She has been described as a British feminist, intellectual, political and union leader, writer, and a tireless campaigner. She was from a happy family where the children were encouraged to speak her mind and take an interest in politics. Interestingly, her elder sister Elizabeth became Britain's first female doctor.
Millicent's handwriting is fascinating, as it is more irregular than I would have expected (i.e. a bit messy) but at the same time her baseline (the horizontal lines of the writing across the page) are steady. There are squeezed and narrow letters, words that vary in size and height (suspensions and superelevations), and some 'overconnections' (where she joins the two T-bars for example). Some lines tend to droop down at the end, as if she is running out of space.
For me, this handwriting reveals passionate lady who is is affected by events. Her sensitivity and curiosity of mind motivate her. She has a 'stiff upper lip' and has a strong sense of dignity, so attempts to channel her sensitivity into rational action. She has a quick and restless intellect, yet is determined to see projects through to the end.
What a talented lady and what a interesting companion she would have been.
