Swim When You're Winning

Less than 100 years ago women didn’t have the same right to swim as men and could be arrested for taking the plunge until the 1930s. Jenny Landreth’s joyful book Swell, shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2017, charmingly tells the story of the swimming suffragettes who took to the water to take on the status quo, and won. Spend an hour with Landreth and dive into the past.
