A History of Britain in 21 Women

9 Feb 2017

From Boadicea to Thatcher, Jenni Murray’s book A History of Britain in 21 Women tells the stories of women who refused to succumb to the accepted laws of society, who pushed back boundaries and revolutionised our world. One of the country’s most distinguished broadcasters, Jenni is joined by writer, commentator and deputy editor of the New Statesman Helen Lewis to discuss her book and how these women’s lives might inspire a new generation.
