    Mike Richardson explores the history of Bristol’s Great Western Cotton Works in Barton Hill, which opened in 1838. The story of its workforce — mainly low-paid women and children — has never before been told. From the 1830s to the early twentieth century, Barton Hill workers endured long working hours, high rates of industrial accidents and ill-health from the cotton dust and humidity. Moreover, they were subjected to wage cuts and fines by a series of unrelenting managers. Learn More

  • #39 Lady Blackshirts: The Perils of Perception - Sufragettes who Became Fascists

    During the 1930’s a small group of ultra-nationalistic women, who considered themselves feminists, joined Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists.  Surprisingly some of these women were former high ranking members of the suffragette movement.

    This work examines the political and social tensions that confronted women in the 1930’s.  Exploring issues that were so profound, that some women were drawn into the world of the fascist political elite, and became ‘militant women citizens’ advocating and endorsing fascism.
