This month, activist and author Helen Pankhurst talks about the legacy of her surname and how the law still needs to work harder for women.

Helen is an activist, an author, granddaughter of Sylvia and great granddaughter of Emmeline.  She is currently a senior advisor at relief agency CARE international, working across the UK and Ethiopia where she was brought up.

This episode also features a specially commissioned song to commemorate 100 years since women were allowed to practise law in the UK.  Written and performed by Claire Mooney.
