    Huh, that is a very different association with the name Fawcett than I am used to, in the UK Millicent Garrett Fawcett was one of the prime campaigners for votes for women The organisation she led is now named the Fawcett Society in commemoration of her, it still campaigns for women’s rights. One of her sisters, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson was the first British female doctor.
