8 Frances Wright (1795–1852)

A plaque is situated on the left hand side of the Nethergate, opposite the Bank of Scotland, which commemorates Frances Wright.

Born in Dundee and daughter of a well-to do Scottish merchant and political radical, Frances herself became an American social reformer whose revolutionary views included campaigning for women’s rights, and the freeing of slaves.

More information on Frances can be found in the Dundee Women’s Trail book.
