Led by Nigel Farage, the Brexit Party was formed in March of this year. In May it took 29 seats in the EU elections, more than any other party and nearly one third of all votes cast. Polls suggest the Brexit Party attracts the support of more men than women. But there are many women among the many voters who still feel strongly that the UK should fulfil the 2016 referendum result and leave with or without a deal. The Brexit party is holding a series of events as part of a national tour. Jane went to an event in Southport.The reality of searching for part time or flexible work. Just how hard is it to find good jobs - that make use of your skills and abilities - part time? We’ll be looking at new research from the flexible working consultancy Timewise, showing just how few advertised jobs there are for part time or flexible work, and asking why. We’ll also be getting advice on how to negotiate if you see your dream job advertised but at full time hours you can’t manage or don’t want - are employers likely to consider a strong candidate on fewer hours? And what can employers do to make part time or flexible work work for them?A few weeks ago we asked our listeners to get in touch and send us a picture that somehow captured them at their best. Not just looking your best, but feeling your best. Today Kelly Ford tells us about a reunion captured on camera.Historian Clare Wright on the overlooked history of the Australian suffragettes and their impact on the campaign for votes for women in Britain.Presenter: Jane Garvey Interviewed guest: Claire Fox Interviewed guest: Karen Mattison Interviewed guest: Sarah Hathaway Interviewed guest; Kelly Ford Interviewed guest: Clare Wright Producer: Lucinda Montefiore

This meant women weren’t given important treatment that might have prevented cancer or halted it. Vicky took her case to court and won. She was awarded 2.5 million Euros in compensation. Vicky is now living with a terminal prognosis but getting treatment. She says she’s feeling strong at the moment. She’s just published a book called Overcoming: A Memoir.What does it mean to be a woman in the 21st century?

Susan Sontag, the American essayist, novelist and critic rose to fame in the 1960s. She became an iconic cultural figure and during her life she was linked with figures like Andy Warhol and Annie Leibovitz. Fifteen years after her death, Benjamin Moser has written a new biography about her which digs beneath her public image. He discusses her life, her work and how her life charts the changes in women's lives over the last 60 years. It’s 30 years since the concept of intersectionality was introduced by Professor Kimberlé Crenshaw. The Women’s Budget Group, who are also marking their 30th anniversary, thought it apt to address the way feminist economics has embraced the idea that there is no single universal experience of inequality shared by all women. Next week, the Director of the group Dr Mary-Ann Stephenson will chair a panel on Intersectionality in Feminist Economics. She joins Jenni along with Dr Zubaida Haque from the Runnymede Trust and Angela Matthews from the Business Disability Forum to discuss why a one size fits all policy doesn’t work. Waad al-Kateab has documented her life on camera in war torn Aleppo, Syria. While conflict, violence, death and cruelty raged around her, she fell in love, got married and had a baby daughter. She captures stories of loss, laughter, sacrifice and survival. She joins Jenni to discuss her film, ‘For Sama’, a love letter from a young mother to her daughter. And, listener Val Dawson talks about the photograph that captures her best day.Presenter: Jenni Murray Producer: Ruth Watts

Margaret Atwood's new novel is out today. It's science fiction and is called The Testaments. Science fiction is often stereotyped as a male genre, but we forget that a woman was one of its first authors: Mary Shelley who wrote Frankenstein. When it comes to recognising science fiction talent, male authors have got many more awards than women but that's changing.

Dr Ruth Hackett from University College London explains.And our series called My Best Day. You sent us some pictures of when you looked and felt great.
