Publisher's 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 must-read for all in favour of equality

This is an amazing and eye-opening record of the changes the women's movement has wrought for equality in the U.K. and beyond since the 1970s. There is of course still a mountain to climb but this documents some of the incredible steps forwards that have been taken. An engaging account that also brings back in to focus some of the great achievements of New Labour in the 90s which are often lost under the shadow of the war in Iraq. Highly recommend.
