Hidden Heroine: Isabel Salt

Hidden heroine: Isabel Salt

Isabel Salt, granddaughter to Sir Titus Salt, was the only daughter of four children to Titus Salt Jnr and Catherine (nee Crossley). By the age of eleven and a half her family had entertained two visits of Royalty and mourned the death of her father. She became a prominent speaker on women’s right to vote and the cause of pacifism. She was continually active in the women’s Liberal Association and worked for the welfare of the poor and the independence and equality of women. At the age of around 49 she moved to Oxted, Surrey, having lived in Bingley, Ben Rydding, Thorpe Arch and Harrogate prior to that, and continued her campaigning work.
