Annie Besant was a British socialist, theosophist, women's rights activist, writer, orator, and supporter of both Irish and Indian self-rule. However, Annie's increasingly anti-religious views led to their legal separation in 1873. She then became a prominent speaker for the National Secular Society (NSS), as well as a writer, and a close friend of Charles Bradlaugh. Besant was a prolific writer and a powerful orator.
