To mark the centenary of International Women's Day, radio producer Safiya Sayed Baharun of the BBC World Service profiles three female religious leaders for a documentary, Conquering Holy Ground. Chandrika Joshi, a Hindu priest and special needs dentist based in Cardiff, is one of the three women featured.

This edition of the weekly Heart and Soul programme looks at how these women are trying to break into a traditional male domain.
