Social Reformer. She was 14 when she attended her first public meeting about votes for women. With her daughter Christabel she organized increasingly militant campaigns, which led to her imprisonment in 1908 for three months for breach of the peace. Later imprisonments in 1912 and 1913 led to her campaign of hunger-striking. During WWI, militant demonstrations were suspended, and in 1918 the first laws were passed to give women the vote. Joining the Conservative Party in the 1920s, she stood for Parliament herself, but died shortly after the passage of the 1928 Act which gave women full voting rights.
