Author and broadcaster Jenni Murray, has presented Woman’s Hour for more than 28 years. She has lived through the evolution of feminism during the second half of the 20th century and is in a unique position to discuss women, then and now, and to reflect on her own life and experiences as a feminist, reluctant wife, devoted mother, and ‘Not so Dutiful’ daughter.

What does Dame Jenni make of the new wave of feminism, the role of men, the current debates on gender fluidity, the Women’s Equality Party, Everyday Sexism, Hilary for President, the role of older women, equal pay, the right to die and the perennial question; what do women want?
