Though chiefly remembered as the wife of the celebrated Arts and Crafts designer CR Ashbee, Janet Ashbee was an influential writer and thinker in her own right. In this intimate, informative biography, her daughter charts the private and public life of this pioneering feminist and socialist for the first time. Setting Ashbee's achievements in the context of a period when established norms were increasingly challenged, it also examines how she came to terms with her husband's well-known homosexuality.
