A trailblazing four-part documentary series on the history of women will air on BBC Two this autumn.
Charting the role of women in society over 10,000 years, The Ascent Of Woman is the first ever documentary to explore the history of women from the birth of civilisation to the contemporary era.
Focusing on the themes of freedom, oppression, inclusion and exclusion, the series aims to study the status of women and women’s rights.
The series is written and presented by Dr Amanda Foreman, the author of Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire.
