Harriet Harman (2017 Event)
When Harriet Harman was elected in 1982, she notes in her memoir A Woman’s Work, the House of Commons was 97% male. Since then, she has led the way on all-women shortlists, introduced laws on equality and domestic violence and has twice become Labour’s Acting Leader. In this event, recorded live at the 2017 Edinburgh International Book Festival, we meet a feminist politician who has made a real difference. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
