A talk by Elizabeth Crawford about Millicent Fawcett and her circle, exploring the part she played in improving lives of women in the 19th and 20th centuries and her contribution to women’s suffrage.
The majestic sight of Salisbury Cathedral would have been familiar to Millicent Fawcett, who was a regular visitor to 27 The Close, the home in the late 1800s of her parents-in-law, William and Mary Fawcett. Millicent was a tireless advocate of the vote for women — a peaceful campaigning suffragist as opposed to the more radical suffragettes. It is therefore apt that, 100 years on from the Representation of the People Act, she will be remembered.
