Elizabeth Wolstenholme Elmy (1833-1918) was one of the most significant champions of women's emancipation in Britain. As an activist, she was at the heart of every Victorian suffrage campaign, as a feminist thinker, the first to speak from a public stage about rape in marriage. Drawing on her prolific journalism, speeches, correspondence and other documents, this meticulously researched biography rescues from obscurity a pioneering feminist hailed by Emmeline Pankhurst as 'the first'.
