British union official and labor leader Margaret Bondfield [1873- 1953] was a lifelong advocate of improving the lives of working women, working towards this goal as a labor activist, suffragist and politician. A working class woman who started her career as a shop assistant, her reform efforts eventually brought her into the highest levels of government. She served as a member of Parliament in the 1920s and in 1929 became the country's first female cabinet official when she was appointed Minister of Labor.
