Containing 250 inspiring women, three sheroic dogs and one heartbroken barmaid from Easton, this is a bursting compendium of brilliant women from pin makers to police chiefs, from workhouse inmates to secret agents who helped to shape Bristol into the vibrant city it is today.

The book contains 30 commissioned illustrations and spans almost 900 years from Princess Eleanor of Brittany (1184-1241) who was imprisoned in Bristol Castle for 39 years by her uncle King John who stole the throne from her. The most recent entry is author Helen Dunmore who died in 2017.

Author and editor Jane Duffus has compiled the book on behalf of Bristol Women's Voice and many of the entries are provided by guest writers, women historians and academics.

It's the most comprehensive book about Bristol women to date and seeks to celebrate the less well-known women of our past as well as the key big names.
