The author Annie Besant (1847-1933) was a British social reformer and Theosophist and one of the most active and remarkable personalities of her time. Born Annie Wood, in London, she married a Church of England clergyman named Besant in 1867, but the marriage failed. Born into Anglo-Catholicism, she moved towards atheism and became a leading figure in the National Secular Society. In 1877 she published The Gospel of Atheism and was unsuccessfully prosecuted for selling ‘obscene literature’ – a tract advocating birth control. She campaigned for feminist causes, led the London match girls’ strike of 1888, and became a member of the executive committee of the Fabian Society. A decade later she announced she’d abandoned atheism in favour of the Theosophical Society.
