Description:

This memoir is the best kind of history—the kind that makes you feel like you are having dinner with John Stuart Mill and Garibaldi. Millicent Garrett Fawcett did have dinner with these men,and others among the most interesting people of her time. One of the most prominent suffragists, she was also a political economist and writer. She and her husband Henry (who was a Liberal MP and a Cambridge professor—as well as a tireless activist for people who were blind, as he was from early manhood) were both passionate for politics and reform, and spent their seventeen years of marriage (before Henry's death at age 51) between Cambridge and London. Their daughter Philippa was an exceptional mathematician and the first woman to place above the "senior wrangler" at Cambridge, in 1890. Interesting family, interesting life, and Millicent is fun to read. [Suggest a different description.]
