Synopsis

Women's Stories from History by Ben Hubbard, Charlotte Guillain, Andrew Langley, Cath Senker

These are the stories of female trailblazers who fought for and won many of the rights we take for granted today. They protested against the harsh working conditions of the Industrial Revolution and struggled for the right to vote. They stepped forward to take on jobs previously seen as men-only in World War II and stood up for equal rights and equal pay in the 1960s. They helped change society's image of women forever.
