The Penguin Podcast: Harriet Harman on A Woman’s Work

Harriet Harman joins Konnie Huq in the Penguin studio to talk about her book A Woman’s Work. 

‘I was prosecuted by the government because of a case I took against the home office in relation to prisoners’ rights.’ 

Harriet brings along objects including her Labour rosette, her favourite apple pie recipe and her lucky jacket (complete with very large shoulder pads). She talks about being pregnant when she joined the 97% male House of Commons in 1982, the rights that she has fought for over the course of her career, and the changes that she would like to see in the future.
