British philanthropist and campaigner on women's issues The daughter of Richard Dawson and Agnes, Lady Walsingham. She studied music and gained the gold medal and diploma of the London Academy of Music. She helped to organise the International congress of Animal protection Societies, held in London in 1906. As a result of her work for animal welfare she was awarded silver medals by Finland and Denmark. Later she became interested in the possibility of a women's police force. Based on the experience of the other countries, she founded the Women Ploice Volunteers (which then became the Women's Police Service) in 1914. When her health deteriorated, she was forced to retire in 1919 and was replaced as Commandant of the Women's Police Service by Mary Allen.
