Netta Ivory was the co-founder in 1902, along with the barrister, Stephen Coleridge, of the Edinburgh branch of the National Anti-Vivisection Society. This became the Scottish Cooperative Anti-Vivisection Society in 1911, and later the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Vivisection.[1]

Ivory was the daughter of William Ivory, sheriff of Inverness-shire, and granddaughter of James Ivory (1792–1860), the Scottish judge.[2]
