From time to time I receive requests for help in finding out more about some of the poets and inspirational women on my list. As you will all probably be aware, research is time-consuming and painstaking but very much worthwhile. In the past few weeks I was asked to help find out about WW1 poets Anna Bunston de Bary, Constance Ada Renshaw and Maud Anna Bell.
I managed to find quite a bit out about the first two poets, but Maud Anna Bell remains, for the time being, rather a mystery.
However, in following up one lead, I began to look at The Church League for Women's Suffrage and came across this very well researched and written site which gives a great deal of information about some wonderfully inspirational women.
For anyone interested in the history of women's struggle for recognition and independence, this site is a must-read: http://www.spartacus.schoolnet.co.uk/Wchurch.htm
With many thanks to Rowena from Nottingham.
