Life of Frances Power Cobbe as Told by Herself


Read by Ciufi Galeazzi

(3.6 stars; 5 reviews)

Frances Power Cobbe was an important Irish-Anglo writer, suffragist, anti-vivisectionist, philosopher, and reformer of the mid to late 1800s. She is best known for her campaigns for women's rights (in particular, both the right to vote and the right to a full university education), and against wife abuse and vivisection. She was the lifelong partner of Welsh sculptor Mary Lloyd. This autobiography was written very late in her life, and published shortly after her death. - Summary by Ciufi Galeazzi (22 hr 32 min)
