Advocate
    (August 9, 1867-March 21, 1920)
    Born in Kingussie, Scotland, United Kingdom
    Suffragette
    Member of Emmeline Pankhurst's Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU)
    She was the daughter of a baron.
    At 19, she married a man twenty years her senior.
    Sylvia Pankhurst called her 'cold and proud,' adding 'I was repelled when she told me she had no affection for her children.'
    She was arrested for hitting a police officer in the mouth (1910).
    She reportedly said she had not hit him hard enough and added, 'Next time I will bring a revolver.'
    With Emmeline Pankhurst and many other suffragettes, she suspended her militant activities during World War I.
    She founded the Women's Emergency Corps, which recruited women to serve as doctors, nurses and motorcycle messengers.
    She joined the Scottish Women's Hospitals, serving as an administrator and nurse in Serbia and Romania.
    While she was in Serbia, her oldest son John died in battle in Mesopotamia.
    She died of pneumonia in Serbia, having returned after the war to establish orphanages.
    She received Serbia's highest award, the Order of the White Eagle.
    One of the women who worked with her during WWI said, 'She had all the qualities which make a womanly woman and added to them magnificient courage and the divine quality of unselfishness.'
