Event description

Description


Camden Saturday guided walk starting at Russell Square Station and endIng in Torrington Square a short distance from Russell Square Underground station. It will take between 1.5 and 2 hrs.

In the Victorian Britain a women's place was considered to be in the home and children were treated as "expendable". The movement for women's suffrage began in the 1860s with organised campaigns for votes for women but it was not until the early 1900s that the more militant suffragette movement began. At the outbreak of war 1914 the suffrage movement scaled down and many of those involved devoted their energies to the war effort. On this walk through some of Bloomsbury's Squares we hear about some of those women, about the first ever hospital specifically for children; a hospital founded thanks to the efforts of sisters seeking care for their grandmother and meet some the women pioneers of medicine and science.
