Bloody Brilliant Women
Published : 4 Oct 2018 - William Collins


This is a golden book, setting out the record of women’s achievements so they can never be challenged again.

Joan Bakewell

For far too long, women’s achievements have been airbrushed out of history. In this groundbreaking book, the first of its kind, Cathy Newman has done a bloody brilliant job of painting them back in bright, vivid colours... I just wish this book had been written when I was growing up.

Nicola Sturgeon

Powerful, poignant and often provoking – this book shines a light on the contribution of women of all ages, ethnicities, faiths and backgrounds who have helped to make our city and country so great.

Sadiq Khan

Brilliant, enlightening, and a powerful reminder of the extraordinary and sustained courage of the women who fought against overwhelming odds for equality of opportunity, for rights and respect. This book is so important. No library, no school or university, should be without a copy.

Michael Morpurgo

Cathy has done a great service to women and girls by telling so many amazing stories and by doing so has shown what a bloody brilliant woman she is.

Martha Lane Fox

A litany of fresh heroes to make the embattled heart sing

Caitlin Moran

Thank you, Cathy Newman, for inspiring a new generation of heroines, by shining a spotlight on their heritage

BLOODY BRILLIANT WOMEN is right up there – all the women I never knew about when I was growing up!

Harriet Harman MP

Newman is a brilliant writer; each chapter throws up something even more interesting than the last and the prose shifts seamlessly between them.
