list is Dr Ellie Cosgrove from University College London and Anita Ndreu a TV presenter in Nairobi. They discuss their experiences of sexual harassment on public transport and how it should be tackled.

Presenter: Jane Garvey
Producer: Sarah Hatchard.
