A companion to The Bristol Suffragettes, these short essays span the early days of the women’s suffrage campaign up to the First World War.

This collection brings together many articles written since the publication of The Bristol Suffragettes in 2013. The essays have all been revised and updated, and the collection includes previously unpublished material.
