    Bridget Jones

    With a new Bridget Jones film on release later in the year, we ask if Bridget Jones has been a 'game changer' for modern women or are Irish Bridgets still stigmatised by being neither partnered nor parents?. Dr. Niamh Hourigan, Snr Lecturer at University College Cork joins Miriam this morning.
