Biographical notes:

Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence was born into a large family in Bristol. A rebellious child, she became a social worker in London, organizing a club for young working-class girls. Exposed to extreme poverty, she converted to Socialism; her marriage to wealthy lawyer Frederick Lawrence required his conversion, and an agreement to adopt the joint name Pethick-Lawrence. She was active in the Women's Social and Political Union, until she was expelled for disagreeing with their more radical programs. She remained active in social programs for the rest of her life.
