Jenni Murray: A History of Britain in 21 Women

Gala Theatre Studio

08.10.17

Part of the Durham Book Festival

4pm - 5pm

 

Woman’s Hour presenter Dame Jenni Murray offers a history of Britain, as it’s never been told before.

Boadicea battled the Romans. Nancy Astor fought in Parliament. Emmeline Pankhurst campaigned for female suffrage. And Mary Quant revolutionised the fashion industry.

Jenni’s fascinating new book tells the stories of 21 women whose lives embodied hope and change. Here, their compelling stories can inspire us again and lead the way for a new generation.

Chaired by Professor Jo Fox, Durham University
