Description

Karen Hunt, now based in Bridport, is a professor of History at Keele University with a specific interest in women's politics, their engagement in both formal and informal political activity. She has researched and published on women's suffrage in the UK and will bring a fascinating insight into the forgotten histories of women's fight for the vote in Dorset. 

She says "I am particularly interested in the interplay of politics and everyday life, in mapping individual women's political journeys, in women's local, national and international networks and the effect of gossip."
