Caroline Norton is till date best remembered as the lady who challenged the patriarchal society of Victorian era and campaigned for giving married women basic legal rights in Britain A passionate campaigner of women’s rights, Norton had a tragic married life which led to her campaigns against unjust laws of marriage. It was due to her relentless effort that the Custody of Infants Act 1839, Matrimonial Causes Act 1857 and Married Women’s Property Act 1870 were finally passed. Ironically, she could not benefit from the laws as her husband, George Norton, dodged them with his legal tricks. In addition to being a social reformer and a well-known feminist, Caroline Norton was also a renowned literary figure. Writing started as means to comfort her soul but eventually took a professional form. She contributed in all the fields: poem, prose, novel, fiction and literary criticism. However, the best bit came with her polemical pamphlets that brought forth significant changes in English Law and inspired other women of her era to continue the struggle for women’s rights

Caroline, along with her two sisters, was exceptionally beautiful and charming. Hence they were popularly known amongst the elites of the London society by the title ‘Three Graces’
