Extraordinary is an apt description for the life of Rebecca West. Born in England in 1892, Rebecca (whose real name was Cicely Isabel Fairfield) observed years of change and conflict and recorded her observations in international publications.

Rebecca and her two sisters were encouraged to think for themselves. Early in their lives they championed the cause of voting rights for all people. Rebecca's first published writing, written when she was fifteen-years-old, was a letter to the editor of the Scotsman newspaper in defense of suffrage for women, drawing attention to women working in leadwork factories who had no rights or representation.
