HISTORY OF BRITAIN IN 21 WOMEN


HISTORY OF BRITAIN IN 21 WOMEN

JENNI MURRAY    Book Number: 86408    Product format: Paperback

Prejudice is faced by women every day despite the ever-growing feminist movement. The 21 women in this book rose above the low expectations of their gender - Boadicea, Queen Elizabeth I, Aphra Behn, Caroline Herschel, Fanny Burney, Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, Mary Somerville, Mary Seacole, Ada Lovelace, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, Millicent Garrett Fawcett, Emmeline Pankhurst, Ethel Smyth, Constance Markievicz, Gwen John, Nancy Astor, Barbara Castle, Margaret Thatcher, Mary Quant and Nicola Sturgeon. They were famous queens, recognised visionaries, great artists and trailblazing politicians who all pushed back boundaries and revolutionised our world. Presenter of BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour Jenni Murray is astounded that she 'could have studied French and Drama for three years without anyone mentioning that Aphra Behn was the first woman to earn her living writing plays, or that Simone de Beauvoir had written every bit as powerfully as her lover Jean-Paul Sartre.' The defiant spirit of these ground-breaking heroines has the power to inspire us to this day. 277pp in paperback.
