Annette Young meets acclaimed US artist and writer, Alison Bechdel, whose latest book has been translated into French. They talk about the need for exercise, feminism and American politics following the demise of Roe v. Wade. We also report on how the record-breaking floods in Pakistan that have left millions homeless, have placed women in an even more vulnerable position. Plus the many facets of American war photographer, Lee Miller, who was so much more than being simply the muse for Surrealist artist, Man Ray.
