Here is an article about Lady Nancy Astor (1879 - 1964), who is remembered as the first woman to take a seat in the British House of Commons (she was, in fact, not the first woman to be elected, but she was the first woman to actually serve in that body).

Born in Virginia, she was the daughter of a former Confederate officer who refused to send her to college, thereby sparking her interests in the Suffrage movement. Following the divorce from her first husband in 1903, she set sail for Britain and met Waldorf Astor (1879 1952) while on board ship. The two were wed in 1906 and soon developed and interest in British politics. She became a Member of Parliament in 1919 and served in the House of Commons until 1945.
