The Sweet Science of Bruising

London, 1869

Four very different Victorian women are drawn into the dark underground world of female boxing by the eccentric Professor Sharp

Controlled by men and constrained by corsets, each finds an unexpected freedom in the boxing ring

As their lives begin to intertwine, their journey takes us through grand drawing rooms, bustling theatres and rowdy Southwark pubs, where the women fight inequality as well as each other

But with the final showdown approaching, only one can become the Lady Boxing Champion of the World

An epic tale of passion, politics and pugilism
