Sussex Women: 

'Everybody knows about Virginia and Vanessa, but did you realise that Sussex is (and always has been) the birthplace, home or workplace for many more inspiring, intriguing and formidable women – from royal mistresses to pioneering women doctors, and from educators and philanthropists to Brighton ‘dippers’ and cross-dressing music-hall stars? There’s an impressively large pool of Sussex sisters who have been doing it for themselves over the centuries; Ann Kramer has selected 30 of the best and brings them to vibrant life in a browsable collection of concise, informative and entertaining essays designed to make you want to find out more.'
