Jennie Lee

Book

The extraordinary life of the radical MP you’ve never heard of…

In 1929, Jennie Lee left her coal-mining family in Scotland to become Westminster’s youngest MP – so young that, as a woman, she couldn’t even vote for herself.

Tenacious, bold and rebellious, Jennie cut her own path through history.

Jennie fought with her every breath for the betterment of all our lives. She believed that every person deserved their share of the fruits of the earth – for wages, health, and housing, and for art and education too.

Her role in the foundation of the Open University and the expansion of the Arts Council aided Jennie’s fight for bread and roses, and in doing so, changed the twentieth century.

Oh yes, and founder of the NHS Nye Bevan was her husband. But Jennie is no footnote in someone else’s past.

Join Marsden-based Mikron Theatre Company as they tell her story and say her name – this is the one, the only, Jennie Lee.
