Jessie Stephen, MBE (1893 - 1979)
In her youth, Scottish-born Stephen was a suffragette and socialist organiser of her fellow domestic servants. She came to Bristol in her forties, where she worked for the Co-op, served as a City Councillor and in 1952 was elected the first woman president of the Bristol Trades Council. By 1971, she became a founding member of Bristol’s Women’s Liberation Movement.

About Journey to Justice Bristol
The Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft (PRSC) and Journey to Justice Bristol (JToJ) are participating in a project to visualise Bristol’s history of activism and struggles for social justice.
As part of a variety of exciting and innovative activities for the JToJ event throughout October 2017, PRSC is working with JToJ to celebrate and honour key activists in Bristol that have contributed to and inspired the social movement but have not been recognised for their actions. To raise awareness about these people, we feature their likeness and ideas on fine bone china mugs and prints.
