Katharine Bruce Glasier was a socialist-feminist writer and activist at the turn of the nineteenth century whose writing advances her ideas for social reform. She wrote newspaper articles, pamphlets, short stories, and novels all in the service of her socialist-feminist ideals. She also wrote poetry. She lectured widely throughout Britain for both the Fabian Society and the Independent Labour Party , and for many years contributed to the Labour Leader, which was (latterly as the New Leader) the primary propaganda vessel of the ILP. A key figure in the Labour movement, KBG was the only woman member of the organizational team that led to the establishment of the Independent Labour Party, and the first woman elected as director of its National Administrative Council . She was also a founding member of the Women's Labour League .
