Standard Name: Sharp, Evelyn
Birth Name: Evelyn Jane Sharp
Married Name: Evelyn Jane Nevinson
, whose career occupied the end of the nineteenth century and the first several decades of the twentieth, wrote books for children, journalism, polemic (on behalf of suffragist, internationalist, pacifist, and other movements), novels, travel books, biography, and studies of education, poverty, and other social issues. Her output for children alone amounted to more than twenty books as well as stories counted in the hundreds. Important in this field, and as a suffragist activist and publicist, and with a high professional reputation as a journalist, she made less impression as a novelist (although her fiction is original and inventive). She was later forgotten more completely than almost any of her contemporaries of equal stature.
