Ethel Tawse Jollie
Ethel Maud Tawse Jollie M.L.C. (8 March 1874 – 21 September 1950) was a writer, political activist and the first and for many decades only, woman parliamentarian in the British overseas empire.
She was born Ethel Maude Cookson in Castle Church, Stafford and studied art under Anthony Ludovici at the Slade School of Art where she met her first husband, explorer A. R. Colquhoun. After Colquhoun's death on 18 December 1914, she replaced him as editor of United Empire magazine. She later remarried a Rhodesian farmer called John Tawse Jollie. She was one of the front figures in the campaign for Rhodesian self-rule, founding the Responsible Government Association in 1917. She was a leading member of the National Service League, the Imperial Maritime League, the British Women's Emigration Society, the Women's Unionist Association, and the Southern Rhodesian Legislative Council. Ethel Tawse Jollie was an avowed anti-suffragist and anti-feminist. She died in Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia, on 21 September 1950.
