Abstract

The article focuses on the life and works of public worker and activist Amelia Scott who fought for women's rights towards political transformation in Tunbridge Wells, England. It states that Scott was the former secretary of the National Council of Women in 1895 where she detailed the political transition to scientific philanthropy from conventional to social activist. The local social activism provided women the power and personal satisfaction to influence other women the national political arena to social conditions that moved her to engage in social, political and community work.
