Lady Constance Lytton

In 1908 I invited Lady Constance Lytton to come with us on our annual holiday with our working girls’ Club. She was a very beautiful pianist and I wanted her to play for our folk dancing. Both she and her brother, Neville Lytton, came with us and an artist friend of his, Mr. Geoffroy Duchaume. We had a wonderful holiday, merry with song and dance, and on wet days the girls posed for pictures of the Morris dancers which Mr. Lytton and Mr. Duchaume were painting. Lady Connie, as the girls affectionately called her, was a tremendous favourite and


made the holiday one of the most successful we have ever had. It was here that she met Annie Kenny and Mrs. Pankhurst and Emmeline and it was through this meeting that she very shortly afterwards joined the Social and Political Union and became one of the leaders of the Movement.
