9780044408956: Local Heroines: Guide to Women in Historical Britain

From Aberdeen to Zennor, Brighton to Bridlington and Plymouth to Polstead, women of all classes through history come alive for the contemporary traveller in this comprehensive guide to the places in mainland Britain associated with individuals and feminist achievements. The book attempts to put women's history firmly on the map by seeking out the birthplaces, former homes, schools, places of work, sources of inspiration, graves and memorials of artists and actors, suffragettes and politicians, trade union activists and welfare workers. This revised and updated edition covers pioneers in every field from medicine to the military. Some of the women are well known; others deserve more recognition. The guide is organized alphabetically by city, town or village for easy reference, with a separate section on London and its boroughs. It includes a biographical index of the women and cross-references to the relevant places of interest, information about houses and museums that are open to the public and directions to those monuments which are more difficult to find.
