Alarm over UK women MPs stepping down after abuse

Issued on: Modified:

While Brexit has very much dominated the UK election campaign, 18 female MPs have said they will not be standing again due to a toxic political atmosphere fueled by online harassment. We talk to Professor Kalina Bontcheva who’s closely tracking the abuse British politicians, especially women, are currently facing online. Plus how a two month-long strike by Zimbabwe’s doctors and nurses is forcing women to seek out traditional midwives who often deliver babies with no sterilization or post-natal care.

Also the first ‘Space’ movie that goes to where nobody has gone before; the cinematic tale of a single mother who also happens to be an astronaut.
