Publisher's Summary

Why does the political representation of women matter? And which hurdles - personal, political and societal - have been faced, fought and sometimes overcome in the past 30 years?

From campaigning with small children to increasing the number of women in Parliament, bringing women's issues to the heart of the Labour Party and tackling a parliamentary culture with no consideration for family life, this frank, inspiring and politically charged audiobook is a crucial account of the progress (and occasional setbacks) made in fighting to change the Labour Party, UK politics and the way the country has been governed since the 1970s.

    "Gratifying."

    One of the most underrated modern politicians. A fascinating memoir to be read with a new notebook and pen ready.

    "This should be required reading...for men and women"

    This is a powerful book and one that should be required reading by our school children to understand how things have changed and how much further there is to go.

    I was particularly struck by the answers school children give when asked about the effect having a baby will have on the mother and father's career. The mismatch in responses is startling and reflects those of the middle aged now. I see the workplace having changed beyond recognition in terms of accommodating caring responsibilities (I work for a very progressive company and understand my company's flexibility is not universal) and it is in stark contrast to the misogyny and denigration of women I see within the homes and relationships of some of my contemporaries.

    I have learnt a lot about resilience from listening to the stories in this book, that we should all be more vocal and prepared to argue even if it means taking flack. I think we owe it to women like Harriet Harman to do so.

    Thank you, Harriet Harman for writing this book. It would have been a tragedy for women and the women's movement if you hadn't.

    Story
    "Remarkable book by a remarkable woman"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this lively, passionate and honest autobiography. It was particularly brilliantly narrated by the author which made it even more engaging. I learnt such a lot about the way society has changed and how things we take for granted today were made possible. It was very refreshing to hear the facts behind the headlines.
