Why more women are paying for lip service - The Science Show - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
More girls and young women are undergoing labiaplasty. Gemma Sharp hopes to find out why.
It’s described as the Barbie doll look, a pre-pubescent look. Shaven pubic hair, and surgery to reduce the size of the labia. But it’s only popular amongst girls and young women from some western cultures. For others, the reverse is desirable. Gemma Sharp is investigating the social and cultural influences driving girls and women to seek out labiaplasty. Gemma hopes to speak to more women who have undertaken surgery, and those considering surgery.

In Defeat We’ll Always Try: the death of the Fitzroy Lions - Hindsight - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
This is a story all about the game, and the hardcore business, of the code once known as Aussie Rules. It may have slipped from public memory, but it remains a bitter pill in the hearts of some followers of one football team. In 2011, the AFL signed a $1.25 billion television rights deal—so it’s hard to imagine that, a little over a decade ago, a debt of a few million dollars was enough to send one of Australian football’s foundation clubs under. But that’s what happened to the Fitzroy Football Club.
In the early days of the Victorian Football League, Fitzroy was king of the code—they were known as the Maroons, and in the early decades of the 20th century, they won seven premierships. Between the wars, they came to be known as the Gorillas, and in 1944, they snatched another premiership.
But since that last wartime victory, Fitzroy’s prowess began to dwindle—and even with the moniker ‘the Lions’, they finally became known as the ‘lovable losers’.
And so it was, in 1996, that the Lions of Fitzroy were no more. In their wake, a new football team emerged, up in the steamy northern city of Brisbane.
This story charts the events of that year, which involve debt, treachery, betrayal and cold hearted business pragmatism. One-eyed Fitzroy fan Jack Kerr documents the demise of Fitzroy, and the rise of the Brisbane Lions.
The program features passionate fans and veteran players, as well those inside the club, whose fight to keep Fitzroy alive is embodied in the team’s old anthem ‘In Defeat We’ll Always Try’.
