Elizabeth Robbins

Sydney Stewart

Born in Louisville, Kentucky during the American Civil war, Elizabeth moved to London in 1888 continuing her career as an actor. In 1913 she was sharing her house in Sussex with Octavia Wilberforce, a doctor. Both of them became very active in the Votes for Women movement, and when the notorious “Cat and Mouse Act” was passed and hunger-striking suffragettes were released from prison temporarily, they opened up their house to these convalescing women. Some suffragettes were also hidden there.
