This chapter examines the contribution of Millicent Garrett Fawcett to the feminist movement in Victorian England. Fawcett was the only Victorian feminist who lived to celebrate the enfranchisement of women in 1928 and her own contribution to this was formally recognized in 1924 when she was made a Grand Dame Cross of the Order of the British Empire. Her feminist activities spanned several successive stages. She became a member of the first Women's Suffrage Committee in London in 1867 and president of the National Union of Women's Suffrage in 1918.
