Charlotte Despard (1844 - 1939):
Feminist and social reformer


Charlotte Despard was born in England of Anglo-Irish parents. In 1890 she became a Catholic and until the 1920s was an active suffragist. She came to Ireland during 1916, shared a house with Maud Gonne, and was an active supporter of Sinn Fein. She visited the Soviet Union in 1930 and returned to Ireland with the anomalous identity of a Catholic Communist. She came to Belfast, where she eventually died. She is buried at Glasnevin Cemetery.
