Prominent campaigning politician and the country’s longest-serving female MP Harriet Harman will be at the Sallis Benney Theatre sharing stories of her work dedicated to fighting for equality and respect for women in all fields of life with Guardian journalist Polly Toynbee. The event is part of a series of Author Visits at the University of Brighton.Harriet Harman’s memoir A Woman’s Work (Penguin) is rare political autobiography by a woman about the last 30 years in British politics. It tells the story of her efforts to bring women’s issues to the heart of the Labour Party and of a career spent fighting for equality and respect for women, in the home, workplace and in society.
Described as a “frank, inspiring and politically charged work”, the book offers an 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.
Harriet Harman will be in conversation with respected Guardian columnist Polly Toynbee.
