Isabella Tod (1836-1896) was a suffragist and activist of Scottish origins. She mainly worked to advance the rights of women in Ireland.

She founded the North of Ireland Women’s Suffrage Society in 1872, and organised the Liberal Women’s Unionist Association. She campaigned extensively to repeal the Contagious Diseases Acts, a law that allowed police to arrest and hold women suspected of being prostitutes for months – her organisation won the fight in 1866.

Texas Woman: I Was Forced to Consent to Bury Fetal Remains After Miscarriage in “Horrific” Ordeal:

It’s not law to bury or cremate your body after death, why is it law to do so with a corpse of a fetus? Many miscarriages happen even before the woman knows she’s pregnant. Should I have a three to five day wake for every period I have?!? These people are focusing FAR too much on the wrong things! This is disgusting.

“Nobody says, hey, maybe men should not drink because that might make them … it’s mind boggling,” Stewart said. “It’s all about women must dress differently, women must walk differently, women must drink differently. Why are we not able to hold men to account for this behavior?”
