Josephine Butler Memorial Trust

Josephine Butler

Josephine Butler was one of the most revolutionary social reformers of the nineteenth century. She challenged the inconsistent and hypocritical standards of her time which unjustly disadvantaged women and she campaigned against the sexual exploitation of vulnerable women and children, working for legislative reform to provide them with some degree of protection, equality and justice.

The Josephine Butler Memorial Trust was established in 1979 to promote the education of persons of the Christian faith in theology and social sciences in accordance with the principles of Josephine Butler.
