Notorious Women of Brighton

Louise Peskett


Louise Peskett is a tour-guide and the creator of the popular ‘Notorious Women of Brighton’ women’s history walks.  She has now written Fierce and Fabulous: A Journey Around Brighton and Hove’s Women’s History. 

Louise will share some of the stories she has found including the first British woman to swim the Channel, an African princess, a Soviet spy-cum-antiques dealer, a woman who started a rogue all-woman police force, and the brilliant doctor whose story is so shocking, the British Army tried to repress it for 100 years.  Discover fierce and fabulous women who all, in their own ways, changed the world.
