Jenni Murray
A History of Britain in 21 Women

Writer and leading light of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour Jenni Murray presents the 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. From suffragette pioneers and unrecognised visionaries to great artists and trailblazing politicians, the lives of her subjects embodied hope and change, and still have the power to inspire us today. In conversation with Anna Whitelock, historian, broadcaster and author of Elizabeth’s Bedfellows.
