This walk, led by Madge Dresser, highlights some of the lesser-known stories about women who rebelled against traditional restrictions on their lives and tried to address issues of poverty, ignorance and injustice. Meet market traders and riotous customers, fishwives and poets, religious radicals and stroppy sailors’ wives and see some of the places where women tried to make a difference to public life and their private ones.
