Mary Carpenter (1807 - 1877)
A champion of destitute children, committed Unitarian, and a leading light of the ‘ragged school movement’ in Bristol, Carpenter campaigned tirelessly for the more humane treatment of young offenders and child workers. She hosted African-American anti-slavery activists in Bristol from the 1840s and, inspired by Ram Mohan Roy, later travelled to India to promote women’s education there.

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.
