A Suppressed Cry

Award-winning biographer, Victoria Glendinning writes about her great-aunt Winnie Seebohm, born into a Quaker family in Victorian England, who must fight for an education.
Despite a stifling family, Winnie made it to Cambridge where she was a pioneering bluestocking until illness ended her life aged only 22.
