We are thrilled to announce that author Jane Duffus will be delivering a fascinating talk about ‘The Women Who Built Bristol‘ as part of our International Women’s Day events. Hear some stories of inspiring women and discover the often overlooked women’s history of Bristol detailed in her books.
The two books in the series contain 500 inspiring women, several sheroic dogs and one heartbroken barmaid from Easton and can be purchased direct from Jane on https://janeduffus.bigcartel.com/. Use the code ‘MARY’ for free P&P, and do let Jane know if you would like the book signed to anyone.
The Women Who Built Bristol books are bursting compendiums of brilliant women who helped to shape Bristol into the vibrant city it is today.
What people are saying about the books:
“Jane Duffus introduces 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” Helen Pankhurst – granddaughter of Sylvia and great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst
