Former BBC Chief News Correspondent and bestselling author Kate Adie will chart the move towards equal rights with men that began a century ago and consider what these women achieved for future generations.

Becoming a visible force in public life, they began to take up essential roles - from transport to policing, munitions to sport, entertainment and even politics.
