What's Woman's hour?

During WW2 Native American speakers were used as radio operators for the same reason.
Nowadays Welsh speaking nuclear physicists are very much in demand also.
Slightly OT but nonetheless interseting, Saddam Hussein's two sons both spoke with broad Yorkshire accents as their tutor was from Barnsley.

If women get a whole hour of radio a week, does that mean the rest of it is just for men?
