This biography of Gertrude Richardson (1875-1946) examines her key role in the development of feminism and pacifism in England and Canada and her accomplishments as both an activist and a writer. Born in Leicester, England, and raised in a working-class family, Richardson emigrated to northern Manitoba in 1911. She was influential in the women's and peace movements in both countries. Devoutly religious, she challenged orthodoxy and worked outside the mainstream churches for peace and social justice. She co-founded one of the earliest suffrage groups in Manitoba and was a key activist in peace movements during the Boer War and World War I. She also served as an information centre for international anti-war news and ran an internationally-focused women's peace crusade in World War I from her Manitoba farmhouse via the post and newspaper columns. Richardson was also a gifted writer and poet. She wrote on a variety of women's movement issues for British and Canadian newspapers and magazines, including "Woman's Century", the magazine of the National Council of Women of Canada.
