A History of Britain in 21 Women

The history of Britain, as you’ve never heard it before.

Britain has been defined by its conflicts, its conquests, its men and its monarchs. To say that it’s high time that it was defined by its women falls some way short of an understatement.

In this personal selection, broadcaster and writer Jenni Murray draws together the lives of twenty-one women to shed light upon a variety of social, political, religious and cultural aspects of British history.

Jenni Murray is well known as a presenter on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour. She also regularly contributes to various newspapers and magazines, and is the author of several books, including Memoirs of a Not So Dutiful Daughter.
