Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joan Beauchamp (1890-1964) was a prominent anti-World War I campaigner, suffragette and co-founder of the Communist Party of Great Britain. She was born in 1890 into a farming family in Midsomer Norton in Somerset. She was the sister of Kay Beauchamp, who went on to become a fellow founder member of the Communist Party of Great Britain. During the First World War, Beauchamp became active in the No Conscription Fellowship (NCF). The NCF was established to help and give advice to the estimated 16,000 pacifists and socialists who refused to join the military and fight. In 1920 she received a ten-day prison sentence for her anti-war activities.
