Dame Jenni Murray —
A History of Britain in 21 women

Jenni Murray’s latest book shines new light on some of the remarkable and trailblazing women whose intellect, passion and sheer determination have helped to make Britain what it is today. From warrior queen Boadicea and playwright-turned-spy, Aphra Behn, to 1960s fashion icon, Mary Quant, she celebrates the pioneering achievements of Britain’s feistiest females, from bygone centuries to the present day. Dame Jenni has met many inspirational figures as host of Woman’s Hour but her renowned passion for social justice began long before, in her Barnsley childhood. Join her to travel through time, pick up a few forgotten facts and indulge in the company of some brilliant and visionary women whose lives embodied hope and change.
