Christiane Sanderson, a psychologist treating survivors of child sex abuse, and Donald Findlater, from the child protection agency the Lucy Faithfull Foundation, join Emily Maitlis to talk about women paedophiles, how common they are and what drives them.

It follows the admission by two women that they were involved in the sexual abuse of children at a Plymouth nursery.
