Description

The tried and tested 'On This Day
in History' format has elevated the
stories of many people and their
impact on the wider world. However,
of those considered noteworthy by
the Establishment, just a fraction are
women. But this is not the whole story
- not by half.

Our past is full of influential women,
many of whom have been unfairly
confined to the margins of history.
Politicians, troublemakers, explorers,
artists, writers, scientists and even
the odd murderer; these women have
shaped society around the globe.

From Beyonce to Doria Shafik, Queen
Elizabeth I to Lillian Bilocca, On This
Day She sets out to redress this
imbalance and give voice to both
those already deemed female icons,
alongside others whom the history
books have failed to include: the
good, the bad and everything inbetween
- this is a record of human
existence at its most authentic.
