Early women’s rights, education for girls and the vote for women – Elizabeth led the way.
For over 50 years Elizabeth significantly influenced many laws relating to women’s rights.
Her strong belief in women as equals and her determination to see women recognised in law fired her energy, even when her life was hard.
