Description

Olive Hockin (1881-1936) has never been accorded her rightful place among those brave and resourceful women who fought, and in some cases, risked life and limb, to champion the rights of women. While in many ways she epitomised those in the vanguard of the suffrage movement through her class, liberal education and aesthetic principles, her story reveals a complex character – mixing within elite literary and artistic circles, while revealing a deep understanding and empathy for those whose lives were devoted to work on the land.
