We all know that Margaret Thatcher was Britain's first female Prime Minister, but who was the first woman: accused of witchcraft?; awarded the Order of Merit?; elected a member of the House of Commons?; convicted of murder? And did you know that it was a woman who: wrote the first known autobiography in the English language?; introduced the first Marriage and Divorce Act into Parliament?; invented overarm bowling? Revised and updated, this edition charts 2000 years of women's achievement in the UK. It is a revealing and contemporary collection of British groundbreakers: women pirates, engineers, robbers, actresses, doctors, dentists, politicians, meteorologists, war correspondents and many more.
