An exhibition exploring the life of Jennie Lee, a founder of The Open University.

Jennie Lee (1904 - 1988) was born in Lochgelly in Scotland, to a mining family. She became an MP in 1929 before she was old enough to vote, becoming the youngest member of the House of Commons and one of the earliest women MPs. She later became the first ever Minister for the Arts, widening access to the arts from London to the rest of the UK.
