Due to COVID-19 this event is postponed. Please keep an eye on our website for updates.

We thrilled to announce that author Jane Duffus will be delivering  another of her fascinating talks about ‘The Women Who Built Bristol‘ . Hear some new stories of inspiring women  and discover the often overlooked women’s history of Bristol detailed in her books.  Even if you’ve heard Jane speak before, she will be sharing lots of new stories of wonderful (and not so wonderful) women in this new talk.

The Women Who Built Bristol volume one and two  are  bursting compendiums of brilliant women who helped to shape Bristol into the vibrant city it is today. From pin makers to police chiefs, from workhouse inmates to lord mayors, these book shows that Bristol was built by women. Copies of both volumes  will be available for sale and Jane will be very happy to sign your copy. https://www.janeduffus.com/

What people are saying about the book:

“Jane Duffus and fellow contributors of The Women Who Built Bristol introduce us to a glorious and eclectic set of women who are linked to Bristol. This a wonderful reminder of the texture of women’s lives and their influence in every sphere – something historical accounts often forget. A great initiative from Bristol Women’s Voice, I hope other cities also follow suit.”
Helen Pankhurst – granddaughter of Sylvia and great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst
