Annie Besant

(I don't agree with calling her a heretic but it gives a good summary)

Nicely summarised. When I wrote about Besant, I was excited by the impact she had on Australia's most creative women. She must have been a very persuasive role model.

Thanks for the link

Good post of yours. I had never come across the Australian angle. I agree with Jill about the appeal to women and both Besant and Blavatsky were very strong personalities with what might today be called magnetic personalities, eg. Besant and the Match Girls. Leaving aside the Theosophy bit she is a heroine of mine and her writings are still interesting today.

I had never heard of her. Thanks for sharing. Thanks, also, for all the beautiful paintings.

Thanks Heidi, as you may gather I think she was really fascinating.

'Free-thinker' seems more appropriate than 'Heretic' - such courage to step outside the rigid social conventions of the time.
