We thrilled to announce  that author Jane Duffus will be delivering a fascinating talk about ‘The Women Who Built Bristol‘. Hear some stories of inspiring women (and dogs) and discover the often overlooked women’s history of Bristol detailed in her book.

The book contains 250 inspiring women, three sheroic dogs and one heartbroken barmaid from Easton and will available to purchase signed on the day

The Women Who Built Bristol is a bursting compendium 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, this book shows that Bristol was built by women. Also contains 30 brand new illustrations.

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

This is a repeat of the sold out talk on the 23rd March.  This talk is proceeded by a Women’s history tour, featuring some of the women in the talk. Tickets must be purchased separately.
