For 50 years, Etta Lemon (1860-1953) campaigned against the worldwide slaughter of birds for extravagantly feathered hats. As Tessa Boase reveals, Etta's long battle against "murderous millinery" triumphed with the Plumage Act of 1921, but her legacy has been eclipsed by the more glamorous campaign for the vote, led by the elegantly plumed Emmeline Pankhurst.
