The female factor: Will the next UN leader be a woman?

In this edition, we look at how campaigning has already begun for who will replace UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon. Four out of the eight candidates who have thrown their hat into the ring are female, including former New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark.

Also we talk to Politico reporter, Eliza Collins, who's been following the highly controversial Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump.

Plus, how the forced sterilization of three hundred thousand indigenous women became a dominating issue in the Peruvian election.
