Bloody Brilliant Women is the new book from journalist Cathy Newman, a freewheeling feminist history of Britain exploring 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 onwards. Join Cathy as she talks about these uncompromising women who refused to be bowed by tradition, or their generation’s hostile, entrenched views about gender.

A celebration of the women who paved the way from the 1918 Representation of the People Act through to Thatcher’s 1990 ousting from Downing Street, Bloody Brilliant Women seeks to restore these pioneering women to their rightful place in British history.

Cathy is one of Channel 4 News’ main studio presenters and also presents other Channel 4 programmes including the recent Alternative Election Night.

Chaired by Dr Eleanor Spencer-Regan, Durham University
