History

Louisa Garrett Anderson (1873-1943), doctor and suffragette, was the daughter of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the first woman to qualify as a doctor in Great Britain. She was instrumental in founding the University of London Graduates’ Women’s Suffrage Society and the Tax Resistance League, and was an active member of the Women’s Social and Political Union, of which continued to be a member after her mother left in protest at the arson campaign of 1911. The following year she was imprisoned briefly for her militant activity. On the outbreak of war in September 1914 she and Dr Flora Murray formed the Women’s Hospital Corps, which established hospitals, staffed entirely by women, in France and at Endell Street, London. After the war she spent much time travelling. Her biography of her mother was published by Faber & Faber in 1939.
