Endell Street: The Suffragette Surgeons of World War One, 12:00pm The Assembly Rooms - Buxton Crescent Hotelbutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Endell Street tells the forgotten story of Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson, two pioneering suffragette doctors, and life partners.

In 1915 they were invited by the War Office to establish a major military hospital in Covent Garden in the heart of London.

The 570-bed hospital was staffed entirely by women – including all the doctors, nurses and orderlies – who treated 32,000 returning soldiers wounded on the battlefields of Europe between 1915 and 1919. Wendy Moore is the bestselling author of Wedlock and The Mesmerist.
