Elected as Labour MP for Peckham in 1982, Harriet Harman bucked the trend by not only joining a House of Commons which was 97% male, she also hit the work / life balance motherload by having three children while in Parliament. A bastion of women’s rights, introducing the National Childcare Strategy, the Equality Act and changing the law on domestic violence, her autobiography is a powerful insight into changing the women’s politics landscape from within.
