The Women Who Built Bristol: Volume Two

“Behind every strong city, there is an even stronger army of women creating the bricks with which to build it. In volume two of ‘The Women Who Built Bristol’ we meet a further 250 inspiring females who fought tooth and nail to shape our city and the wider world. Olympians rub shoulders with boot makers; suffragists stand beside grocers; scientists are as one with artists. They include one washed up whale, two plucky daredevils, 38 women called Mary, 1,955 donated eggs and much, much more besides.”
