We meet the women of Belarus who are taking on Europe's last dictator with the support of many of their fellow citizens. Annette Young also talks to Josina Z. Machel the daughter of Graca Machel and step-daughter of Nelson Mandela who lost the sight in her right eye after being assaulted by her then-partner. She is now passionate about changing societal attitudes towards domestic violence. Plus in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a group of bloggers are determined to challenge gender stereotypes.
