As president of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies, a movement which is growing in strength every day, Mrs. Henry Fawcett is recognised as the leader of that section of women who are trying to secure the franchise for women by non-militant methods. Thanks to the indefatigable efforts of Mrs. Fawcett, this union now consists of over 200 societies, and when women " come into their own "they will have much to thank her for. Mrs. Fawcett, of course, is the widow of the Rt. Hon. Henry Fawcett, a noted Postmaster-general, and all her life has interested herself in the welfare of her sex. She is in continual demand as a speaker, and has been known to speak at meetings four or five times every week for six months. She has written a number of books, and finds chief recreation in needlework and music. Her literary work is wide in its range, comprising as it does political economy, biographies, and essays.
