Bloody Brilliant Women, with Cathy Newman


In this episode we’ll meet Ellen Wilkinson, Joan Clarke, Violette Szabo, Pauline Gower, and Lettice Curtis, amongst many others. Through their stories we’ll learn about women’s struggle for representation in not only Westminster, but Whitehall; the work of the few who made it inside those hallowed halls; and the women who were central to cracking the code at Bletchley Park during WWII. 'Bloody Brilliant Women: The Pioneers, Revolutionaries and Geniuses Your History Teacher Forgot to Mention' is available in paperback from Waterstones (po.st/BloodyBrilliantWomenWS) and Amazon (po.st/BloodyBrilliantWomen ), audiobook (po.st/iTunesBrilliantWomenAudio) and eBook (po.st/iTunesBrilliantWomenE) from Apple Books.
