Event description

Description

2018 marks the centenary of (some) women getting the vote. This walk introduces seven extraordinary women of the Garrett family; all active suffragists. Three sisters, two daughters, a cousin, a sister-in-law - all with ground-breaking careers and active in public life. Elizabeth (Garrett Anderson) was the first woman to qualify in England as a doctor, Millicent (Garrett Fawcett) fought for women to get the vote, Agnes and Rhoda established a top interior design company, Fanny was a landscape gardener and Philippa a brilliant mathematician. Join me on a walk through Bloomsbury to see and see the places they lived and worked and the legacy they left behind.
