Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ada Nield Chew (28 January 1870 - 27 December 1945) was a British suffragette. Ada Nield was born on a farm near Butt Lane in North Staffordshire on 28 January 1870, daughter of Willam and Jane (n e Hammond) Nield. She left school at the age of eleven to help her mother take care of house and family. When she was in her twenties she worked as a tailor in a factory in Crewe, Cheshire, but was dismissed after writing a series of letters to The Crewe Chronicle which criticised working conditions in the factory. Following this she became active in the Independent Labour Party and in 1896, she toured the north-east of England in the Clarion Van to publicise the ILP's policies. Shortly afterwards, in 1897 she married George Chew another ILP organiser. Their daughter, Doris, (and only child) was born in the following year. Chew then became an organiser for the Women's Trade Union League.show more
