Jude Kelly, Hannah Peaker and Angie Le Mar discuss the effect of lockdown on women at home

Jude Kelly is talking about raising sons, with advertising boss Karen Blackett and BBC Radio 5 Live’s Nihal Arthanayake. Is there a right way to bring up boys? Are we giving boys the tools they need to contribute to a gender-equal world? And how can we encourage them to identify damaging, learned behaviours without harming their self-esteem?
