Feathers, Fashion and Feminism: How the RSPB was founded

This is the story of a campaign which started at a Victorian tea party and ended with the founding of Britain’s largest nature conservation charity and an Act of Parliament piloted through by a determined woman in 1921. In this talk by Tessa Boase, explores how the foundation of the RSPB was prompted by a stylish hat for a fashionable Edwardian lady which stirred controversy and came to be known as ‘murderous millinery’.
