 Florence Nightingale (1820-1910) is best known for her pioneering approach to nursing wounded soldiers during the Crimean War.

However, she was also a talented statistician and early feminist writer. One of her essays entitled Cassandra was published in 1928 in The Cause, a history of the women's movement by Ray Strachey.
