Sex and the City's Kim Cattrall to guest edit Woman's Hour
Sex and The City star Kim Cattrall and Scottish entrepreneur Michelle Mone will be joining other influential women to guest edit BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour.
Woman's Hour Takeover week runs from Monday September 14 to Friday September 18.
Cattrall, who will edit the Monday edition, is set to focus on choosing a life without children. She will also discuss themes of ageing, being single later in life and loss.
OBE-holder Mone, founder of the Ultimo lingerie brand, will appear on the Thursday and will look at a range of topics, among them: barriers to employment and business opportunities in deprived areas, mentoring, how the mind, body and career are linked and the psychology of weight loss and dating in the 21st Century for over 40s.
"I absolutely love Woman's Hour and it is a real honour to be asked to be guest editor, we have four amazing topics to discuss and I can't wait to get started," she said.
Other guest editors that week include include female genital mutilation (FGM) campaigner Nimco Ali, on the Tuesday, Bishop of Gloucester Rachel Treweek on Wednesday and children's author Dame Jacqueline Wilson on Friday.
Woman's Hour editor, Alice Feinstein, said: "Last year we had a great response to our guest editors and I'm really pleased that we've been able to secure five more inspiring women who will each bring a fresh outlook and ideas to the Woman's Hour team."
"Their knowledge and expertise on a diverse range of subjects offers a starting point for discussions which we hope will resonate with our listeners."
In 2014 other guest editors included Harry Potter author JK Rowling and Olympic athlete Dame Kelly Holmes.
