More on the workers of Bath.....Women - 1911

In 1911

There were 10446 female workers in Bath.
Over half, 5388 of them were employed in domestic service rolls.

                                (yes, this is Downton.....sorry!)

1911 also saw Eagle House in Batheaston used as a refuge for suffragettes recovering from ill treatment (1909-1912)
Women fighting for a voice were imprisoned and often force fed.
