Josephine Butler. Liverpool Anglican cathedral.

  • Description

    A social worker and feminist during Victorian times, when her causes were not popular, Josephine Butler (née Grey) worked with prostitutes and was very concerned for their welfare , campaigning tirelessly for the repeal of the Contagious Diseases Acts and for the raising of the age of consent. She believed passionately in higher education for women. Josephine also lived in Liverpool where her husband was head of Liverpool College, one of the newly established Victorian independent schools. She is remembered here in one of the Staircase windows in Liverpool Anglican cathedral. The windows were given by members of the local Girls' Friendly Society and honour a number of British women.
