In this freewheeling history of modern Britain, Cathy Newman writes about the pioneering women who defied the odds to make careers for themselves and alter the course of modern Britain - not just in the arts or education, but in fields like medicine, politics, law, engineering and the military. Here are the stories of women such as motorbike racer and Spitfire engineer Beatrice Shilling, WWI journalist Dorothy Lawrence, and developmental biologist Anne McLaren, whose work in genetics paved the way for in vitro fertilisation.
