Susanna Morgan: campaigning for reform in early 19th century Bristol ALHA No 34
After the end of the Napoleonic Wars, Britons were increasingly aware of many social ills. This awareness contributed to the great wave of reforms which followed the passing of the 1832 Reform Bill. One of the most active of Bristol’s campaigners for reform was Susanna Morgan. She wrote and published on several major causes, and took an active part in new institutions. But, as a woman, she often remained anonymous in her time and so has been mostly overlooked since. Here Michael Whitfield tells her remarkable story; with sketches of some of the other active women who were her friends and colleagues.
