Stephanie Racine narrates Women: Our History, which re-examines history from a female perspective. This audiobook celebrates the numerous important roles women have played in culture and society that are less often told. Packed full of evocative facts, and with a foreword by Lucy Worsley, this audiobook reveals the key events in women's history - from early matriarchal societies through women's suffrage, the Suffragette movement, 20th-century feminism and gender politics, to recent movements such as #MeToo and International Women's Day - and the key role women have had in shaping our past. Learn about the everyday lives of women through the ages as well as the big names of women's history - powerful, inspirational, and trailblazing women such as Cleopatra, Florence Nightingale, Emmeline Pankhurst, Eva Peron, and Rosa Parks - and discover the unsung contributions of lesser-known women who have changed the world, and the "forgotten" events of women's history. Placing women firmly centre stage, Women: Our History shows women where they have come from, and, in celebrating the achievements of women of the past offers positive role models for women of today. © 2019 Dorling Kindersley Ltd © 2019 DK Audio
