Discover the radical women of Fitzrovia from Mary Wollstonecraft, author of "A Vindication of the Rights of woman' to activist and writer Una Marson, the first Black broadcaster at the BBC. French anarchist Louise Michel established an International school here. Suffragists Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence and Lily Montagu pioneered community work with young women working in the rag trade; Marie Stopes opened the first birth control clinic and the Rossetti children published a journal endorsed by Kropotkin with contributions by George Bernard Shaw and Zola.
