- Harriet Harman tour, 16th March – 6th April
8 March – International Women’s Day
Join Harriet Harman, one of Britain’s most prominent campaigning politicians and the country’s longest-serving female MP, for an event where she will be discussing her ground-breaking memoir A Woman’s Work. A rare political autobiography by a woman about the last 30 years in British politics, this is the riveting story of her efforts to bring women’s issues to the heart of the Labour Party and of a life dedicated to fighting for equality and respect for women, in the home, workplace and in society.
Written with great warmth and a refreshing humility, this is a frank, inspiring and politically charged work. It offers a crucial insider’s account of the progress (and setbacks) in the Labour Party, UK politics and the way the country has been governed since the 1970s. She shows how far we’ve come – and how much there is still to do.
Full tour dates:
16th March: The Sallis Benney Theatre, Brighton – In conversation with Guardian journalist Polly Toynbee
23rd March: Nottingham Playhouse – In conversation with Dame Margaret Beckett MP
6th April: Thomas Paine Study Centre (Lecture Theatre) UEA, Norwich – In conversation with Dame Margaret Hodge MP
Tickets available: www.penguin.co.uk/live
International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. The day also aims to raise awareness to the fact that progress towards gender parity has actually slowed in many places around the world so urgent concrete action is needed to accelerate gender parity.
