Rebel Women is a podcast about history's troublemakers.
These women chained themselves to railings, poured ink in postboxes and sometimes worse. One woman even followed Churchill on his public speaking tour, ringing a bell every time he tried to speak.
They defy everything we know about Victorian ladies. They were loud and angry; and they weren't afraid to show it. We feel that same anger today.
These women inspire us to keep fighting.
Today's show comes to you in three parts. Three parts for three stories about three women. Women who would risk everything for what they believed in.
Rebel Women is part of the Women Activists of East London project, which has been developed by Share UK, a non-profit community group based in London.
