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

“In this fascinating and eminently readable book, Jane Duffus gives us a real taste of the amazing women that built Bristol and links it superbly to women's achievements and women’s oppression worldwide.” Julie Bindel - journalist, author, broadcaster

“This book is a heartening and affirming read for everyone, especially those who are building Bristol today, clearing their own paths and shining a light for those who follow after.” Finn Mackay - feminist campaigner, university lecturer, author of Radical Feminism: Activism in Movement

“Jane's amazing book will have you captivated with insights about the awesome women who shaped Bristol and inspired to go out and make your own mark on the world.” Kate Smurthwaite - broadcaster, comedian, activist
