In this freewheeling, feminist history of modern Britain, Channel 4 journalist Cathy Newman explores the motivations of the women who played a crucial role in the dramatic transformations that took place in British women's lives from the mid-19th century onward. These were uncompromising women who seized - or created - opportunities for themselves and who refused to be bowed by tradition, convention, or their generation's hostile, entrenched views about gender. While a few of them are now household names, many more have faded into oblivion, their personal and collective achievements mere footnotes in the history we are told.
