Emily Hobhouse | Biography

Elsabé Brits

A fresh, nuanced look at an extraordinary woman and her lifelong fight for justice. Defying the constraints of her gender and class, Emily Hobhouse travelled across continents and spoke out against oppression. A passionate pacifist and a feminist, she opposed both the 1899-1902 Anglo-Boer War and World War One, leading to suspicions of treason. Elsabé Brits travelled in her footsteps to bring to life a colourful story of war, heroism and passion, spanning three continents.
