Details

The inimitable Jenni Murray celebrates great women from around the world – rescuing some from obscurity and shining a new light on familiar names. She has met and interviewed many of the women featured.

They led while others followed. They stood up and spoke out when no one else would. They broke the mould in art, music and literature. Each of them fought, in their own way, for change.

Encompassing artists, politicians, activists, reporters and heads of state from past and present, A History of the World in 21 Women celebrates the lives, struggles and achievements of women who have had a profound impact on the shaping of our world.

Jenni Murray has been at the helm of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour for over twenty years. She talks about the programme’s 64 year history and her most engaging and most terrifying interviewees from Barbara Castle to Kaffe Fasset, Monica Lewinsky to Tom Hanks, Jack Nicholson to Margaret Thatcher, through to Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.
