On the 100th anniversary of women getting the vote, Helen Pankhurst - great-granddaughter of suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst and a leading women's rights campaigner - charts how women's lives have changed over the last century and offers a powerful and positive argument for a new way forward.
Why is it taking so long? Despite huge progress since the original suffragette campaigns and wave after wave of new feminism, women are still not equal. On the centenary of one of the greatest steps forward for women - the vote - Suffragette descendent and campaigner Helen Pankhurst takes the listener on a journey exploring how women's lives have changed over the last 100 years and how we can take things even further.
Combining historical insight with inspiring argument, Deeds not Words is essential listening for anyone who wants to know more about how far women have come since the Suffragettes, how far we still have to go and how we will get there.
