The inimitable Jenni Murray celebrates great women from around the world - rescuing some from obscurity and shining a new light on familiar names.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.
Jenni Murray is a journalist and broadcaster who has presented BBC Radio 4's 'Woman's Hour' since 1987. She is the author of several books including 'A History of Britain in 21 Women' and 'Memoirs of a Not So Dutiful Daughter'.
