Britain has been defined by its conflicts, its conquests – and its men. Today, Dame Jenni – who will next year mark three decades of hosting Woman’s Hour – presents A History of Britain in 21 Women. The varied figures she chooses include Boudicca, Jane Austen, Emmeline Pankhurst, Mary Seattle, Margaret Thatcher, Nicola Sturgeon and Mary Quant. A chance to hear from one of our most respected broadcasters and writers.
