Catherine wrote to us about the wellness industry. She asks whether its relentless focus on improvement whether through diet, exercise or psychological tools such as mindfulness contributes to yet more pressure, particularly for women, to live the perfect life. At the age of 59 Annie is going back to university. She wants to talk about what she should wear. She's frightened of sticking out like a sore thumb amongst the other students on the course. A personal stylist and a fashion editor are on hand for advice. Listener Sarah wrote to us about her three daughters and the fact that they often receive unwanted attention on the street from teenage boys and men. Has it got worse since she was their age? Listener Joy is single and she's not alone. In the latest UK census 34 per cent of the population in England and Wales describe themselves as single. Yet swathes of society still seem to hold singletons and particularly women in judgement. We explore why.
