Should lower income females receive free sanitary products?

Throughout their lifetimes British women spend around £19,000 when it comes to their periods. This includes the cost of sanitary products, pain relief and underwear.

Earlier this year a pilot scheme in Aberdeen was launched to provide free sanitary products to women and girls from low income households, in a bid to tackle period poverty. But should the scheme be rolled out throughout the country?

Today we meet 18-year-old Amika George who is demanding dignity for women whose budgets are so tight, they are being forced to use socks, tissues and newspapers as an alternative. Do you think lower income females should receive free sanitary products?

No bedtime and no school! Is this every child's dream?

This week’s documentary Feral Families introduces us to three sets of parents who are raising their children under the ‘off-grid’ philosophy. But does a lack of rules make the children healthier and happier, or lead to behaviour issues?

Today we meet off-grid parents Gemma and Lewis Rawnsley, who raise their seven children without rules. Life is a long series of playtimes and picnics with the children doing whatever they like, choosing their own bedtimes and having ice creams at midnight. Gemma, Lewis and their seven children will be live in the studio.
