2018 marks the centenary of some British women getting the vote, and The Century Girls features six women who have lived through ten decades of staggering changes. Edna, 102, was a domestic servant. Helena, 101, was the eldest of eight from a Welsh farming family. Olive, 102, was a child of empire in British Guiana and one of the first women to migrate to London after the war. There's Ann, a 103-year-old London bohemian; 100-year-old Phyllis, daughter of the Raj; and finally 'young' Joyce - a 99-year-old Cambridge classicist. Through the prism of these women's lives, The Century Girls provides a personal account of British history over the past 100 years.
