Emily Hobhouse (1860-1926) was a Cornish campaigner and activist, most famous for bringing the appalling conditions of the British concentration camps to the attention of the British public during the 2nd Boer War. She also worked to improve the conditions and save the live of the people there, although under much criticism from those back in England. Seen as a heroine in South Africa but known by the British government as ‘That Bloody Woman’, she had a commanding yet compassionate gaze which has won my heart.
