Administrative / Biographical History

Annie Ramsay (fl.1913) was one of those who took part in the Women's Pilgrimage organised by the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. This took place in 1913 with members of the Local branches of the Union crossing the country between Jun-Jul 1913 and converging on London at a large rally in Hyde Park. Their aim during the spiritually themed march was to raise awareness of their aims and create propaganda which counteracted perceived hostile public opinion that, they believed, had been generated by the violent militant actions of the Women's Social & Political Union.
