On Wednesday, Theresa May stepped into 10 Downing Street as the new Prime Minister of the UK. She is the second woman in the history of the UK to take up the role, a reflection of the under-representation of women in this country.

Mrs May is one of a number of women reaching the summit of the political world at the moment, like Nicola Sturgeon in Scotland, Hillary Clinton in the US and Angela Merkel in Germany. Is this a sign of hope of a more equal future for women in politics?

I spoke with ITV Wales's political correspondent, Owain Phillips, and some sixth form students from Cardiff to get their expectations of the new Prime Minister.
