Madge Watt by Prof Linda Ambrose

Madge Watt was a woman of great intelligence, tenacious energy and a determination to develop a great rural sisterhood of women.

This we learned from Professor Linda Ambrose’s recent lecture on the life of Mrs Watt, a wealthy Canadian who emigrated to England in 1913 and helped to found the Women’s Institute movement in Britain during World War One.
