Minna Salami is a badass writer, social critic and founder of the pan-African feminist blog, MsAfropolitan. She’s also been named as one of the Top 12 Most Influential Women in the World! In this Badass Women's Hour Extra Bits, Minna chats to Harriet, Natalie and Emma about how her experiences have helped shape her inspiring work, including growing up in a patriarchal Nigeria. Minna also talks about the important issues that she’s tackling with MsAfropolitan and how's she’s getting on with her debut book.

In the news, your hosts Harriet, Natalie and Emma are joined by researcher Professor Elizabeth Pike, who has worked on a recent study into gender-based violence in sport; they also (of course!) talk about Boris Johnson and his views on the Burka and finally, the trio ask - does what we weigh actually matter?
