They were famous queens, unrecognised visionaries, great artists and trailblazing politicians. They all pushed back boundaries and revolutionised our world. Jenni Murray, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and champion of women, presents a history of Britain as you’ve never seen it before.
Through the lives of twenty-one women who refused to succumb to the established laws of society, whose lives embodied hope and change, and who still have the power to inspire us today.
Jenni will be in conversation with television journalist and presenter Sue Beardsmore.
