I’m also working on a biography of suffragette Millicent Browne.(less)

I also find inspiration through immersing myself in the culture of the period through its arts, literature and politics. One of the most important literary inspirations for Bloodie Bones was John Clare’s beautiful poem The Mores, which brings home the impact of enclosures on the working people affected by them. And I also see connections between what’s happening today and what happened in the past – the enclosures movement, for example, shaped our landscape, it helped alter people’s working patterns, and encouraged the development of industrial towns.

A Blue Plaque to the Bristol and West of England Women's Suffrage Society will be unveiled on 15 December 2018. Although I've written about the militant suffragettes, why was it so important to me to arrange for a Blue Plaque commemorating the non-militant suffragists? 
It’s one hundred years since British women voted in Parliamentary elections for the first time following the enactment of th... Read more of this blog post »
