Barbara Leigh Smith Bodichon by Pam Hirsch
Book DescriptionBarbara Leigh Smith Bodichon was the most unconventional and influential leader of the Victorian women's movement. Enormously talented, energetic and original, she was a feminist, law-reformer, painter, journalist, the close friend of George Eliot and a cousin of Florence Nightingale. As a painter, Barbara is now recognised as a vital figure among Pre-Raphaelite women artists. As a feminist she led four great campaigns: for married women's legal status, for the right to work, the right to vote and to education. Making brilliant use of unpublished journals and letters, Pam Hirsch has written a biography that is as lively and powerful as its subject, recreating the woman in all her moods, and placing her firmly in the context of women's struggle for equality.

UK Kirkus Review » It is extraordinary that Barbara Bodichon is not a better-known figure in British history. Hirsch's totally absorbing biography opens up the life and times of one of the most charismatic women of the 19th century. Her enormous talent, energy and originality helped make her name as a feminist, law-reformer, painter, journalist and educationalist. Born into a strongly political background, she knew 'as much about framing petitions as framing paintings', and she led four major campaigns. Drawing on Bodichon's sketches and paintings as well as her journals and letters, Hirsch has pieced together a brilliant portrait of a vivacious and courageous woman. (Kirkus UK)
