This collaboration between the University of Plymouth and Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in the UK, and Lund University and Vasamuseet in Sweden is investigating the multiple hidden connections to gender behind museum objects. These might be connections to individuals - but just as importantly, they might also be about groups of people whose name has been lost to history.

8:30 Window on the World

Until recently, health authorities in developed countries appeared to be well on the way to wiping out measles - a highly contagious disease that's one of the leading causes of vaccine-preventable deaths, particularly in children. But now measles is on the rise again, and Ukraine is worst-hit. More than 100,000 people have caught the disease since 2017, and 15 have died already this year. Tim Whewell (HYU-well) reports for the BBC World Service.
