Lina Dorina Johanna Eckenstein (1857-1931) was a British polymath and historian who was acknowledged as a philosopher and scholar in the women's movement. In the late 1880s she joined the Men and Women's Club which allowed middle-class radicals to discuss sex, feminist and liberal issues, and other related matters. Seen as a "new woman", she supported herself financially by conducting research, proofreading, teaching and translation (she was master of a wide range of languages including Middle English and classical and medieval Latin). In 1902 she walked through the upper Arno valley and this account of her travels which includes a wealth of historical detail relating to the region was published that same year. She later worked with archaeologists in Egypt which resulted in the publication of further books and from 1908 became more involved in the campaign to improve women's rights, working alongside Margery Corbett, secretary of the NUWSS, whom she had first met when employed as her governess.
