From the bestselling author of A History of Britain in 21 Women
The history of the world is the history of great women.
Marie Curie discovered radium and revolutionised medical science. Empress Cixi transformed China. Frida Kahlo turned an unflinching eye on life and death. Anna Politkovskaya dared to speak truth to power, no matter the cost. Their names should be shouted from the rooftops.
And that is exactly what Jenni Murray is here to do.
