Britain's longest-serving female MP is heading to the University of East Anglia to discuss her ground-breaking memoir, A Woman's Work.

Chaired by Dame Margaret Hodge, the event will take place on Thursday, April 6.

A Labour Party politician, Harriet Harman was elected as an MP in 1982, joining a House of Commons which was 97pc male.

Since then, she has served in various Cabinet and Shadow Cabinet positions, gone on to have three children while in Parliament, introduce the National Childcare Strategy and was the first woman to represent the Labour Party at Prime Minister's Questions.

Her autobiography takes a rare look at British politics over the last 30 years and tells the story of her efforts to fight for equality and respect for women, in the home, workplace and in society.

Tickets for the event cost between £11.02-£16.32 and can be purchased from Eventbrite.co.uk
