A History of the World in 21 Women

In the sequel to her bestselling book A History of Britain in 21 Women, journalist and broadcaster Jenni Murray celebrates great women from around the world – rescuing some from obscurity and shining a new light on familiar names.

Those who led while others followed. Those who stood up and spoke out when no one else would. Those who broke the mould in art, journalism and politics. They each fought, in their own way, for change.

This promises to be a unique, personal, lively and accessible history from the Radio 4 presenter and national treasure.

Speakers: Jenni Murray

Duration: 1 hour
