Elizabeth Fry (1780-1845), Quaker minister and social reformer

Sitter in 6 portraits
An early marriage to a Quaker merchant brought Fry to London, where she became passionately concerned with prison reform, as a result of a visit to the women's quarters in Newgate Prison, 1813. She would also take up other social problems, including the conditions of convicts being transported to Australia, and the lack of night shelters for the poor of London.
