Summary

Why does the political representation of women matter? And which hurdles - personal, political and societal - have been faced, fought and sometimes overcome in the past 30 years?
From campaigning with small children to increasing the number of women in Parliament, bringing women's issues to the heart of the Labour Party and tackling a parliamentary culture with no consideration for family life, this frank, inspiring and politically charged audiobook is a crucial account of the progress (and occasional setbacks) made in fighting to change the Labour Party, UK politics and the way the country has been governed since the 1970s.

A real revelation about Politics and the Women’s Movement

A really well written book and kudos to Harriet for narrating it herself. I have been vaguely aware of Harriet Harman in politics and had certainly been aware she had stepped up to lead the Labour Party twice in the face of general election defeats when Leaders had ‘abandoned ship’ having failed to win. That said, I had no real understanding of the work she, and many other women, had done to improve the lives of women and minorities in this country. A fabulous account of the shifting times of the last 40 years and the fortunes of the women who lived in them.

If you’re one of those men claiming to be a feminist, you should read this to understand what that really looks like. If you’re a woman, you should read this so that you know, while there’s still much work to do, this amazing woman, with her impressive determination, resilience and tenacity, is one of the reasons your life is much better now than it would have been 20 or even 10 years ago.
