In its 18-year history the Mercury Prize has only been awarded to five women. Beth Orton has been nominated twice, but not yet won. She has been leading a week-long, all-women, musical residency in Manchester, due to culminate in a live show on Friday night. Beth is in the studio with one of the musicians involved, Josephine Oniyama, to talk about women in music and the equality gap they still face and performing a song live.
