The late eighteenth century of Great Britain displayed a society influenced by outside thinkers, such as Rousseau, and dealing with the results of the American and French Revolutions. During this time a young women named Georgiana Cavendish began to break the mold that many aristocratic nobles adhered to for many years. The purpose of looking at Georgiana’s life and short career in politics is to show that women indeed could campaign in a very effective way. Though her campaigning got her friend a seat in Parliament, her exposure to the public during this time caused her and the person she campaigned for to lose some respect in the eyes of the public.
