Journalist Laura Bates on her book Everyday Sexism

Laura Bates is a journalist and the founder of the Everyday Sexism Project, a collection of more than 10,000 women's daily experiences of gender inequality.

She started the project in 2012 and by December 2013 the site had 50,000 entries, including thousands from girls under the age of 18.

Laura told BBC Breakfast why she has now written a book about the issue of routine sexism.
