Cathy Newman: Bloody Brilliant Women
Manchester Literature Festival presents…
Bloody Brilliant Women, Channel 4 journalist Cathy Newman’s fascinating history of British women, asks two important questions: what were the sources of female power in the 20th century?, and what have women used this power to achieve? Cathy introduces us to women who’ve been long overlooked – from bookbinder Emma Paterson (founder of the Women’s Protective and Provident League) to engineer Beatrice Shilling, who invented a brass collar to prevent fuel flooding RAF plane engines. From journalist Claudia Jones (founder of Notting Hill Carnival) to those who are leading the march onwards in the 21st century. Cathy will be in conversation with host Alex Clark.
