In 1907, suffragette Annie Kenney brought the militants' fight for women's right to vote to Bristol. For the next few years the city rang with the cry 'Votes for Women!' From colourful demonstrations on the Downs and stone-throwing in the Centre, to riots on Queen's Road and arson in the suburbs, in Bristol Suffragettes Lucienne Boyce tells the fascinating story of Bristol's suffragette years. The book includes a short tour through the Bristol of the suffragettes.

About the Author
Lucienne Boyce was brought up in the Midlands and now lives in Bristol, which is the inspiration and setting for much of her writing. Until a few years ago she had no idea that suffragettes were so active in the city. Then, while rummaging in the Corn Exchange market, she came across a photograph of a group of women standing under a Women's Suffrage banner. She's been researching and writing about the Bristol suffragettes ever since, and has set up a Bristol Suffragette Project website at lucienneboyce.com.
