Biographical history

Millicent Garrett was born at Aldeburgh, Suffolk on 11 June 1847 and educated at a school at Blackheath. In April 1867 she married Henry Fawcett, Professor of Economics at Cambridge and Member of Parliament. Because of her husband's blindness Millicent shared his working life even more than would normally be the case. The couple had one daughter, Philippa, born in 1868. Henry Fawcett died in 1884. Millicent Fawcett was a tireless leader in the struggle for women's suffrage, serving as president of the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies from 1897 to 1918. She published her autobiography, What I Remember in 1924. She died in London on 5 August 1929.
