There was a time, not so very long ago, when there would be men-only advertisements for jobs and there was such a thing as a ‘women’s rate’ of pay. In those times, women could not sign for a mortgage and women MPs were a tiny minority.
Things may be better now but can women relax?
Britain’s longest-serving female MP Harriet Harman thinks not. In her new book, published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the vote for women, A Woman’s Work, she looks at her own life to help her see how far we have come and where we should go next, arguing that it is all right to be grateful but not complacent.
