Ethel Carnie Holdsworth (1886 –1962), grew up in East Lancashire. She is now best known as a working-class writer, feminist, and socialist activist, but she was first noticed as a poet, journalist and children's writer. She is believed to be the first working-class woman in Britain to publish a novel and went on to publish ten novels during her lifetime.
