An unlikely feminist in view of her wealthy and conservative background, Jessie Boucherett was a prominent member of the Langham Place group, who established, edited, and contributed to the Englishwoman's Review during the second half of the nineteenth century. Aside from one book-length work, all of her writings were essays and articles printed in various journals and collections. Her writings deal with topics relating to women's rights, particularly the suffrage movement and women's employment.
November 1825 JB, later a prominent feminist reformer, was born at Willingham in Lincolnshire; she was the youngest child in her family. Bibliographic Citation link.
