Biographical notes:

Author and activist Margaret Bondfield emerged from working-class roots to become an important British labour leader. Socially and politically active in the Shop Assistant's Guild and Women's Labour League, she fought for worker's, women's, and children's rights. Her prominence enabled her to become one of the first women to enter the House of Commons, and eventually become Minister of Labour, the first woman to hold Ministerial rank.
