The Story of Women and Power
In this series, historian Amanda Vickery tells the story of British women’s battles in the centuries-old war of women vs. men. She profiles women including Mary Wollstonecraft, the mother of feminism; Hannah More, who helped women enter public life; and suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst. Vickery guides the viewer through history, from an early march for women’s rights in 1649 to modern-day campaigns that remind us the fight is not over yet.
