100 Leading Ladies

UK Publisher: Dewi Lewis Media Ltd

100 Leading Ladies is a celebration of the vast and varied achievements of 100 of Britain’s influential senior women. This is a living history exploring in depth the personal and private issues surrounding women s success in the workplace, helping to transform the perception of what is possible for women to achieve in their lives. The book features well-known women such as Germaine Greer, Lucinda Lampton and Kirsty Wark, as well as those who are primarily known and admired by their peers in their respective fields, such as Averil Mansfield, the UK s first female professor of surgery. There are politicians, scientists, restauranteurs, CEOs, authors, Britain s oldest working super model and many more. Many of them are the first women in their fields. All of them lived through a remarkable era of change that has affected us all. Award-winning photographer Nancy Honey invited each of these Leading Ladies to choose a place where she goes for inspiration for her portrait setting. This gives the viewer further insight into the lives, personalities and character of these admirable women. Interviewed by former Times journalist Hattie Garlick, each woman, in her own words, shares valuable advice and personal reflection.
